Our farm is located an hour north of Atlanta, GA in Jasper. It is dedicated to the mission of creating a well-balanced ecosystem and rich soils that produce nutrient-dense foods (and drinks), while treating the environment and the animals with respect. Our primary goal is to establish heavily-producing, mixed orchard & vineyard systems, that are easy to manage and require minimal off-farm inputs.

Most simply, mead is a wine made with honey. It is fermented with three basic ingredients: honey, water, and yeast. However, there are many different styles of mead, which are based on the basic ingredients (e.g., honey) and flavorings (e.g., herbs, spices) added, degree of sweetness, alcoholic strength, degree of carbonation, and even country of origin.
