Ten Reasons Why Angelic Organics is Special
Our Shareholders like us Read the many five star Yelp reviews by our shareholders. Also see shareholder reviews and many other shareholder posts on our Facebook page.
We have been raising vegetables for our CSA since 1990, 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.
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.
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.
Custom Menu Planning Shares 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.
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.
Over 30 Pick-up Locations. We know that many of our shareholders have busy lives so we offer over 30 locations, for your convenience, where you can pick up your share.
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.

I've renewed my CSA share with Angelic Organics for another season. Great food, nice variety, and it sure was fun to get vegetables into late fall. There are many options for share size and number of weeks, which could be very helpful to new shareholders. Try them!
