Chris Kelley with his hives (credit: Felicia LaLomia).

Master beekeeper Chris Kelly walks out to his backyard, where several of his 200 plus colonies of bees he oversees are.

White smoke pours out of the spigot of a tin can, exacerbated by the pillow-like bellows Kelly pushes. He focuses the smoke around the tall house-like structures that hold the bees.

Kelly’s bee education and honey business is Promise Land Apiaries.

You can find his honey at shops around the North Fork or on his website
