Meadmaker Bob Liptrot has kept bees since the age of 6 and has been making mead for over 35 years. Come taste our award winning meads and honey.

A great stop to learn everything you want to discover about MEAD, taste this old beverage and purchase a few bottles to enjoy with friends.

We decided to head to Tugwell prior to a cross country trip with the plan to purchase some mead for a wedding that did not happen. Although it was a very quiet, drizzly day we were welcomed to try out some of the mead opened for tastings in the cozy shop after we had taken in some of the displays... More

I had always wanted to stop here and recently on a day trip to French beach we finally did. We bought 2 bottles of mead and had a wonderful conversation with the owner. The area is stunning, the wine tasting room is set to have a museum set up in it, and believe me when I say the wild flower... More

We just opened a 2006 bottle of mead for our 11 year anniversary. One word, "AMAZING"!!! Explore it for yourself.

Bob the owner operator not only creates a fantastic product, he actively educates and collaborates with governmental organizations to create and maintain a healthy bee population. With his wife Dana they are furthering the welfare and knowledge of a critical resource required to feed the planet.

Not very many Meaderies around, so if you are in the area you don't want to miss out on this uniquely delicious offering! Small family farm setting with gardens, animals, and of course bee hives. (not to worry about being swarmed or stung, they are a good distance away and busy doing their own thing) The self-guided tour is nothing... More

We stopped in to try a honey and mead tasting here. We tasted four different kinds of mead and they were all delicious. The owner was friendly and informative describing each selection, how it was made, what it was made from, etc. We bought only bottle - I should have bought another one or two. Now I will have to...

A very unique experience. The tasting hostess was very friendly and knowledgeable. The self guided tour was a little underwhelming but didn't take away from the experience. We purchased several bottles of this excellent mead to give as gifts. We had a tasting in our home after our vacation and everyone LOVED the Solstice Metheglin. Served well chilled it is... More

Didn't know anything about Meade until this visit which was right next to our B&B. Owner was very informative and we left with 3 bottles of wine/Meade which we enjoyed tremendously
