I am often asked, what is the future that I envision for Wicked Way Mead. I would like to open a fully operating mead factory, connected to a small farm and bee keeping operation. Growing fruits, herbs, to be used for mead. Bees pollinate and create honey from these crops. A focus on local and regional products. Visitors can come and enjoy this natural cycle of nature, learn about bees, they can see the beauty of it directly, experience and taste. These photos I have taken while visiting other meaderies to study operations, they help to visualize what I speak of.
Elements that I am seeking-
Rural or semi-rural but with the ability to have tourist flow and regular customers.
Farmable soil to support limited crops. space for up to 50 bee hives.
Existing building with cement flooring that can be renovated into a mead factory, drains, water supply, electric.
Support from managers of agriculture. local government, business development for regulations and licensing.
Appropriate fundraising for reform, build, equipment.
