Clear Creek Organic Farms 

Spalding, Nebraska

Producing healthy foods for healthy families.

Clear Creek Organic Farms is located near the village of Spalding (Greeley County) – 70 miles north of Grand Island. Bob and Kristine Bernt, along with their 12 children have lived and farmed this land for decades – the farm has been in the Bernt family for over 125 years. The beautiful rolling hills of the farm contain the joining place of the Clear Creek and Cedar River. They believe healthy vibrant soils, produce healthy food. Diversity in the farm has not only contributed to the health of their soils, it has allowed several of the Bernt's adult children to stay and work on the farm.

The family grows produce, row crops, milks cows, tends a laying flock, and raises pastured hogs, chickens, and ducks. The Bernt’s have found success in adding value to the raw products from their farm:

  • An on-farm commercial kitchen allows them to process the bounty of their vegetable and fruit harvests – from cut & frozen vegetables, to jams.
  • Their grassfed milk (A2) and cream is turned into ice creams (you gotta try the chocolate/walnut!), butter, and many flavors of cheddar based cheeses.
  • They sell soy-free pork, broilers, ducks and grassfed beef.

Clear Creek Organic Farms is active in local food policy and farmer advocacy in their community, and across the state. Transparency and connection are important to the Bernts - they host farm tours and field days every summer. Follow along on their facebook page to receive notifications of their tours and events! Clear Creek Organic Farms products can be purchased directly through the farm, at the Nebraska Food Coop, and at various grocers and retail stores such as Leon’s (Lincoln) and Market23 (Columbus). The best way to get in touch is to call or contact via facebook!
