Dr. Catie Morse, a naturopathic physician, formulator, and founder of Dr. Appleseed’s Elderberry Extracts, hand harvests, with a group of close friends, Elderberries from pristine Pacific North West wild forests.
She takes the best of the old ways and overlays techniques and tools from modern food chemistry to ensure reproducibility and quality assurance in every batch.
Dr. Catie, and her team work in an organic, low chemical kitchen to produce and fill each jar by hand. Her process delivers the highest quantity possible of a special type of antioxidant.
The reason she can assure her product is the highest quality and most potent elderberry extract available is that she is present at every step of the process.
To ensure sustainability and give back to the land, Catie and her team make sure to leave plenty of berries behind for the birds and the bears. In addition, they return to the wild and plant more elderberry bushes. You can see this process highlighted in the infographic, The Journey of the Elderberry.
Dr. Appleseed's Elderberry Extract is made with native and edible west coast wild Elderberries, with no added sugar, alcohol or other additives. A percentage of proceeds go towards more native plant installations.
