Bulk Frozen Elderberries

Labor Day 2020 Update: MEC will NOT have enough berries to meet existing member and customer needs, so there are no berries available for any more orders until the 2021 harvest.

Harvest yields varied across the board for different reasons. Since most of our growers also make their own products that sold out last spring, they also required more of their harvest.

Contact Chris Patton first by email: info@midwest-elderberry.coop. or then by phone, preferably between 9am-5pm Central Time 612-418-4624.

Prices for certified organic frozen elderberries (2020) harvest:

  • $5.50/lb. plus freight for orders up to 500 lb. and drop to 
  • $5.25/lb. plus freight for orders over 500 lb. up to 1600 lb. 
  • Pricing over 1600 lb. begins at $5.00/lb

Sustainably grown native elderberries are priced 50 cents less per pound. MEC has relationships with a few frozen LTL carriers (delivered frozen on a pallet), which usually makes financial sense at 500lb. or more. Buyer must have a receiving dock for semis and a paved road to it. 

On all orders, priority is given to MEC member growers, past customers, small orders and date deposit is received.
(Orders are usually in 25 lb. increments due to our pack in 4 gal. food grade pails.) We will then send you a PayPal invoice (credit cards accepted) that allows for a partial payment equal to the deposit. This non-refundable deposit towards the full purchase & delivery is required for all purchase orders. Deposits will be refunded only if Nature or other causes beyond MEC’s control prevent fulfillment of your order.
