A Spoonful of Honey

A Spoonful of Honey
Growing up surrounded by nature in Destin, Florida, Amy was encouraged to work with her hands. Through the years, her affinity for nature grew, as did her enjoyment of the family pastime. “All signs pointed to beekeeping,” says Amy, who is a third-generation apiarist. When she began selling jars on her front porch from an antique china cabinet, The Honey Hutch was born. Since then, the enterprise has only grown.

The Honey Hutch is also a business with a bigger purpose. Along with managing operations, Amy created Project: Agriculture, which is based in Nicaragua, one of the poorest countries in the world. She partnered with the nonprofit, The Sonder Project, to provide hives for ten families. Through beekeeping, she hopes the families are able to generate income to provide for themselves. Amy is confident that the products and the agricultural benefits of crop pollination that come from these beehives will be able impact the country, one hive at a time.
