Founded in 2015, Floating O Farms released their first product, Elderberry Wellness Syrup, in February of 2018. Jason and Dani Morris’ family has been wild harvesting and raising Texas elderberry plants since the early 1990's.
The obsession with elderberries began when Jason’s mother, Charlotte, came across this versatile plant and explored its beneficial uses while she was researching the family’s Cherokee heritage. Charlotte has made elderberry syrup for her immediate family for decades, which only heightened their determination to find a way to share her recipes with others.
