Hi everyone!!! We are glad you made it to our site :) If you are reading this, that means you are interested in learning more about the backstory of "JuJu's Products" and how we made it to where we are today, so sit back and enjoy the ride.
In the summer of '95, a little girl was born who was going to grow up wanting to be exactly like her father someday, which would make her a 5th generation farmer. Growing up, her father would always call her by the nickname of "JuJu" (hence where the company name stemmed from). In the fall of 2010, after years of trying to figure out the best crop to grow in order to diversify the farm, 17,000 Aronia berry plants were purchased and put into the ground! Aronia berries were chosen because they are native to the Midwest, they have extreme health benefits, have the HIGHEST level of antioxidants compared to any other fruit, and the were used by Native Americans as medicine as well as dye. Thus starting the journey of educating the public on a crop that most have never heard of.
JuJu's actually started in 2013-2014 while the owner, Julia, was in college. She started selling different products made with the berries (jelly and syrup) in order to build consumer awareness of what this berry actually was in order to generate more sales for the entire crop. However, people quickly started buying more product, asking for some without sugar, suggesting different products they would love to see made with Aronia, and so, what started out as a hobby to try and help the farm, turned into a whole new business in itself! In 2018, JuJu's Products, LLC was officially born.
JuJu's has expanded and is now offering multiple different Aronia berry products, and is planning on releasing new products within the next few months! In the summer of 2018, a greenhouse was constructed in order to propagate and sell Aronia berry plants to future growers or individuals who would just like a plant for their landscaping. We are happy to now have the opportunity and demand to sell products online, as well as still servicing local retailers!
We love hearing success stories from customers who have benefited from taking Aronia, so if you have a story you would like to share please feel free to email us!
