• Spring in the Airwaves

    BY:Angela Rae Berg

    As spring scents tumble through the village of Sharon Springs, and new products are laid out in the mercantile in their perfect packaging, we felt it was the perfect time to bring some new aural treats into the shop for our visitors. The Mercantile playlist has grown quite lengthy over the past year. While it’s a much better rotation than when the shop first opened and Brent played only one Natalie Merchant album over and over, I do think Megan […]

      Upon returning from our excursion to China last year, I sent a gift to Brent that I knew he would enjoy.  Natalie Merchant had recently released the album Leave Your Sleep, and I sent it over to the Beekman in hopes it would keep him in peaceful mood as he caught up on the mountain of work that had piled up while we were away.

Brent and Josh have been incredibly welcoming ever since the first day of filming. So much so, […]

  • First Impressions

    Before I first met the Beekman Boys, there were numerous phone conversations. Conversations where I had no idea which voice belonged Brent and which belonged to Josh. Is the one with the southern accent the drag queen?  Is the funny one living at the farm, or is it the one that just wants to talk about scheduling? As we looked over our calendars to choose the first weekend of filming and eventually settled on one just days away, I inquired […]
