HARBIN HOLLOW LOCAL MARKET NOW OPEN! 809 North Broadway, Portland, TN

You Never Know Until You Try


You never know if you don't try, right?

It has been just over two months since I sold my first bottle of elderberry syrup. I made a post on my personal FB page on Dec 8 sharing my recipe with a picture of the multiple jars I made for my family. Since then, I've bottled and sold over 22 gallons out of my home.

On Friday, we paid the deposit to a co-packer to have our first 40 gallon batch of elderberry syrup handcrafted in an FDA inspected facility. I'm still sourcing the same quality ingredients including #localhoney from here in Portland, TN. Their process mimics mine only multiplied by 40. The new labels are almost done and will include a bar code with ISBN # and a nutrition panel. I'm most excited about becoming one of the Pick TN Products!

The moral of the story is GO FOR IT. I'm scared, anxious, afraid of failing, but I know I'd be way more upset if I didn't give it my best shot. I'm full of gratitude for all of you who have already purchased our products and liked/shared our journey on social media. WE CAN DO HARD THINGS! But you have to take that first step...
