Elgin Meadery is owned and operated by Micah and Michelle Erwin on their property in the heart of Elgin Texas. The couple were married in 2003 and have two children. They have shared a passion for good, locally sourced food and mead for a long time and are committed to staying connected to, and supporting, local food systems.
Micah, the Head Mead Maker, has over a decade of experience making mead and holds a Master of Arts in Medieval Studies and a Master of Science in Information Studies. He tasted really great mead for the first time during an international medieval conference and since that formative experience has taken mead beyond its historical roots by crafting thoughtful, delicious modern meads, all the while maintaining a dedication to improving his craft.
Michelle (Chief of Strategy and Social Media) is a director at the Health and Human Services Commission of Texas. She brings her many years of experience in leadership to the business, and manages social media and strategic initiatives. She enjoys taste testing meads and offering feedback!
