    The Beekman 1802 Annex is now open for business!   Josh’s grandfather (pictured above) used to own a small grocery in nearby Coxsackie, NY, so an eye for the essential (and the elaborate) runs in the family. In 1802, William Beekman, one of upstate New York’s most successful merchants, built the residence and farm we […]

    The Chatter (Nov)

    BY:Josh and Brent

Sharon Springs has beautiful people and above-average children, too, so on to Plan B. What is a small town village without a […]

    BY:Josh and Brent

      The hardest working village in America pulled it off once again! For the 2011 Harvest Festival this past weekend, Sharon Springs (population 547) swelled to over 10 times its size…which roughly matches the size of its heart.  Though the weather forecast called for two straight days of rain, we all consulted our Farmers Almanacs […]

This year a portion of the proceeds for GrowNYC will be directed to help […]

      When we started the Sharon Springs Harvest Festival two years ago, we dreamed it to be an occasion to celebrate the harvest from our local farmers and a day to bring the community together.   The first we were thrilled when 500 people showed up to the one day event.  Last year, imagine our surprise […]

    BY:Josh and Brent

      Around the middle of the 19th century, hops was one of the most important agricultural crops in upstate NY and people from urban areas would come to Schoharie County on vacation for the sole purpose of helping with the hop harvest.  No doubt, part of the draw was the fun and frolicking in the […]
