Tugwell Creek Honey Farm and Meadery was liscenced in 2003 as the first Meadery in Western Canada. At our oceanside honeyfarm we hand craft the highest quality Meads (Honey Wines) from local honey. Meadmaker Bob Liptrot has kept bees since the age of 6 and has been making mead for over 35 years. Come taste our award winning meads and honey. In 2014 we became the new Economusee on Vancouver Island. Tugwell now boasts a museum quality exhibit, interactive displays, and a self guided audio tour.

Stopped by here because we saw a sign for it off the road and it was well worth a visit! The owner was very friendly and the meads were absolutely delicious!

We were a little lost in the beginning, we should have stopped at the reception first to get some directions on the self-guided tour. The tour shows very interesting facts about bees and the Island's environment. The tasting is definitely a go, with a lot...More
