The Elderberry Man
I grew up in a small Midwest farming town where the earth and its givings were what enabled us to make a living. Over the years, and there's been many of them, I've worked with the land.
Today, we are a family farm, focused on providing premium quality certified organic elderberries and cuttings to the health conscience public - wineries, conservation organizations, nutraceutical & cosmetic companies. With a true focus on doing what is right for the land and for our customers.
Over thousands of years the elderberries had been consumed in some manner. Cooked in several recipes you'll find the berries and the flowers. My wife's been making elderberry flower tea every Spring. Add some local honey and it makes for a truly relaxing experience.
I remember my parents having a bottle of elderberry wine, and my daughter has developed a pie recipe that will remind your of grandma's.
