Midgrad Meadery is a Nova Scotia’s only Small Farm Winery (non-grape) and has offered 12th Century traditional meade in the Norwegian style since 2006. The Meadery is part of and located at Scotch Lake Farm in Scotch Lake, NS. As of July 1, 2018, the Meadery became the sole proprietorship of Jen Holtom, partner in the farm operations. The farm is known as Scotch Lake Farm or Scotch Lake Apiaries or even Scotch Lake Beekeepers’ Academy as we are all about keeping honey bees.

To be a licensed farm meadery (or farm winery) in Nova Scotia means that we must produce the main ingredient in our alcohol beverage … but in fact, we attempt to produce all the ingredients in all our meade and all of our farm products are free of chemicals. When we must purchase ingredients, we purchase from other Nova Scotia farmers and beekeepers.
