Another Great Season
Our 27th season of raising organic vegetables and herbs was stellar, but don’t take our word for it: read reviews from our shareholders. Perhaps you would like to join us for 2017.
From a Shareholder
I’m writing just to thank you for providing me and my family with delicious, fresh vegetables all summer long. I returned to the CSA after a few summers off…. I’m so glad I did. Your vegetable variety and quality are better than any I have seen. I appreciate the professionalism (timely delivery, good communication, attention to customer satisfaction) as well the opportunity to learn about the trials and pleasures of organic farming from Farmer John’s newsletters. It was a home run year, as far as I’m concerned! I’ve already paid for my 2017 share.
So, thank you! Looking forward to next year.

By the way, I also signed up for the fruit share again for 2017. Can’t stop thinking about those Georgia peaches and sweet cherries. I enjoy learning a little about the farms that produce the fruit, too.

The extended season shares start in late October or early November, and end before Thanksgiving.

I just wanted to let you know that this is the first time I have ever signed up for a [CSA] share. It has been truly wonderful to expose my city kids to organic, local produce that should be eaten seasonally. I share my box with a friend and her family and we love how it is packed to the brim with great, fresh produce. We appreciate you and your team for providing this for us and we look forward to next years bounty. Thanks again for all that you do.

Home delivery is available to most Illinois zip codes within 45 miles of Chicago. Home delivery is $12 per delivery. Visit our home delivery page for more details. (Sorry, home delivery is not available in Boone county, Winnebago county, or in Wisconsin.)
Final note: your home delivery service made all the difference for me. Delivery was always early in the specified time frame. This option made my life easier! Additionally, the ability to rearrange my delivery schedule around vacation times was so helpful.
Pay for your share with PayPal with no added fee. You do not need to have a PayPal account to pay with a credit or debit card through PayPal.
Note: You will choose your pickup location or home delivery address before you reach PayPal. PayPal asks for a shipping address, but just check the box “Ship to my billing address.” Any address you enter in PayPal is not necessarily the address where your share will be delivered. The actual shipping address will be determined in the signup process prior to PayPal.
Where is the farm?
We are in Boone County, located about 90 miles NW of downtown Chicago, and 20 miles NE of Rockford. Our address is 1547 Rockton Road, Caledonia, IL 61011.
When does the season start?
Our delivery season starts in early June and ends in late October. We also offer an extended season share, which starts in late October or early November, and ends before Thanksgiving.
What’s in the box?
The box contents vary depending on the time of the season. This is a great feature of Community Supported Agriculture, that your share provides seasonal eating. Find out what’s in the box.
Is the share a good value?
Overall, based on various comparison studies we’ve seen and also based on analyses of our own share prices, you can expect your Angelic Organics CSA share to cost about 1/4 to 1/3 less than if you bought comparable organic vegetables from a grocery store such as Whole Foods.
How much produce should I expect?
We do our best to fill your 3/4 bushel box to the brim, equivalent to about 1 & 1/2 regular paper grocery bags. From late summer through fall, your box may bulge with over 20 lbs of produce. One full share generally satisfies the needs of two people with a vegetarian diet or four people with a mixed diet.

Your Very Own Farm, Without all the Work!
When you join our CSA, you enter into a relationship to more than the food you receive from us; you enter into a relationship with the source of your food, a farm—a farm you can visit. This is what distinguishes the CSA program from all the other ways you can buy your vegetables—in a certain way, as a shareholder, you have your very own farm. You don’t have to plow the fields, pay the crew, keep the books, maintain the equipment, or harvest the crops, but still, through your purchase of a share, you will probably start referring to Angelic Organics as our farm. Read more about relationship to a farm in Farmer John’s blog post, Farm Monogamy.
Things are a lot different now in the healthy food movement, compared to the 90’s when Angelic Organics was one of the first Community Supported Agriculture farms in the region. There are many CSA farms serving the Chicago area today, and numerous other ways for people to receive organic vegetables. So, we made a list of what makes our farm special.
Reason #1: Over 170 5-star Facebook reviews
Reason #5: Enjoy the very popular recipe service customized to your box
Reason #8: Harvest from our U-Pick Garden
Reason #9: Visit the Angelic Organics Learning Center with educational programs for all
Reason #10: Watch “The Real Dirt on Farmer John”, a documentary about our farmer

We’d love to grow vegetables and herbs for you in 2017!
