When we first started Beekman 1802, it was our belief that a farm could be bigger than its fences. What happened on our 60 acres each season could not only inspire us to live a more considered life, but could help others find the beauty in their own backyard and in their own communities.
As Beekman1802.com grew, and we started sharing more and more of our ideas, we made certain to never present ourselves as “experts”. Rather, we wanted to be “constant learners” and invite others to learn along with us. (And every day we continue to learn FROM you!)
We would have never thought that the day would come when we would reach 100,000 “likes” on Facebook. It’s actually very easy to reach this number and even much higher—you can literally buy “likes”–and many celebrities and brands do this.
But we did it the old fashioned way. We earned each one.
If you see a post on our Facebook page or any of our social media accounts, it comes directly from us and not another employee or bot. If you get an email with our name on it—we wrote it!
And we often tell other entrepreneurs that social media is a great equalizer between small and large businesses. It costs us the same to set up a Facebook or Twitter account as it does for Coca-Cola.
Just like all the big companies, you can also find us on Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram all using the familiar Beekman1802Boys moniker. We use each outlet in a different way so that even if you follow us on every platform, you’re always getting something unique.
We think of everyone who we meet in our community–either the one in Sharon Springs (population 547) or the one on Facebook (population 100,000) as our neighbors.
Thank you for being part of our world.
