Mead is an ancient drink that has historically been reserved for royalty. It has been found in archeological digs dated to over 5000 years old and is now making a come back in the craft beverage industry. Mead is made from fermented honey and often includes fruit or spices. While many meads are smooth and sweet, they have a diverse range of flavor from dry to even spicy.

Implementing NEW ideas for agriculture sustainability

At East Grove Farms we are working on building a farm that focuses on improving the health of the soil first. Organic growing methods and pesticide free technologies are tested and used on the farm. We hope to work with researchers in the future to discover the most effective methods for producing our crops while maintaining our commitment to sustainable agriculture.
