April 9, 2019 - Angelic Organics CSA program.
Angelic Organics in Caledonia, IL is a certified organic, biodynamic vegetable and herb farm, run by life-long farmer John Peterson, who grew up on this farm. Angelic Organics has been a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm since 1991, one of the first CSAs in the Midwest. Join Don and Denise Glasenapp as they discuss the rewards of Community Supported Agriculture and daily life at Angelic Organics. Learn about the challenges CSA farms are facing nationwide in light of the popularity of meal kit services and grocery delivery – and how Angelic Organics is adapting for the future by offering customized CSA shares. Don Glasenapp has served as coordinator of Angelic Organics pack volunteers for the past two seasons. His daughter Denise joined the staff last year as office assistant.
