Lilly Belle Meads is a farm meadery located in the Village of Lancaster, NY, owned and operated by Patricia and Joe Marshall.  
The farm meadery’s story began over 14 years ago, when the Marshall’s first purchased winemaking and brewing kits.  
After much experimentation with ingredients and brewing techniques, Patricia thought to utilize honey, as the base for their fermented beverages.  Just as a grape absorbs its terrain or terroir, affecting the taste of the wine,  honey reflects the flavors from its surrounding floral environment, contributing to the body and character within the meads.  As beekeepers, farmers, educators and parents, the Marshall’s are committed to promoting and practicing environmentally safe farming and production practices.  Lilly Belle Meads strives to create awareness about the honeybee crisis and promotes education on beekeeping topics. This family farm meadery revels in the satisfaction that their meads incorporate not only a partnership of the owners, but also with Mother Nature herself.
