What type(s) of elderberries are right for your farm?
Today on the third part of our special elderberry-centric miniseries, we’re hosting Terry Durham of River Hills Harvest. Located in the Hills of Hartsburg, Missouri, River Hills Harvest supports local farmers and processors. Their growers have committed to the health and wellbeing of their produce, their farms, and their communities. Every berry that is processed has reached peak ripeness to assure the highest delivery of the health promoting qualities for which elderberries have a historical reputation. Terry has been thriving in this business for quite some time, so if you’re interested in entering the elderberry market, or advancing your elderberry game, this is not one to skip!
