About Us

Hello! We are Julie & David Herzog, and we own and operate Elderberry Herb Farm.

Elderberry Herb Farm is a small, family run herb farm located on 152 acres in beautiful Sharon Springs, NY in the foothills of the Catskill Mountain range. Once a thriving hops farm in the mid 1800’s, we are slowly restoring it back to its former glory. We have a 2-acre herb field where we grow non-GMO culinary and medicinal herbs cultivated using organic seed and organic methods without the use of chemicals or pesticides. Additionally, we have a 1-acre elderberry orchard, hop vines, and an old apple orchard. We also harvest herbs ethically and carefully from our fields, throughout the wild, and from the woodlands on our property.

Our products are created using our own recipes and many of our own herbs, without the use of artificial preservatives, flavors, colors or chemicals. We grow, harvest and dry many of the herbs we use in our products, and what we do not grow is purchased from carefully chosen organic sources. All of our products are made by us, and by hand with care to ensure the freshest and highest quality possible.

Working full time on the farm, Julie creates the recipes and formulas, grows, harvests, and processes the herbs. She designs and develops the packaging, handles the orders and any questions about herbs or our herbal products, programs and operates the website, and manages day-to-day operations.

David works part time on the farm. He designs, builds, creates, repairs and maintains the tools and equipment, sets up and installs greenhouse and field planting and irrigation systems, and performs the tractor operations.

Some of the products we offer include herbal teas, mulling spices, herbal seasonings, spice blends, rubs for meat and fish, salves, bath salts, bath teas, solid perfume, insect deterrent, dream pillows, hops pillows, tea cozies, catnip toys and scented soy wax pine cone fire-starters.

Whether you want to sooth achy muscles and joints, relax with a warm cup of tea, or are looking for the perfect gift, Elderberry Herb Farm offers original, hand-crafted products with the quality and style.
