Our story begins a little over 100 years ago in 1899 with the start of the Buehler family farm in Mount Vernon, MO off the Spring River in the Heart of the Ozarks. Our family has always farmed what our community has needed over the years. We began with a small dairy production and grew traditional row crops such as corn, wheat, hay, and soybeans.
After four generations of Buehlers, David and Ann Buehler made the decision to end mono-cropping grains and beans. After seeing family suffer from various health issues, we knew we had reached a point where the same old farming practices just wouldn't cut it anymore. We have always had a love for the elderberry plant from tales of our elders using it medicinally. Seeing the healing powers of extracts of cannabis (hemp), along with the incredible environmental benefits made our farming transition a no-brainer. Now, as a Missouri Century Farm, we have decided to grow our next chapter as Elder Farms to honor the ancient wisdom of plant medicines and to craft these ancient ingredients for modern times.
We can only think about how much has changed in our world since our family farm first began. We appreciate your support and hope you and your family find relief in our plant powered products, just like we have.
