Most frequent questions and answers
We have 8 simple ingredients that we use to make our syrup, and you can actually read every single one of them: filtered water, whole elderberries, local raw honey, fresh squeezed lemon juice, all-natural fruit pectin, cinnamon sticks, organic ground ginger, organic cloves.
When we first started making elderberry syrup, we used the wild elderberries that we found, from the bushes around the perimeter of our acreage. We quickly ran out and then we began to source our elderberries from a wholesale supplier. We did plant elderberry bushes on our acreage in the Spring of 2020. Because of the high demand for our syrup, we will continue to source our elderberries from our supplier in order to make sure we can keep our supply of syrup in your hands.
In Fall of 2022, we were able to gather our first big harvest of elderberries planted and grown right here on our acreage. While this elderberry supply lasts, we offer a 12oz jar of Homegrown Immune Boosting Elderberry Syrup. This syrup is made using the exact same recipe as our original syrup, but it is made with 100% homegrown and harvested elderberries. This product is lighter in color and has a slightly more fruity (sweet) flavor. If you think our regular syrup is good, you will definitely want to give this a try. It’s better still!!!
- We modified our syrup recipe four different times, with an effort to get ALL four (and now five) of our children to genuinely love taking it. We think if we can get four (and now five) different kids to love the same product, chances are your kids will love it too! One product for the whole family!
- Our syrup has been tasted and loved in 49 states. Virtually all of our customers return to place another order!
- Our customer service is top notch! Almost all of our packages are shipped within 1 business day. Our communication is effective and thorough.

We are so grateful for each and every customer we have the chance to talk to, and we are encouraged by each review we receive.
- We truly believe in our product. We have personally witnessed the benefit of this syrup for every member of our family, in many different circumstances. Our entire family truly loves and enjoys taking this syrup every day.
