We are organic farmers from central Iowa and have specialized in growing and consulting for Aronia Berries. We have 13 acres of the Aronia as well as organic hazelnuts, corn and soybeans, and a variety of other seedings that vary with the seasons.
Boone County Organics began as an organic fertility consulting company, primarily for farmers raising food crops. Aronia Growers are the focal point of the business. With 13 acres of Aronia Berries we decided to go into Value-Adding to diversify our operation. We previously had a State Inspected Bakery on the farm, so the bakery was closed and transitioned into State Inspected, FDA Compliant, Organic Certified Food Processing.
If you've tried Aronia Berries you'll know that the flavor can be challenging. Our berries do not have that problem since as organic fertility consultants, we have been able to grow sweeter and more nutritious berries. When compared to conventional Aronia, our berries have 3 times the Vitamin A and 4 times the Iron.
