This Week: Golden Meadows Honey Farm

How did your business start?
Years ago, local family owned and operated business Golden Meadows Honey Farm owners, Lidia and Christian were bedazzled by the idea of a combined store that supplies the community with both honey & artisanal gifts as well as beekeeping supplies.
Christian’s ‘getter done’ attitude turned his interest in beekeeping into a complete bee operation, running the business’s mid-sized apiary focusing on pollination and speciality honey production.
Our storefront as well the opportunities to attend farmers markets allows Lidia to pursue her dreams of developing connections within the community to learn and to share our knowledge with others. Reflecting back, Lidia is awed by how much she has learned about bees’ significance to the environment, society and economy, and ways to learn from and support the bees. “I believe we have everything we need here within our community.”
The two combined their passions into a beautiful business!
Thanks, Golden Meadows! We appreciate you joining us this season!
Find them this week at the market, September 22nd, from 3-7pm in Tipperary Park.
