Had never heard of a meadery. Enjoyed the folks that worked there and the owner. The honey and mead tasting was lovely. The products to buy are tastefully displayed. Folks were helpful, but not pushy. An excellent place to visit & enjoy.

By all means taste the honey and the mead wine. A rainbow of flavors and you appreciate the wines more when you've tasted the various honey bases. Very reasonable prices on all of their products.

It is done by first come, first serve. Depends on visitors, the Staff likes to do several at a time.
