… to Hylde’s Garden, an elderberry orchard nestled in the heart of our small farm in northeast Iowa.

We offer dried elderberries, frozen elderberries, and dried elderflower for use in food, brewing, cosmetics, and other products.

We also offer hardwood stem cuttings from our elder plants for folks who want to grow their own elder plants.

Availability of our products is seasonal.

Enjoy your visit!

Fall 2023 update

Elderflower — All of this year’s elderflower crop has been spoken for. Most is going to an Iowa cidery that makes a dry apple cider delicately flavored with elderflowers.

We plan to pick and dry more elderflower in 2024. Let us know if you would like to be added to our list of people interested in purchasing our fragrant elderflower.

Elderberries — We have plenty of frozen berries for sale as I write this. Although Ranch and Bob Gordon had reduced yields from the dry weather in mid-to-late summer, the Nova and York elder plants produced well. The net result was a bumper crop for our orchard.
