Four years ago Hannah and Brandon Setzer first experienced the personal health benefits of elderberry syrup. Since Hannah is immunocompromised and proactive about improving her own health, she was excited about the immune boosting properties of the syrup. Since the Setzers were already making healthy products at home like kombucha, it made sense to make their own elderberry syrup!
Earlier this year they started Hannah’s Handcrafted to sell their 8 and 16 oz elderberry syrups. Now they hear from clients about their own health benefits, such as alleviating allergies and reducing the symptoms and duration of the common cold and flu. Creative uses for this versatile syrup include using it in smoothies and juices, topping yogurt and pancakes, and even putting it in mixed drinks. Most, including Hannah, enjoy the taste of the syrup on its own and numerous families report it’s kid-approved!
Hannah and Brandon are grateful to build a community of families passionate about elderberry syrup. They prioritize their clients’ health, happiness and satisfaction. They are proud to consistently deliver a product with simple, clean ingredients that is licensed by the Department of Agriculture. They use raw honey from Nelson County and elderberries from a co-op while they pursue their hopes and dreams of obtaining farmland to grow their own!
