Our Story

Old Mill Creek Country Store is a wonderful specialty grocery store offering organic and unique foods to local residents in Northern Illinois.  Roger Gerber and Beth Kaplan, local Antioch residents, have been the nation’s leading purveyors of exotic and organic meats since 1997 with their parent company Blackwing Quality Meats.  To meet Blackwing’s increasing local demand, Roger and Beth purchased a former GMC Truck dealership in Antioch, IL.  After an extensive remodel, Old Mill Creek Country Store opened in April of 2016.
