    A great product. I was thankful to be able to order a bag when everyone else was out. So much more affordable to make your own elderberry syrup.

    WOWW!!!!!

    I am very impressed about the super fast delivery time frame. I ordered late at night on a Friday and by Monday morning boom!!! my package was already at my door steps. The berries are so clean without extra junk in them, I literally only found like 12 little(very small) sticks in the whole one pound bag so, I am very pleased. I cannot wait until I make my own elderberry syrup. Thank you so much, you have gain a new client here.

    Delivery time was fantastic from NY to TX and product was just as expected! We use this in our elderberry syrup recipe and now that we found The Mustard Seed we wouldn’t buy it anywhere else.
