New Art Show

Hours: Fri-Sun 12-5pm

Two Port Townsend artists light up the meadery walls with beautiful oil and cold wax paintings on display through the end of July.

Barbara 2.jpeg

Barbara Cecil fell in love with oil painting 24 years ago. She recently met cold wax/oil technique and was taken by its refusal to co-operate with any intention. This exhibit is a mix of her oil and cold wax adventures.

Bolt of Inspiration.jpg

Suzy Carroll is an abstract painter using self-taught cold wax techniques inspired by the mystery and magic of nature and how shapes emerge from light dancing in the forest, or how images form when cloud watching.

Located in a quiet, pastoral community just west of Port Townsend, Wilderbee is a family-run destination farm where you can relax and enjoy some of life’s simpler pleasures. We grow certified organic lavender, flowers, and pumpkins for u-pick, pomme fruit for our meads, and raise a conservation flock of rare, British Soay sheep for wool. During summer we hand-harvest and distill our lavender for essential oil using a copper distiller to capture the sweetest floral notes. Our farm store offers our essential oils, hydrosols, lotions, soaps, and balms as well as raw honey, bottles of mead, and unique woodcrafts made by dad. In the barn loft we provide a fully-equipped ceramics studio for adult use through spring and summer. On weekends visitors can relax and sip our award-winning handcrafted meads at the Mead Werks tasting room and garden overlooking the farm. We specialize in traditional and barrel-aged meads complemented by seasonal batches made with organic farm-grown ingredients. Our twelve-acre property is also home to honeybees, native pollinators, and a diverse ecology of woodland and wetland areas that attract an abundance of wildlife and birds. During open hours we invite you to explore the trails that meander through this nature sanctuary.

Our Commitment

We are committed to stewarding the land we farm organically and aesthetically; and providing healthy habitat for wildlife and natural pollinators.

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.
