Local beekeepers launch retail endeavor
Lindsay — Sample Family Apiaries announced last week the launch of its new honey company to be headed by a mother and son duo, Sarah and Tyler Sample.
“With many people wanting to buy high quality, pure, raw, and local honey for their families but not knowing where to go, we knew that the honey ours bees make was needed in the marketplace,” said Sarah Sample, owner of True Gold Honey and a third generation beekeeper whose parents and grandparents started beekeeping in the 1970s.
When Tyler returned home to join the family business, these forwardthinking business owners recognized an opportunity to expand their successful apiary operation with Tyler spearheading the retail distribution. The goal is to bring their distinct and rare varieties of locally sourced, high quality, pure honey to the regional market.
“Opening a jar of True Gold Honey is like opening a jar of liquid sunshine,” said Sarah Sample, co-owner of True Gold Honey.
True Gold Honey is sourced directly from the family beekeeping business, Sample Family Apiaries. The honey is pure, raw and unfiltered, and is never cooked or diluted; allowing it to retain all of the health benefits and is filled with live antibodies, enzymes and minerals.
“We say True Gold Honey is straight from the hive to your family’s table,” said Tyler Sample, VP of Marketing and co-owner who began tending his own bees at the age of 13.
Headquartered in Lindsay, True Gold Honey offers five distinct varieties including, their award winning buckwheat honey, avocado honey, summer valley flower honey, coastal mountain sage honey and orange blossom honey.
