Angelic Organics, located in Caledonia, Illinois, is one of the oldest[1] and currently the largest[2] community-supported agriculture (CSA) farm in the United States. The farm has grown produce in accordance with biodynamic principles since 1990 and has operated as a CSA since 1993. Participating subscribers, known as shareholders, receive a weekly 5/9 bushel box of fresh vegetables and herbs delivered to over 20 Chicago area sites. They also offer a number of classes, workshops, and farmer training programs.[3]

Angelic Organics farm was featured in the award winning documentary film The Real Dirt on Farmer John.[4]
