Taylor Roman has been keeping bees for the past 7 years. He first started learning the craft while working at Colchester Farm CSA on the eastern shore. Since then, he has worked throughout Maryland as a farmer, gardener, master naturalist, and environmental educator, gaining diverse skills ranging from holistic orchard management to beekeeping.
