Ten Reasons Why Angelic Organics is Special
1. Our Shareholders like us
See shareholder reviews and many other shareholder posts on our Facebook page.
2. We have been Raising Vegetables for our CSA since 1991, one of the first CSAs in the Midwest
We have soil, infrastructure, equipment, managers and crew to grow great crops, year after year. Many of our employees have been with us over 10, even 20 years. And then there’s Farmer John, who’s been farming since 1957, when he started taking care of the chickens here.
3. We are Fortified Against Drought and Heat
Angelic Organics has two deep wells, powerful irrigation systems, and ample refrigeration space. Because of this and our stellar crew, we had a fabulous year in 2012, a year of record drought and heat. In 2013 and 2014 in spite of extensive spring flooding, our excellent crew and great lineup of equipment got the crops in on time, and we packed boxes full from the first week of the season through the last.
4. Besides being Certified Organic, we grow Biodynamically
Beyond meeting the requirements of farming organically, we are committed to nurturing soils and plants to extraordinary health! In 1993, this goal led us to adopt Biodynamic farming practices, which enhance both the substance and the forces in food. Learn more about our Biodynamic program.
5. Custom Menu Planning
Shares will now include a free custom menu planning service through our partnership with Local Thyme. The menus are designed to use every item in your box along with a weekly shopping list of all the items needed to cook your CSA produce. Omnivore, vegetarian and gluten-free menu plans are all included.
6. Value of the Share
Eat healthy for less. 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.
7. Over 40 Pick-up Locations and Home Delivery
We know that many of our shareholders have busy lives so we offer over 40 locations, for your convenience, where you can pick up your share. We also offer home delivery for an added cost. Learn more about our delivery options here.
8. Harvest from our U-Pick Garden
We realize that many people, especially children, love to get out and harvest their own vegetables, herbs and flowers. Therefore we also grow a U-Pick garden here on the farm so our shareholders can experience harvesting them on their own.
9. Angelic Organics Learning Center
The Angelic Organics Learning Center empowers people to create sustainable communities of soils, plants, animals and people through educational, creative, and experiential programs. It’s a tremendous educational resource headquartered at Angelic Organics, offering myriad programs that connect people to the earth and one another.
10. “The Real Dirt on Farmer John”, a Feature Film about Angelic Organics
“The Real Dirt on Farmer John” is a haunting odyssey which documents over 50 years of Farmer John’s farm and his life. The film has been seen by millions in theaters and on television throughout the world, and has won 31 festival awards. Get to know your farm and your farmer from the comfort of your home via Netflix or Amazon.
