Elderberry Mania

I wanted to share with you photos from this year's Foire Agro-Alimentaire (Agriculture and Food Fair) held at Jacinthe Demarais and Sylvain Mercier's elderberry orchard in St. Bernard de Lacolle, Quebec.  Who would have thought that introducing our longtime friends to elderberry,  picked from our very own tree in our backyard, and sharing my husband's original orange vermouth elderberry jelly would excuse the pun, "bear such fruit"?  They project having over 15,000 trees in their orchard by 2011.  Jacinthe with her scientific background in the health field, and Sylvain with his entrepreneurial business skills, have built a flourishing and well respected business, producing quality elderberry food products and homeopathic medicines. Visit their official web site at  http://www.suro.ca  to learn more about their products and view photos of their orchard.
