About Us / Creme de la Crop, USDA Organic History: Creme de la Crop is the area's first full scale certified organic food production farm, located in Valparaiso, Indiana, about one hour from Chicago. This organization was founded in 2003 by Leann Landgrebe Pelzel, on her family's 4th generation-run property. Leann and husband, Chef Jason Pelzel, have a hands-on, educational program, where they inspire future farmers through an apprentice program. Creme de la Crop specializes in growing heirloom varieties, known for excellent flavor, and will raise a small number of heritage egg laying chickens this season. Get connected to our history by taking a tour and help preserve agricultural farmland by becoming a member of our CSA Share Program.
