Details

Nestled in the heart of Prince Edward Island, Canada’s gem of pastoral beauty and the country’s smallest province, the Island Honey Wine Company stands as a testament to the dedication and passion of its proprietors. Since its establishment in 2017, this fully operational meadery has not only produced award-winning meads but has also offered a unique and immersive experience to its visitors. With its scenic location just 20 minutes from Charlottetown, the estate offers breathtaking pastoral views, a purpose-built production facility, and a tasting room that has become a must-visit for both locals and international tourists alike.

The Island Honey Wine Company is more than just a meadery; it’s a living, breathing farm where the ingredients for the meads are grown. The farm is home to the world’s first and only “Meadmobile” tasting tour, offering guests an unparalleled experience of tasting meads directly from the source while learning about the intricacies of beekeeping and honey production. This dedication to sustainability extends to the farm’s practices, including strip grazing sheep to maintain fertile soil and collaborating with local beekeepers to ensure a steady supply of island honey. The meadery’s approach to crafting its beverages, using various blends of fruit and honey, highlights the richness of Prince Edward Island’s natural resources.

Situated by the Wheatley River on two sides, the farm offers a serene setting for early morning fishing trips where catching Brook Trout is almost guaranteed. The spring-fed river remains unfrozen, but the farm’s pond is perfect for those who enjoy ice activities like hockey or skating. The farm attracts various waterfowl like ducks and geese and notably lacks bears, deer, moose, groundhogs, wild pigs, or porcupines, which is advantageous for orchard farming. For those interested in horses, a barn is available, while the farm features trails for morning runs.

Various parts of the farm are designated for growing apples, pears, peaches, lavender, and Haskap berries. Haskap berry is a superb super fruit, it is not only delicious but also incredibly high in antioxidants.

As the current owners prepare to retire, they offer a rare opportunity to inherit not just a successful business but a lifestyle that many can only dream of. The farm comprises a 55-acre estate with a 3-bedroom bungalow, a fully equipped meadery, and all the necessary tools and equipment for farm management. This sale represents not just a commercial transaction but the passing on of a legacy that has been nurtured with love and hard work. For the right person or family, the Island Honey Wine Company promises not only a livelihood but a life filled with the joys of rural living, complete with clean air, great water, and proximity to the ocean’s bounty. It’s an invitation to continue a journey of sustainable living, community engagement, and the production of exquisite meads that capture the essence of Prince Edward Island.
