OUR STORY

Our story begins over 100 years ago in 1899 with the Buehler family farm on the Spring River in Mount Vernon, Missouri in the heart of the Ozarks.

 

 

Our family began with a small dairy production and grew traditional row crops. After four generations of Buehlers, (we) David and Ann made the decision to diversify our crop base with a focus on elderberries and other therapeutic crops such as cannabis (hemp). Our farm is now certified organic and have launched our next chapter as Elder Farms. We strive to grow and produce the highest quality plant-based wellness products to empower the body to heal and flourish.

Elder Farms is one of the leading sources of American Elderberry in the United States. Elderberry has been used for thousands of years as a natural remedy for its aid with the immune system and upper respiratory conditions. In recent years, elderberry has held true to its historical use as studies have proven its efficacy. Our all-natural, American-grown elderberry products are loaded with vitamins, potassium, iron, zinc, and powerful antioxidants called anthocyanins. We believe in using 100% American Elderberry and all certified organic ingredients in our products to provide the best possible value for our customers and to make a positive impact on the environment and people’s health.

According to estimates, roughly 99% of elderberry products found in the marketplace here in America contain imported elderberry from Europe. This is elderberry that has been dried down and/or powderized, and normally water or vegetable glycerin has been added to constitute a ‘syrup’ base. European elderberry is known as Sambucus nigra and has been used primarily because of a lack of commercialized elderberry here in America. Within the last 20 or so years, there have been major efforts to establish a commercialized elderberry industry here in America by setting up farmers to grow our native American black elderberry, or Sambucus canadensis. We all know that supporting local business is vital for the health of our local economy here at home, but what if the American elderberry is also a better fit for making into products than the European counterpart that is imported? Well, let us dive into some of the research that we have available to us!

 

For starters, elderberry has been shown to be a rich source of antioxidants, vitamin C, zinc, copper, and many other minerals. Elderberry is also one of the richest sources of bioflavonoids called anthocyanins, which are the nutrients that give elderberry its dark purple/black color. Studies have shown that anthocyanins may help with a variety of health issues, from relieving oxidative stress, combatting cancer, fighting inflammation, balancing blood sugar levels, and supporting a healthy immune response. Anthocyanins are one of the major components of why elderberry is so healthy for you, and elderberry is one of the richest sources of anthocyanins.

FAQs

Elderberry is a superfruit that is loaded with antioxidants and phytochemicals called anthocyanins which help to stimulate the immune system and protect cell health throughout the body. Elderberry is one of the richest sources of anthocyanins, so a little bit goes a long way when taking every day!

American Elderberry is the staple behind all of our wellness products, but we aren’t willing to stop there. We hand pick each of our certified organic ingredients to ensure that our products are maximized with benefits for your health and wellness. And when we say 100% American Elderberry, we mean it! No imports or dried elderberry in anything we produce. All of our elderberry is grown certified organic here on our family farm in Southwest Missouri and by our small network of American farmers here at home who share our common values of being good stewards of the land and growing the best possible crop to offer our customers. 

We also third-party batch test all of our products, including our Hemp CBD products. So you know the products you are sourcing from us for your family are safe, consistent, and transparent every time.

We like to admit anything American is the best, but the truth of the matter is, American elderberry has the studies to back it as the better fit for value added products such as our Elderberry Syrup products. 

For one, there are 4 additional anthocyanins identified in the American variety (sambucus canadensis) that are not found in the European variety (Sambucus nigra). 


One study also found that the anthocyanins in the American variety are acylated, which basically means they are unusually resistant to breaking down during processing or heating. The elderberry anthocyanins in the European varieties have been found to break down over periods of time after processing, so the purple color of them will eventually turn to brown. The color of the berries is what makes them so beneficial to our health, so a stronger purple is a stronger berry!


Finally, since European elderberries have to be imported, this means that they go through a lengthy importation process and will not even hit our shores until roughly a year after they have been harvested. To keep them safe over this period of time, they must be dried and/or powdered, so water must be added to create a base for an elderberry syrup product.

Yes, we are proud to claim that we are in the less than 1% of all farms in the USA that have met the rigorous standards to be certified organic. We choose to use all certified organic ingredients in our products, and will soon have our manufacturing facility certified organic as well. So be on the lookout for the USDA Organic logo on our products soon!

Our Elderberry Immune Syrup with Aronia contains 6,000mg of elderberry per tbsp (2,000mg per tsp)

Our Elderberry Wellness Syrup (160mg CBD) contains 12,000mg of elderberry per tbsp (4,000mg per tsp)

Our elderberry syrups contain no processed or refined sugars. Raw honey is the only sweetener and adds 2g of natural sugar per tsp.

All products contain a two year shelf-life unopened. Our elderberry syrups once opened do need to stay refrigerated and will stay good for up to two months. For our raw honey products, be sure to keep them at room temperature. You’ll find that they may crystallize if kept below room temperature. Simply warm to reliquefy by placing near a warm temperature.

At Elder Farms, we are dedicated to providing exceptional customer service, along with the highest quality elderberry wellness products. If for any reason you are unsatisfied with your purchase, we will make it right within 30 days of your purchase. Take a picture of any damaged goods and contact us at hello@elderfarms.com for a replacement or refund. Put your order number in the subject line.

 All sales on Hemp CBD products are final.

We use a couple of different kinds of Hemp Extracts in our products. So let’s break this down. Full-Spectrum Hemp Extract is used in our Elderflower Hemp Honey and Spring River Hemp Tinctures. Full Spectrum does contain the legal limit of <.3% THC, and as such can show up on a urinary analysis. Although the chances of showing up on a drug test are small, we recommend to stray away if this is a concern for you.

 

Broad-Spectrum Hemp Extract is used in our Elderberry Wellness Syrup/Shots, as well as our Complete Body Defense Tinctures. Broad-Spectrum Hemp Extract has the trace amount of THC filtered out and is generally considered safe for urinary analysis. All of our hemp extract is third party batch tested for purity, potency, and transparency. If you still have concerns, you should talk with your doctor.

Yes! We’re happy to work with brick and mortar stores, and those with a vested interest in providing wellness solutions to their patients. We do not allow third party resellers to sell our products on Amazon.

CBD PRODUCT FAQs

CBD is a cannabinoid produced naturally in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoid refers to the class of plant compounds primarily found in the cannabis plant. Cannabis can be industrial hemp or medical marijuana. CBD-rich hemp extract sourced from industrial hemp is legal in all 50 states. CBD has been shown to have antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, anti-seizure, and even anti-cancer properties. There are over a hundred known cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, most of which are found in only trace amounts. CBD is not psychotropic, or does not produce a ‘high.’ Users report feelings of reduced stress, better sleep, less pain/inflammation, and much more.

This is not a simple answer as CBD works in our bodies in various ways, most of which are still being studied. Our bodies are extraordinary machines and uses various systems to communicate with each other when things aren’t in perfect harmony. Our bodies always want to be in balance, for example: maintaining a stable body temperature, our cardiovascular system maintaining a healthy blood pressure, our immune system fighting off disease and infection, etc.

Researchers originally trying to figure out how THC interacts in the human body discovered a biochemical communication system that is present in all systems of the human bodies. This system was named the endocannabinoid system. Endo- meaning internal, and cannabinoid referring to the class of compounds found in the cannabis plant. They found that cannabinoids attach themselves and lock onto cannabinoid receptors that are found in all systems of the body. These receptors are called CB1 and CB2. These receptors signal parts of the body that aren’t acting in homeostasis and work to synthesize endocannabinoids to naturally help the imbalance. Our bodies naturally produce endocannabinoids whether we have ever ingested cannabis or not, but science is showing that as age and diet related stressors take tolls on our bodies, we naturally produce less endocannabinoids over time, which is called endocannabinoid deficiency syndrome.

The good news is that a regular dose of CBD-rich hemp extract helps to balance the body’s naturally occurring endogenous cannabinoids and helps to keep the body in homeostasis. Much research is still to be done on CBD and how it fully interacts with our bodies and our endocannabinoid system. We encourage you to do your own research and read the thousands of different studies and articles on CBD and make the decision for yourself!

www.projectCBD.org is a great resource that promotes the international leading research and clinical studies on all things cannabis and cannabinoids. They are publicly funded, non-biased, and do not endorse any particular brands.

Industrial hemp and Medical cannabis are genetically the same plant originating from cannabis sativa L, but are vastly different in various ways.

Industrial hemp by legal definition is a cannabis plant with a tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) level of 0.3% or less. Industrial hemp is primarily made up of CBD and trace amounts of over 85 different cannabinoids. Any strain of cannabis with THC levels higher than 0.3%, by legal definition, is considered medical cannabis. The THC content of medical cannabis is typically in the 10-30% range and can have zero CBD, some CBD, or mostly CBD. There are thousands of different strains of cannabis with vastly different cannabinoid profiles. Strains can be bred for selective traits based on the profile and experience wanted by the farmer/user

We currently source our hemp extract from organic hemp farms in Massachusetts and our hemp is 100% Farm Bill Compliant.

We would love to say that we are growing our own industrial hemp currently as granted by the Missouri State Constitution and the 2018 Farm Bill, but the Missouri Department of Agriculture needs to stop holding their feet and allow Missouri farmers to grow without restriction. Hemp is now federally legal and many states have had hemp programs in place since 2014. We encourage you to write your representatives and tell them to allow Missouri farmers to commercially grow hemp without restrictions and to allow farmers to plant the 2019 growing season.

We use a proprietary extraction process that isolates each individual cannabinoid and terpenoid using a supercritical CO2 extraction. The individual compounds are added back together, but without THC. This results in a THC-Free extraction while still maintaining 99.9% all of the other benefits of a Full-Spectrum Extract. You and your family can be confident and without worries. We have third party tests with each batch to ensure quality.

 
If you have ever heard of the consumption of poppy seeds leading to a positive drug test for opioids, the consumption of certain hemp products may lead to a positive drug test for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is inherently present in hemp in trace amounts. The legal limit of THC in hemp is 0.3%. Our broad spectrum hemp extract contains less than four-hundredths of a percent THC content. ( The science behind the conversion of certain cannabinoids like CBD when consumed, to cannabinoids like THC is not yet fully understood. The risk is incredibly low, but with factors such as individual biochemistry and the possibility of cannabinoids converting over time, we strongly suggest consulting your health care provider before consuming any hemp products if you are subject to drug testing.
 

Yes, we do! Our hemp is tested multiple times at all points of production to ensure safety, consistency, and transparency. We use third party testing with each batch and you can review the results here.
