    Over the Moon

    BY:Josh and Brent

        One of the most enduring and recognizable images in cinema is of a boy named Elliot riding a bicycle, pedaling so fast that he soars into the sky—aided by a certain extraterrestrial and some movie magic. Steven Spielberg is one of the most popular directors of all time because he captures on the […]

    If the Hall Could Talk

    BY:Dr. Brent

    önder, the table, and dreaming

    BY:Dr. Brent

      When I was a child almost every Sunday’s paper would have a small advertisement in the classifieds showing an old photograph of someone. The caption read:  “Lordy, lordy look who’s 40”.  I don’t know what I found so captivating about this bit of hometown humor. Perhaps it was trying to figure out what 40 […]

    Beneath the Pale

    BY:Dr. Brent

      I would like to blame it on the blinding whiteness of winter.  A time when the rolling landscape of Sharon Springs is covered for months by snow. But as much as we like to think we make the time to lay witness to all the wonders that Beekman Farm reveals to us, we evidently […]

      It seems like virtually every employee that finds their way to Beekman 1802 has creative streak that cannot be suppressed.  Even the long days and hard work at a fast-growing company cannot deter. Vicki Whicker is the Beekman 1802 Director of Wholesale Accounts. In 2011, Vicki left Los Angeles for central New York to […]

    There Goes the Neighborhood

    BY:Dr. Brent

    We’ve often spoke of our love of community, not just the one that we found in Sharon Springs when we moved here, but all the opportunities we have in our daily lives to find good “neighbors” – online, in the Mercantile, sitting next to us on an airplane….wherever.

    Barber of the Ville

    BY:Dr. Brent

    One of life’s most memorable experiences (for proud parents) is the first haircut.  Now that Josh is a full-time resident in Sharon Springs, we thought it was time to introduce him to the town barbershop.

    A New Year

    BY:Dr. Brent

      At the start of any relationship, there are love letters, there are fireworks, and birds singing. In 2008, we celebrated our 10th anniversary by buying one another the traditional gift of  “tin”. The reason we had to cash in our life savings and take out a half-million dollar mortgage was because the “tin” happened […]
