Elder Bros. Farms

BC Farm Fresh Elderberries

OUR STORY

As kids growing up in Hungary, we always had our grandmother’s tasty Elderflower syrup at the breakfast table. When we made Canada our new home we set out to find the perfect place to grow our own elderberries. With plenty of sun, wind, and rain we settled on Wycliffe in BC’s East Kootenay and got to work.

We now have over 2000 plants in five varieties: Marge, Bob Gordon, Ozark, Wyldewood, and Haschberg. Grandma would be proud!

FIRST HARVEST

Summer 2018 was our first harvest.  As we grow in the coming years we will supply fresh and ripe elderberries to all of BC for delicious wines, juices, jams, and of course, syrup!  We want to bring these healthful berries to as many Canadians as we can.

Elder Bros. Farm is conveniently located in the middle of Wycliffe, BC. Just 5 minutes from the Airport, 10 minutes from Cranbrook, and 15 minutes from Kimberley. We’re just off HWY 95A between Cranbrook and Kimberley, making it an easy stop when you are heading in or out of town.

On The 'Grow'!

Our aim is to become the largest independent elderberry farm in British Columbia.
