Joe Traynor is a bee broker in the almond orchards of California. Joe smoothes the business interactions between the beekeeper/pollinator and the almond grower. He has been in the pollination business since the early '70s and has seen it all.
He has written several books and has donated the proceeds to bee research. Book titles (available on Amazon) include "Honey: The Gourmet Medicine" and "Ideas in Soil and Plant Nutrition".
Later in the episode, Kim provides his perspective on the value a broker provides the beekeeper.
