Honey Locust Farms began as a farming operation growing corn, soybeans and wheat. In 1995 we started hauling grain for others with the trucks that hauled our own grain. Then in 1999 we started hauling livestock and by 2005 we had 12 trucks hauling livestock. We then decided to expand into hauling refrigerated foods after purchasing 5 used trucks bringing the fleet up to 17 trucks. Today we currently operate a fleet of 31 trucks permitted to run 48 states. When you are a customer or an employee of Honey Locust Farms you will experience honesty, integrity and excellent service!
