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.
