The Honey Truck Company is the dream of Danielle Brooks, who began her burgeoning business with the idea of bottling honey from bees who lived in St. Augustine itself. Her dream included a vintage truck, filled to the brim with artisan products, which she is now the proud owner of (after learning how to drive a stick shift!).
There are many reasons to enjoy local honey, from health benefits (antioxidants, seasonal allergy relief) to tasting the local flora. But for Danielle, what began as a quest for local honey became an obsession with apiculture and the desire to share her love of bees with friends across her hometown.
After her initial experiments in her own backyard, Danielle began asking friends to foster hives in their own yards so that she could harvest honey from different micro-regions in her hometown of St. Augustine, Florida.
