Elderberry production is expanding throughout the Midwest.
“The elderberry is a new crop to grow in the Midwest. Now, we have several hundred people that are growing elderberries throughout the region and even on both coasts all over the country. We have been training growers for the last ten years and building it into an American industry.”
Terry Durham, owner of River Hills Harvest in Hartsburg, Missouri, says there are benefits to domestically grown elderberries.
