Meet the Meadmaker | Hierophant Meadery | April 13, 2024 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Slow Food Whidbey Island is excited to announce a “Meet the Meadmaker” event at Hierophant Meadery on Saturday, April 13th from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Located at Hierophant’s production site and tasting room at 5586 Double Bluff Road, Freeland, WA 98249, the cost of attendance is $15.00 for Slow Food members and $20.00 for non-members. Attendees must be 21 years of age or older to attend. 

At the event, attendees will hear from Hierophant’s mead maker Jeremy Kyncl, who will provide a tour of the production facility and will discuss how their mead is made and sourced. Using local honey, Hierophant Meadery produces a wide array of products, including its award-winning botanical meads. By relying on local ingredients, Hierophant supports the societal, economic, and environmental value of our Whidbey Island community.

Directly following the tour, attendees will be invited to a tasting room experience, where mead tasting flights will be available for $5.00 (half off the usual price) and where they can purchase a glass or bottle of mead and enjoy snacks prepared by Slow Food Whidbey Island. Hierophant’s charming gift shop with locally-sourced items will also be open, and attendees can purchase bottles of mead at 10% off the usual price.

Please join us for an evening to remember! Space is limited. Email Slow Food Whidbey Island at [email protected] to reserve a spot.

Nutritional Therapy is like regenerative farming for the body. Please join Bethany Rodriguez, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP), for a discussion about some of the core foundations of nutritional therapy and how to view our bodies as a system like any other that can regenerate and thrive using the right tools and greater awareness. Bethany will emphasize understanding and improving the gut microbiome and how food diversity and soil health play a key role in improving this system.

There is no fee to attend this event, however, a donation to Slow Food Whidbey Island will help us continue our mission to promote good, clean and fair food for all! Space will be limited. Please email us at [email protected] to reserve a spot.
