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

This is the best stuff ever! Don't be afraid of the beautiful country drive it ends at a country porch with some tasty honey brew. These home grown concoctions will become your new favorite down time companion.

I had never heard of mead before but my husband read that years ago monks used to make it. The meadery was near Foggy Ridge Cider and they suggested we go visit. The wine is fun and something totally different. Some of the samplings have...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
