Our Story

I started making elderberry syrup the winter of 2018. We were about to have a newborn and my son was 2...and I needed something to help protect us from al the winter germs. So I made batch after batch, perfecting this and that. And at the same time, kept the ingredients simple - only organic elderberries and raw local wildflower honey. No herbs, spices, or additives like cane sugar.

Then from out of my kitchen we went commercial and became the first state licensed elderberry product in the state of Maryland in 2019. In 2020, we planted native elderberry plants and our farm became the largest known elderberry grower in the state.


We moved our farm back to our home state of South Carolina in 2023 and build our forever homestead. Our elderberries moved with us. We are so grateful to be able to provide the healing powers of simple naturally & organically grown ingredients.


So out of a simple need to help my family, Mama Bears Elderberries was born. And I hope it can help yours too- we want to share the love! 💜🐻

Ingredient Commitment


We only use organic elderberries - the best at that. Our raw honey is sourced from local beekeepers. We only choose high quality wildflower honey, which is superior to the common clover and alfalfa honeys medicinally.

We source certified organic black aronia from Chester River Aronia located on the beautiful Eastern Shore of Maryland and hand harvest the berries each summer. In the Fall, we harvest red aronia from Honeys Harvest Farm in Lothian, Maryland. 

Wild bilberries are sourced from Northwest Wild Foods and we use certified organic goji for the Elderberry Gold.

This winning combination of premium ingredients is what makes Mama Bears stand out from the rest. Once you try our syrup, you'll see!

In addition to great things inside the bottle, we use recycled paper labels, glass bottles made in the USA, source packaging from local companies and our product is plastic-free!
