From a Shareholder
We’ve had a CSA [share] at Angelic Organics for 7 or 8 years and we just want to say how much we appreciate everything you do, everything we get from you, and our connection to “our” farm. Our produce is always amazing and it’s a treat to pick it up every week. Thank you.
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: 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

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.
Farmer John Peterson describes why you’ll love our Community Supported Agriculture Program, as shareholders harvest beans from the Angelic Organics U-Pick garden at our farm open house.
