NEW TOWNS POP UP ON RURAL LAND AROUND FLORIDA
Ave Maria brewery owner gives insight to working and living in the rural town. Danee Williams traded her car in for a golf cart once she knew she was settled in her Collier County community.
She had moved to Ave Maria in 2015, and since then, things had moved quickly: houses were sprouting up, a Publix had set up shop, her husband Matthew had gotten a job at the Arthrex plant in town. Then she opened Oil Well Craft Beer in 2017, one of the first bars in town.
She used to drive to Naples for groceries or Immokalee for the Farmers Market, but lately she had used the resources by her doorstep as more businesses started to open. When the choice came between a new car and a golf cart, she came to a realization.
“We don’t have to leave.” She chose a golf cart.
