WE ARE MOVING!
Mulberry Creek CSA is relocating to Sagadahoc County, Maine, in late August 2018.
We will be at the Owensboro Regional Farmers Market for as long as we can, current egg and herdshare members will be reimbursed for the weeks paid that fall after our move. We are willing to reimburse in money or in the equivalent value in meat products, as available.
Direct from the farm purchases will be available until the move by appointment.
Introduction to Mulberry Creek
We are not currently offering any CSA Shares, Egg shares, or Herdshares. You are welcome to contact us for produce, meat, and egg availability, or stop by our booth at the Owensboro, KY Farmers Market.
Mulberry Creek CSA is relocating from Spencer County, Indiana, to Sagadahoc County, Maine.
We were in Spencer County from 2011 through 2018 on 10 acres of a 230 acre family farm where we relocated from SW Ohio. No matter where we are, we grow sustainably produced heritage poultry, 100% grass-fed cows, sheep, and goats, as well as mostly heirloom vegetables and fruits, and have had pasture and range raised heritage hogs and meat rabbits, too.
In the past, we have relied solely on community supported agriculture (hence the name CSA) and with our move to Maine we hope to return to this form of partnership while also selling from the farm (call ahead, please) and from our booth at area farmers markets and other retail locations during the market season.
Operating since 2009, Mulberry Creek CSA is committed to connecting consumers to their local food sources and producers. We started our CSA wanting people to meet the people that use best sustainable practices to grow their food. We sure are glad folks are finally realizing the sexiness of supporting local farms. We like knowing where our food comes from and we like growing food. We like knowing where our food goes. We like answering your questions, meeting your families, and watching your faces light up at the sight of your fresh produce every week.

What was Kramer Homestead?
Kramer Homestead was an experimental partnership of farm families all of whom descend from Fredrik and Kathrine Kramer, pioneer homesteaders in Spencer County. Over 16 decades after Fredrick and Kathrine put the first hoe in the ground, we represent several different descendants, each with our own specialties. We had hoped other Kramer descendants would climb on this farm wagon, but have determined that we were the only ones interested. Kramer Homestead will no longer be a part of our marketing.
Animals and Animal Products
We raise (biggest to smallest):
Cows: dairy cows give us milk (and cheese and butter) and the steers give us beef;
Goats: dairy goat does give us milk (and cheese) and the wethers give us chevon (goat meat);
Sheep: hair sheep give us lamb and mutton; Shetlands give us wool and lamb;
Hogs: give us pork (and bacon!);
Rabbits: give us meat (the rabbitry is currently not in production);
Turkeys, Geese, Ducks: give us meat and sometimes eggs;
Chickens: give us eggs and meat;
Honeybees: make excellent wildflower honey and polinate our plants!
Even though it's totally lame to post "coming soon" on a website, we ask your patience as we go through this transition period. It will take quite a bit of time to get the whole site reworked for our new location, not to mention just flat out updating, something there just hasn't been time for. Add into that packing, sorting, hauling, and the whole host of other activities necessary in planning a move, add to that moving an entire farm 1200 miles, and that's our excuse for taking a while to get everything updated. Your best bet would be to shoot us an email and we'll do our best to answer your question, address your concern, change that part of the site, or whatever as soon/well as we can.
It has been great meeting and working with the many wonderful folks of the Ohio River Valley/Tri-State in the ten years we've been here. We'll miss you ... we will have guest space in Maine, just call ahead! :)
