In Depth

We made our decision to open our Meadery in spring of 2014.  What an adventure it has been! 

From deciding to lease the property, getting all the local, state and federal licenses, working on the production area, gathering equipment, designing and buiding the tasting room to the grand opening, we have been hard at it.

Here are some of the pictures we have taken along the way.  Enjoy, and then come and visit to try some mead!
