''Charles H. Morrill - namesake of the Nebraska Community Morrill, Morrill County, Nebraska and Morrill Hall....''
It began with Charles H. Morrill and two generations later when my father worked for the Morrills as a young boy and later farmed their land. I returned to my hometown with my husband John, after many years away to continue farming this land.
We chose to begin a new adventure and grow an alternative crop of the native North American shrub called Aronia Melanocarpa or the Black Chokeberry. We raise 10 acres of organic Aronia berries with the purpose of providing to our customers one of the highest anti-oxidant, healthiest berry readily available in our own USA. We named our farm Homestead Aronia to connect the history of Nebraska with the future of Aronia.
