The Great Lakes Bee Company honey comes from Fremont. Pear juice and cider come from Seedling Farms South Haven, blueberries come from Adkins Blue Ribbon. Only fresh fruits and raw honey are used to make their top-class meads. There is no addition of chemicals, the fermentation is natural. This makes sure that the Mead has a rich, sweet, natural taste.
