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.

“An Interesting Stop Going To or From the Beaches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

This makes for a very interesting stop when sightseeing in the Sooke area. The proprietor is has been keeping bees and making mead for generations and is very knowledgeable. There is a tasting room, a la a winery, where you can sample the variety of honeys and meads produced on the property and buy if you wish. Highly recommended.

“Yummy honey!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

The owners, Bob and Dana, are very friendly and knowledgeable and their mead (honey wine) and honey are first-rate. An easy day trip from Victoria for a very unique experience, plus you get to go home with some delicious mead! My favorite was the spicy melomel(?).

“Really neat place to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

Located just west of Sooke on the way to Jordan River, this is a really neat place to visit. Staff are friendly and knowledgable, honey and mead products are tasty and well priced, and the little storefront shop/sample bar is unique and cozy.
