The Bailey Farm operated as an organic farm in Freeport, specializing in the highest antioxidant elderberries available in Maine.
In its peak years, the farm yielded 740 lbs. of elderberries from 280 organic elder babies planted on just one third of an acre.
Stories and information about health and healing were shared back and forth between farmer and customers who bought elderberries, aronia berries, elderberry cuttings, plants and elderflowers. It was a shared journey for which I am forever grateful. Many devoted health-conscious people assisted me, and visited the farm.
Although the farm is no longer open for business, my mission remains. I am delighted to be an advocate for everything elderberry --- a resource for propagating, growing and using elderberry as an immunity-boosting medicine, as well as for expanding your culinary repertoire.
