Turkey coop home of Burt’s Bees co-founder to be saved




PARKMAN, Maine (AP) — The converted turkey coop that a co-founder of Burt's Bees once called home in Maine is going to be saved.

Burt's Bees has purchased the structure where Burt Shavitz lived and has moved it to Durham, North Carolina, where the company is headquartered.

Shavitz lived in the 300-square-foot home for years and ended up back there before his death in July 2015 because his house was damaged by a fire. His former personal assistant, Trevor Folsom, said the former beekeeper preferred the turkey coop over the modern house anyway.

Folsom inherited the land, along with Shavitz's golden retriever.
