We have created a wonderful garden in a suitable place for our plants to feel they are “on their own territory “. We shaped them like bushes. We built drip irrigation.

We harvest the fruit in late August and September, selecting only the ripe ones.

We dry some of them in a chamber dryer up to 50 degrees , and use others to make our cold-pressed juices.

The legend of the elderberry :

In ancient times, when deities still walked among the people and blessed them, a magical plant appeared on earth – the Black Elderberry. Born of the goddess of healing herself, Edra, it was blessed with the power to protect and heal the bodies and souls of men.

One of his greatest gifts was the ability to strengthen the shield of the human body against the evil spirits of disease. Every autumn, when its blossoms turned into magical berries, the elder sent a loud call to the people to gather and prepare health elixirs from them. These elixirs bestowed strong protection against the malevolent forces of colds and flu, keeping people healthy during the cold and dark months.

The Black Elderberries themselves, dark as night and rich in the wisdom of the earth, were key to rejuvenation and restoration. Their juice, when properly prepared, served as an elixir that restored strength to exhausted warriors and quickly healed wounds.

But Edra warned the people: despite the Black Elderberry’s bountiful gifts, they were to be respected and used wisely. The untreated berries, leaves and bark carried a hidden danger that could harm the unprepared.

The legend of the Black Elder lives on today, reminding us of the eternal connection between man and nature, and of the mysterious powers that can be unlocked with respect and understanding.
