The Expert

Bev is 53, she grew up on a farm in Iowa and graduated from high school, married her high school sweetheart and became a stay at home mom to 3 kids who are all grown up now. She currently lives in Roeland Park, Kansas and she enjoys urban farming, gardening, knitting, and is actively involved in church. She believes strongly in local food and having the right to own chickens so she fights against unfair city ordinances that halt the practice of urban chicken farming. She is interested in creating a community for urban chicken farmers where advice can be exchanged and experiences shared. She is known as the queen of the chickens and believes that they can fight for the right to have chickens as long as they join together. Her children are also interested in having their own chickens and she actively helps them.
