New Mead Release

Announcing our winter seasonal mead 
The Saturnalian.

Named for an ancient Roman winter festival in honor of Saturn, god of agriculture and the harvest, celebrating (among other things), the returning power of the sun's light after the winter solstice.

 

Saturnalian is a traditional sweet mead made with meadowfoam honey and infused with cinnamon, a hint of nutmeg, and heavenly Haitian cocoa nibs from 

The Cocoa Forge in Port Townsend.

Meadery Art Show

On display through January 30

We are so pleased to show the works of Diane Walker ~ local writer and artist whose colorful abstract paintings are inspired by her 25 years living on the shores of the Pacific Northwest. Working primarily in acrylics, her mystical pieces explore interactions between natural forms — particularly undulations of sea and sky — inviting the viewer into an open, imaginative, and peaceful space. Diane's works have shown in Port Townsend's Northwind Art; Seattle’s Columbia Center; Forest Park's Red Sky Gallery; EAFA Galleries in Kirkland, Mercer Island, and Seattle; Bainbridge Arts and Crafts; Port Ludlow Art League Gallery; and juried Art Festivals throughout the greater Seattle area.

About Us

simple pleasures. relax. enjoy.

Wilderbee is a certified organic, family-run farm specializing in u-pick lavender, flowers, and pumpkins.

 

We raise honeybees for pollination and a conservation flock of rare, primitive British Soay sheep for wool. During summer we distill lavender for essential oil ~ available at our farm store along with our lavender lotions and balms, blackberry blossom honey, bottles of mead, and unique woodcrafts made by Dad.

 

In 2019 we opened a meadery {The Mead Werks} at the farm ~ a production barn and tasting room specializing in small-batch traditional and barrel-aged meads. 

 

Wilderbee is located in the scenic, historic seaport and arts community of Port Townsend on Washington's beautiful Olympic Peninsula. In 2011 we built Wilderbee as a destination with visitors in mind, to provide a relaxing place for folks to explore and enjoy simple pleasures. Bring a picnic. Feed the sheep. Pick a bouquet. Sip some mead. Walk our nature trails. Enjoy the day at Wilderbee.

For Everyone’s Comfort & Safety:

Watch your step, pathways may be uneven. 

Avoid walking through crop rows. Use aisles.

Accompany young children at all times.

Keep dogs at home or safely in your vehicle.

Service dogs are welcome.

Thank you for not smoking.

Our Values

To laugh often and much. 

To win the respect of intelligent people. To earn the appreciation of honest critics. To appreciate beauty. To find the best in others. To leave the world a bit better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition. To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. 

This is to have succeeded.
