Excellence in Elderberry
Family farmers producing incredible elderberry syrups to nourish and support your immune system.
FARMER OWNED AND OPERATED
We’re planting like crazy to bring you even more American black elderberry products. Every year, our fields and greenhouses get a little bit bigger. For Norm’s, farming truly is at the root of everything we do. It’s where we got our start, and it’s all-hands-on-deck as we work to maintain our crops throughout the season.
We focus on planting perennials (elderberries) that help strengthen the soil. Our farmers aren’t ripping and tearing our crops from the land every year. Elderberries are also great for erosion control and absorb a lot of carbon dioxide. We’ve helped take a wild plant and cultivated it into a crop that is good for our environment, our local economy, and for families across the nation. More than that, we pay our farmers a livable wage and work with our local extensions office to help put elderberry on the map as a specialty crop. We love this work and plan to set the bar higher with each passing year.
LETTING ELDERBERRY SHINE
Too many elderberry syrups are loaded with sugar. Many have more sugar than pancake syrup! Norm's believes that elderberry should be allowed to shine. They slow cook their syrup to perfection and bottle in dark glass jars to preserve and protect the elderberry in the same old fashioned way your grandmother did.
