Introduction to Mulberry Creek & Kramer Homestead
We are not offering a vegetable CSA for the 2017 season. You are welcome to contact us for produce availability, or stop by our booth at the Owensboro, KY Farmers Market.
Mulberry Creek CSA occupies some 10 acres of a 230 acre family farm in Spencer County, Indiana where we relocated in 2011 from SW Ohio. We grow sustainably produced heritage hogs and poultry, grass-fed cows, sheep, and goats, as well as mostly heirloom vegetables and fruits.
In the past, we have relied solely on community supported agriculture (hence the name CSA). We still offer some things through a CSA, primarily eggs, but mostly sell from the farm (call ahead, please) as well as from our booth at the Owensboro Regional Farmers Market during the market season. We also do a small amount of local delivery.
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 is Kramer Homestead?
Kramer Homestead is 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 hope other Kramer descendants will climb on this farm wagon soon.
