About Royal Meadery

Royal Meadery was started by Gregory Wilhelm to further pursue his passion for beekeeping and brewing. Gregory has been keeping bees for over seven years in Upstate NY. Each year his beekeeping operation grows and is able to produce more honey. While we use more honey than we can currently produce, we look to grow our apiary each year to expand our own honey production.

Royal Meadery combines my passion for beekeeping and my love for fermented beverages.

Our Start

While enrolled in SUNY Cobleskill, Gregory started to develop his business plan for Royal Meadery as an assignment in his entrepreneurship classes. After qualifying in the regional business plan competition, he entered the New York State Business Plan Competition in 2014 and 2015 earning third and second place, respectively at the State Finals. Shortly after winning second place at the NYS Business Plan Competition he opened his first manufacturing location in the Schoharie Valley.
