Angelic Organics Farm Invites You and Your Members to Join Our Wellness Program
Angelic Organics is a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm 80 miles NW of Chicago. We have been growing organic vegetables and herbs for Chicagoland families since 1990. In 2019, we are excited to customize each vegetable share according to the unique preferences of every member of our farm share program. In addition, we also offer an organic fruit share in partnership with FruitShare. (The fruit share is not customizable.)
Imagine fresh, organic vegetables straight from our farm Angelic Organics in north central Illinois to your organization’s door, enlivening your employees or congregation, supporting their wellness, building community around recipe sharing and perhaps the sharing of meals.
We are now offering partnerships with companies and places of worship to provide customized Workplace Wellness and Worship Wellness Farm Shares. If you think your company or spiritual community might be a good fit for our program, please let your appropriate contact know about this opportunity. This would likely be your HR Director, Wellness Coordinator, Office Manager, Priest, Pastor, Rabbi or other suitable contact at your organization.
If you submit your application by Wednesday, June 12, 2019, and we approve your application, and if the quota of 25 farm share members is met by Monday, June 24, 2019, then we can have your site up and running in time for our deliveries that start in early July. If you submit your application after Wednesday, June 12, 2019, it’s not as likely (but still possible) that we can open your site for the 2019 season, but we would at least consider your site for the 2020 season.
It’s best to apply right away if you are interested. We currently have the capacity to add more farm share members and Wellness sites, but it’s possible that we will sell out quickly due to various new programs we have recently introduced.
The host of the monitored Workplace or Worship Wellness site will receive a complimentary weekly vegetable share for the duration of the 2019 season and following seasons–as much as a $960 value per season–for as long as the site is being hosted. Keep reading for more details. (Site hosts of existing unmonitored sites do not receive a complimentary share. We will be gradually phasing out many of our unmonitored sites.)
We will deliver fresh organic vegetables straight from our farm to your workplace or place of worship, customized to each farm share member’s preferences. This will make for healthier, happier and more content employees or congregation members.
Employees or spiritual practitioners will look forward to farm share delivery day and sharing recipes and cooking tips.
Our farm is certified organic and we also follow biodynamic practices to raise our vegetables and herbs. When your employees or congregation support our farm, they support stewardship of the earth.
We host two free Farm Field Days each season, in July and September, to which all farm share members are warmly invited.
As part of a Workplace or Worship Wellness partnership, your company or place of worship will serve as a weekly delivery site for our fresh, organic, local farm shares. This monitored site will be available only for your members (unless your organization chooses otherwise). Making healthy food choices is easier for your members when they can pick up their farm shares right where they work or worship.
It is a privilege to be of service…to encourage people to support locally grown organic vegetables.
~ Angelic Organics Site Host
Members of your workplace or congregation will sign up on our website and receive a 10% discount. Your organization doesn’t have to handle any financial arrangements. Aside from staff time to coordinate delivery logistics with the farm, there aren’t any expenses for a company or place of worship to host a site. (However, some companies opt to subsidize farm shares as part of a wellness initiative.)
You can learn much more about our customized farm share program at Receive Our Vegetables.
