I have seen this buisness mentioned throughout the web, but alas link to thier site are dead.

Did they fail to renew thier Domain name, or did they cease to exist as a going concern?

One of the reasons that this was of particular intrest is because they seem to have been one of the few places in the US you could order Heather Honey in bulk (well 1 gallon). Don't know how much I really want to experiment with this honey due to it's cost, but i was curious.

:-[ Sadly, Mark decided to get out of the honey business. However, the Bee Folks, in MD are a great source, and have much the same types of honey that Mark at Castlemark once had.....

Tell them I sent you, and she might even give you a discount! We're putting together an agreement, but haven't finished it formally, however, she likes sales from GotMead.

Ok they don't seem to have Heather, but several other nice options, Not in a hurry for bulk purchasing right now, i just got in $200 of OB. Be sure to post when you formalize your agreement with them and I'll put the order through you. Thier prices were a little more than some place, but it looked like they offered free shipping to TN.

Also many of thier Bulk honey selections were listed as raw, which I assume means bitsandall. I've heard this results in more pollen and varietal flavor in the finished mead. A few were listed as heated, I'd be curious to find out if they had been filtered.
