Oklahoma has been blessed with a wonderful diversity of Elderberry varieties, with plants adapted to a wide range of soil types and pH ranges. In addition, there are significant differences in natural sugar content and berry size. Decades of university field trials confirm that Oklahoma is an epicenter for genetic diversity in elderberries. We stock over ten varieties of commercial production Elderberries and most are native to Oklahoma. We fertilize with natural products when possible and use no pesticides. We’re quite fond of our bees and the elderflower honey they produce!
Elderberries are one of the few food plants that have not been hybridized or genetically modified into an unrecognizable form. Our seven years of collection and study of native varieties has proven one sure thing; we’ve barely scratched the surface on the biodiversity of this plant. 360 Farms is currently collaborating with a leading research facility to further study these native plants. Our locally sourced, native stock is propagated from genetically superior plants, chosen for fruit production and hardiness.
Soil type and pH play a huge role in choosing the best Elderberry variety for you. Please call or email to order nursery stock. After discussing your climate and soil conditions, we’ll recommend the best varieties to meet your needs. Our goal is happy, healthy plants and customers. We can supply plants for backyard gardeners, commercial orchard production, agricultural use (erosion control and riparian buffers), or conservation (development and/or restoration of wildlife habitat).
The 2017 sale of cuttings was a great success and we’ll continue to offer this option to our customers. Field cuttings will ship after 01/15/18 and sale will continue until our stock is depleted. Un-rooted cuttings are an economical way to establish large plantings but it should be noted that fruit production will be delayed until root mass is established, usually 2-3 years.
360 Farms is proud to offer the highest quality elderberry nursery stock available today. Our business has grown substantially and we ship our plants all across the U.S..
