Aronia Berry Services of Northeast Iowa, LLC
Our journey into growing Aronia berries (also called the black chokeberry) started in early March 2011. While driving I was listening to a radio program called the ‘Big Show’. The ‘Big Show’ is an Ag radio show that was talking about this new berry that people were starting to raise with some substantial health benefits. I found the conversation interesting and thought we would research it on the internet but that night I couldn’t remember the name of the berry. Fortunately, the next week as I was driving and the berry was mentioned again on the ‘Big Show’ radio program. I pulled off the road to write down the name of the berry – ARONIA. The radio program had received so many inquiries about the plant and how to spell the name – ARONIA. And so began the idea for Aronia Berry Services of Northeast Iowa.
