Tugwell Creek Honey Farm and Meadery was liscenced in 2003 as the first Meadery in Western Canada. At our oceanside honeyfarm we hand craft the highest quality Meads (Honey Wines) from our own local honey. 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 experience to have: a visit to learn more from expert owners Dana and Bob all you need to know about honey and how mead is made, one of the oldest beverage created . Taste MEAD and bring back a few bottles to sip at home. A wonderful learning holiday.

The honey wine "mead" is very good. They have found there niche in an environment that does not allow for the ordinary to flourish. A bit out of the way but if your in the area it is an interesting stop and you may even learn something you didn't know. A fun few hours and a shot or two seem... More

Lovely local honey and mead. Great destination trip for local Victorians. Be sure to check out the gardens and learn more about bee keeping.

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

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
