In 1918 Morse's began hand making sauerkraut in Waldoboro Me. Since then two words "Krauts Ready" printed in tiny newspaper ads and hung on the door of the Kraut Haus have called countless Mainers to a fall tradition. Whether drawn by German roots common in the midcoast, or tradition spanning generations, Morse's Sauerkraut has been a part of autumn in Maine for nearly a century.Add Morse's Sauerkraut to your Waldoboro travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Waldoboro day trip website .
The only difference today is that this once “fall-only” treat is now available year-round. Our fresh 'kraut has no preservatives and is hand packed in its own brine straight from the same barrel in which the raw cabbage fermented to become this superfood. The unadulterated and non-pasteurized fresh 'kraut differs from all processed sauerkraut as the state of fermentation continues into the packaging of your individual order. Morse's kraut provides your palate with a range of flavors over its life span. In its early stages, young 'kraut will have a crispy, crunchy texture and the brine, a slightly sweet taste. As the 'kraut cures and undergoes aging, the brine becomes more acidic creating a tangy, zippier flavor. No matter when you choose to eat it, you'll find our fresh 'kraut bears no resemblance to its mushy processed substitute.
Our lacto-fermented kraut is alive & teaming with good bacteria and probiotics that are known to improve digestive health. Fresh kraut has been attributed to improved circulation and heart health. It stimulates the immune system, strengthens bones, reduces cholesterol & inflammation, improves vision & fights scurvy! It’s no wonder our regular customers are exceptionally youthful, sharp & have great guts!

Morse's Sauerkraut Reviews
A bit off the beaten path but it's worth the drive. Whether having lunch or shopping for delicious German snacks, we always leave happy more »
Great stop for shopping and good for lunch too. Unique German items but can get somewhat pricey thus the 4 stars. Out of the way which proves if you have quality items people will find you more »
We first trekked to Morse's 4 years ago after asking our server in Portland where they got the delicious pickles that were on our sandwich. We swung by and had lunch on our way to Acadia. What a treat! Fast forward 4 years and we are planning our route to include Morse's to stockpile pickles and sauerkraut.
We've been going to Maine for the last ten years and this year we found Morse's. My goodness, what a wonderful place. The lunch was excellent, and the selection from the deli was amazing. We stocked up with kraut, weisswurst, and knackwurst before heading home. It's definitely off the beaten track but worth the trip. Our gastronomic stops now include Morse's along with Miller's Lobster in Spruce Head, and Jess's market in Rockland.
