Hi, Country Living Magazine readers. We’re glad to meet you. (Don’t get Country Living, see the article from the November 2011 issue by clicking here.)
If you just read about us in your November 2011 issue, and this is your first time here…welcome! If you liked the recipes in the magazine and are interested in our cookbook, The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook, please click here to purchase, or visit your local bookstore. You’ll also find our great community of heirloom cooks in our cookbook section of this website.
If you want to know more about us, here’s a little tour of the farm and what we do…
First off, we’re Brent and Josh, otherwise known as “The Fabulous Beekman Boys.” Brent is a physician who used to work as “Dr Brent” at Martha Stewart Omnimedia. Josh is a writer, who also works in advertising. We’ve been together 11 years, having met in New York City where we lived full time up until three years ago. That’s when we stumbled across the Beekman Mansion and Farm in Sharon Springs, NY while on an apple picking trip.
You can watch our adventures on our TV show, “The Fabulous Beekman Boys” now available on iTunes, DVD, or Amazon Instant Video. Or you can read all about how we became “accidental goat farmers” and founded our company, Beekman 1802, in our bestselling memoir “The Bucolic Plague.” If you’re interested in trying some of our goat milk soaps, cheese, and artisanal crafts, please check out our online store or visit us in person.
Beekman1802.com is the hub of everything Beekman:
For those who watch The Fabulous Beekman Boys, you can get behind the scenes dirt in our Beyond Fabulous blog.
You can chat with other “BeekGeeks” in our forums.
So we’re glad you found us. Please look around and let us know what you think. And please share any advice with us as well. We can all always be a little more fabulous.
Josh & Brent
