We only grow native elderberries!
The current year elder flower and berry harvests were below normal in 2018, and remaining inventory is very limited. Our current inventory was grown in transition towards organic certification. We do not have any certified organic elder berries or flowers to sell in any form at this time until July 2019 flower harvest and September 2019 berry harvest. Beginning July 2019, we will post how to pre-order that year’s harvest. MEC dries berries only when there is excess inventory over the demand for bulk frozen, destemmed & cleaned berries packed 25 lb. in 4 gal. food grade pails.
