Coming Soon: Mother Moo Creamery

For those of you who love Mothercluck jams and jellies, we are proud to announce that our products will have a new home. 

Coming next month, Mothercluck Artisanal Jams, Jellies and Preserves will be MOO-VING to Mother Moo Creamery, 17 Kersting Court, in beautiful Sierra Madre (www.mothermoo.com).

Owner Karen Klemens will be scooping up her organic ice cream at Mother Moo, plus she will be selling her artisanal jams directly to the public. Home preservation classes and workshops also will be available in August -- just in time to can the 100 pounds of tomatoes in your garden!

Mother Moo and Mothercluck are proud to be united under one barn.

Come by and give a scream, because We All Scream for Ice Cream!

The Market is Back!

After a few months of rest and more importantly the birth of two beautiful, healthy goat doelings, the Altadena Urban Farmers Market is back, featuring locally grown fruits, vegetables and prepared foods.

The market also will be celebrating the lift of the citrus quarantine. The quarantine has hampered local growers' efforts to safely and legally transport backyard fruit. At the May market, patrons can expect plenty of fresh, organic fruit and vegetables for sale.

The market is set from 1 to 4 p.m., Sunday, May 29, at the Zane Grey Estate, 396 E. Mariposa St., Altadena. Proceeds from the market benefit the ongoing work of the nonprofit Arroyo Time Bank. Check out the ATB's link here.

Mothercluck's line of jams, jellies and preserves will be back along with a host of other regular vendors. We all will be so happy to see our regular customers again.

Truly, the Altadena Urban Farmers Market is one of the best markets in Los Angeles County. Stop by, shop and make sure to pet the goats, including babies Dorothy and Poet. You'll be glad you did!
