Fargo, ND (WDAY/WDAZ TV) – It will be the one and only in our area and you’d have to go to another state to get the same experience.
Which may surprise some of you considering this drink of ye olde times uses one of North Dakota’s top products as a key ingredient.
North Dakota tops the list for honey production in the U.S., and yet the state does not have its own honey wine producing meadery, until now.
Susan Ruud has been making homemade mead for more than 20 years.
Susan Ruud/Prairie Rose Meadery, “Just decided, well, you know, I can do this!”
She is giving up her research job at NDSU to build a business of passion opening Prarie Rose Meadery in South Fargo.
Ruud, “It’s just, it’s fun. Making your own mead and sharing it with someone is some much fun when you see their expression and wow this is really good.”
The meadery is still under construction, but when complete, it will have a tasting room to start three meads will be made in house.
