The base of our shrubs is whole, high quality fruit. After that, all of our shrubs use raw knapweed honey from Wustner Brothers in Missoula, whose hives are located in the gorgeous Sapphire Mountains of Montana. From there, their honeybees are free to feed on wildflowers, knapweed, and other wild plants. Wustner Brothers Honey is raw and unfiltered, which means it holds a myriad of nutritional value that is often extracted with the filtering process.
Our Flathead Cherry shrub is made from cherries grown by The Orchard at Flathead Lake. The stunning orchard overlooks the lake’s East Shore and is a small generational family producer. Children run between the trees and eat from the branches at The Orchard at Flathead Lake, so the owners are determined to practice organic and risk free harvesting methods.
What do you think of when you picture a ginger plant? Most of us think of a warm tropical climate. But did you know that the landscape of Montana is so diverse, there are some areas where the water spills from the ground at 87 degrees? Ginger grows well in very select areas of Montana. Deluge Farm is the only commercial grower of ginger in Montana, and we buy all of the magical stuff.
Huckleberry may be the most distinctive of all Montana flavors. The legendary berry of the American Pacific Northwest, huckleberries have never been successfully cultivated, and therefore has come to represent wild alpine areas and is one of Montana’s most unique flavor profiles.
