Describe your website.
Our website provides content relevant to our cooperative's members and those interested in our mission. We do so within a context of general information about the cultivation and health benefits of North American Elderberry (Sambucus canadensis). Our cooperative is made up of growers participating in the growth and development of elderberry cultivation and sale of elderberry products in the upper Midwest.
The Midwest Elderberry Cooperative is built upon the success of our individual growers. The role of the cooperative is one as an educator in horticultural practice and quality process, research coordinator, product developer, marketer and buyer of convenient resort. In other words, our growers decide when to sell their crop to the cooperative, which must, by necessity, often pay a lower price than what a buyer might receive in direct sales to customer/consumer.
Who is the target audience for your website?
USA health conscious consumers looking for sources of nutritionally dense foods, brewery and winery ingredients, food processing ingredients, perennial berry growers, and permaculture enthusiasts.
Millennials to Boomers.
What is the advantage of your website over others?
The most organized elderberry growers cooperative in North America. We only grow native elderberry selected from the wild: Sambucus nigra canadensis.
This website presents a broad collection of herbal traditions and academic research on the potential health and nutritional benefits of elderberries and elderflowers.
