How Does Mead help to keep our local environment thriving?
We believe that fermenting wild foraged flower nectar (honey) instead of industrially grown ingredients, has the potential to regenerate wild landscapes rather than degrading them. When it comes to producing mead, there is no need to till a single acre, nor fell a single tree to make honey — bees can pull it from nearly any flowering landscape while pollinating it in the process!
That means, by choosing to enjoy a glass of our crisp mead, you are helping our essential pollinators (bees) regenerate wild spaces & food crops without the need for irrigation, broken ground, fertilizer or planted monoculture crop — that sounds pretty good to us.
