John Moody

New Society Publishers/Abby's Elderberry


The Moody family farms and homesteads on 35 acres in Kentucky. John Moody discovered more than a decade ago that his diet was killing him, with duodenal ulcers, seasonal allergies, and other health problems. So, the family began to transition to local foods and local food distribution. Eventually, he relocated his family to 35 acres of land to put his learning into practice. He currently serves as a founder and director of Steader (an online learning platform for homesteaders and farmers), and also speaks at many local, regional, and national events on food, farming, and nutrition. He has two books forthcoming to help growers and gardeners, one on soil and one on small-scale farm infrastructure.

John will be speaking at the North Carolina, Maryland and Pennsylvania Fairs.

Elderberry: So much more than syrups, supplements, and spirits!

Elderberry was once called "the medicine chest of the people," an ancient plant revered for its almost unlimited uses. While it has been making a comeback, most people only think of its role for colds and flus. They miss the beauty, versatility, and practical value of the elder. Take a journey through 10,000 years of history, myth, medicine, and more, and go beyond elderberry basics.
