Save the Bees, Drink Mead
At Elgin Meadery, we believe in the ecological benefit of locally sourced ingredients and take pride in crafting a sustainable product that represents our local region, and serves to help preserve our eco system.
As you may know, the honey bee population has been in rapid decline over the past decades, leading to a loss of plant life and failing crops from lack of bee pollination. As a result, there has been an increase in beekeeping and restorative agriculture practices that utilize bees to revitalize regions. The byproduct of this is of course honey. With the bee population dwindling, and the need for beekeepers desperately rising, demand for honey from the mead industry provides greater profitability and sustainability to the ecologically essential practice of beekeeping. Making mead helps save the bees, which in turn, helps save our ecosystem and crops.
