At Fallentimber, every great glass of mead starts with great honey, and honey is something the Ryan family knows very well. Back in 1969, Blake Ryan started the family business when he purchased the family farm and established his first hives. The honey is collected from hives placed along a narrow band at the eastern edge of the foothills, giving the bees access to a wide variety of wildflowers and clover that cover the hills.
Since the Meadery doors officially opened to the public in the fall of 2010, Fallentimber has grown substantially. The success of the 2017 launch of their tasty Meadjito allowed Fallentimber to build a new facility to meet the demands of thirsty Albertans!
Book a tour and tasting at Fallentimber during your visit to Cochrane — you will not be disappointed! Oh, and don't forget to grab some honey while you're there too.
