Bumstead Provisions guys
The opening of Bumstead Provisions is still a number of months off, but I was curious to get to know the guys behind the idea a little bit better. So, I sat down with owners Devin Eichler and Mike Bodow at Honeypie Cafe, just down the street from the Bumstead's site, for a chat.
