We are a family apiary from the south of Bavaria. I trained as a beekeeper in Graz, Austria, where I obtained my journeyman's certificate. Our bees are located at various locations in mixed forests, flower meadows but also on the longest castle complex in the world in Burghausen. We keep the bees themselves as close to nature as possible and have the honeycombs expanded in natural construction. In this way, we obtain our special honey, which we then process into many different products. However, honey wine and honey liqueurs are for us the highest art of refining our honey. The fruits for our fruit varieties come almost exclusively from our own cultivation or from the flower meadows where our bees collect the nectar. "The Mead Dragon" (Der Met Drache) was born from our enthusiasm for craftsmanship and represents for us the combination of ancient tradition and mysticism which embodies this special drink for us. We offer our products at markets, medieval markets, various shops but also in our own beekeeping business. There we organize courses on beekeeping and mead production, because it is important to us to pass on this knowledge and the art of mead brewing to others in order to preserve these old traditions.
