Meadowfoam (Limnanthes alba) is a plant native to the Willamette Valley of northwestern Oregon. As its name suggests, it is a meadow wildflower with a white, billowy blossom. Only in the last few decades have farmers begun to cultivate the plant commercially on a small scale -- the oil from the meadowfoam seed is used as an ingredient in cosmetics.



Meadowfoam blossom honey has a creamy light vanilla quality with an undertone of clove and this is evident in the body and finish of the mead, which is brut dry, seductively refreshing and austere.
