I am a mead-maker, biologist and bee-keeper who has won the full 3 stars in The Great Taste Awards and Sliver in the IWSC for my mead. I have a passion for historical mead-making and I want to bring this traditional back into everyone's kitchens.

The mead making takes place at my little space on the beautiful Trill Farm, an old English, working organic farm dedicated to conservation and reconnecting people with nature

Thomas made the mead making such a personalised experience, me and my pattner had great fun hearing about and making the mead. We found Thomas to be engaging and funny, he made sure that we were involved and provided a lot of things about mead we didn't know previously. We also gpt to come aqay woth the mead we made and instructions on how to make sure it comes out right which was a nice touch. I highly recommend this experience!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our mead making experience. Thomas was really informative and we were able to taste a wide range of mead. He didn't skimp on the measures either! Not only did we get to come away with a range of mead, we also received a kombucha starter, a bottle each of our own mead creation, a wild mead starter and some smoked rosemary infused honey that was used in one of the cocktails we made. Thanks so much!

The Mead tasting course with Thomas was fab! It was just the two of us and he made us feel at home. We were told about the history of mead whilst having multiple tasters of different types, with a Mead cocktail to round it up! We then finished up with making our own ‘wild’ and standard mead to ferment at home using herbs from his herb garden just outside the front door. I really couldn’t recommend it enough!
