Lucy and Mike met in Ithaca, NY while Lucy was attending Ithaca College. Having fallen in love with each other, with Ithaca, and with the Finger Lakes, our dream is to have our own business some day. We sincerely hope to make a career of beekeeping by opening up a Meadery in the Finger Lakes.
Hailing from Lancaster, NY, Mike took a beekeeping class in his senior year at Cornell University and that is how everything began. Now in his sixth year keeping bees, he loves it more and more each time he cracks open a hive to check on the fluffy little girls.
Outside of beekeeping Mike is a material scientist at e2e Materials, Inc., a local startup developing biocomposite building materials. Lucy works in the tasting room at Six Mile Creek Vineyard while being a full-time student studying wine and hospitality at Tompkins Cortland Community College.
Currently, we live in Ithaca, NY with our almost one-year-old daughter, two cats, and a dog.
