Fallentimber Meadery is a member of the cottage winery industry in Alberta. Our doors officially opened to the public in the fall of 2010. Great mead starts with great honey, and honey is something that 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. Kevin Ryan carried on the profession of beekeeping and continues to do so as part of the Fallentimber Meadery. Ryan's Honey is sold at the Meadery store and select stores in our region.
Our honey is collected from hives placed along a narrow band at the eastern edge of the foothills. This gives our bees access to a wide variety of wildflowers and clover that cover the hills, but limits their exposure to the expansive croplands to the east. In addition to careful hive placement, our honey is meticulously handled, and never pasteurized, to ensure that it retains a natural, fresh from the comb flavour. The result is a honey that is among the best in the business; our honey consistently exceeds the highest grades of color, clarity and moisture content set out by Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
All of our meads are produced with Ryan's Honey and that superior flavour comes through in every glass.
