We discovered this place only because we saw a road sign near the Foggy Ridge Cider place and decided we had to go because we were in the area. And the "area" feels like the middle of nowhere! But this is definitely a worthwhile stop!...More

My mother and I came up because we never tried mead. We were both pleasantly surprised at the options and loved the scenery. We had a lovely time chatting with Joanne and Steve and their dog, Mac, was very friendly. They, also, had love music...More

The main reason this is a 3-star review is simply because it's a long way to the meadery, and I'd suggest you go only if you are already in the area. Combine it with a trip to the Foggy Ridge Cidery and the Crooked Road...More

When you arrive, you will have gone down a long dirt road in the middle of nowhere. The meadery is in a ramshackle house, and you will likely be ominously thinking about Deliverance when you park. You will cautiously make your way up the steps,...More
