  • Meet Chicago's best urban beekeeper

    Travis grew up in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee but eats a Chicago-style hotdog every single day to help assimilate into the local culture. He began beekeeping while he was serving with the Peace Corps in West Africa, and he continues to delight in the work of introducing friendly humans to friendly honey bees and their magnificent beehives, to try and inspire some new beekeepers, in this incredible city.
