first crop. August 2015.

Currently 2.5 acres of elderberries are under cultivation, seven cultivars including the original & named nursery for Lewis Hill’s two cultivars Coomer and Berry Hill. The elderberries will be used by Caledonia Spirits to make their elderberry cordial. Lewis Hill’s home and nursery is less than a mile away from this land, where he planned to cultivate elderberries on a commercial basis.
