Owners of Honey Buzz Winery George and Paige Nester originally began their journey with a pumpkin farm and a few beehives in 2011. In 2010, George and Paige decided to purchase and run a pumpkin farm. A year later, the idea of keeping bees came to mind when thinking of ways to keep their plants pollinated. This turned into a hobby and the couple started obtaining even more beehives. Now, since 2018, their farm, Creek House Honey Farm, operates with 30 beehives during the year and sells raw honey and other beeswax products in addition to housing an event center, gift shop, and small diner.
George Nester, who holds a deep love for beer, began brewing mead once they had a good supply of honey. This led to the opening of the winery. Honey Buzz Winery carries a variety of carbonated meads brewed by the Nestors themselves. They also offer mead slushies that are perfect for cooling off on a hot, sunny day, and carry bottles of mead for when you want it on-the-go.
