Ryan started out at Beekman 1802 as our retail manager at the Mercantile, moved to wholesales and is now part of our digital marketing team as Team Beekman grows. He is known by some of our Neighbors as DJ Hotpocket from his days of spinning the one’s and two’s during events at the Mercantile. We’re still trying to unearth some of the photos of his alter persona.

What are your top 5 Beekman products?

1. Ghoast Cheese: Ghoast is a raw, aged cheese made from 100% goat milk from Farmer John’s best milkers.

2. Chewey Gooey Caramels: One a day will keep the sweet tooth away… except that I can never have just one.

3. Pure Goat Milk Lip Balm: Much like Brent, I’m addicted to lip balm.

4. Gentleman Goat Farmer Long Sleeve Tee: It might be because I’m biased, after all, I’m the artist behind the Gentleman Goat Farmer portrait.

5. Trip of a Lifetime (I want to go to Peru!)

What is your favorite scent that Beekman carries? 

Love the Davesforth Shave Bar.

What is your favorite packaging?

I’m digging the Happy Place line. I think the overall vibe hits the mark spot on for inspiring happy feelings with a very kid/pet friendly honest appeal.

What Beekman gift would you like to gift to someone this year? To whom?

Trip of a Lifetime Peru to Kaitlyn (his girlfriend)

I love your facial wipes and soap. I used the wipes when I was in the hospital for my knee replacement. I bought them just for that purpose but I must admit that I like them so much I use them all the time now.
I also really like the lip balm and body lotion.

The goat milk soap has healed my sister’s hands and changed our lives forever. My sister is blind and has diabetes she is also a dialysis patient. Her hands were black from constant washing and her face has burns from her most recent surgery. The color in her hands has returned. The burns in her face are going away. We are forever changed thank God for Beekman 1802. Snow Forest is the most wonderful scent we have ever smelled. Thank you Beekman1802 may God continue to Bless you and your business.

We have just begun to experience the great products you make! I am sending your wonderful hand cream and more to my brother for Christmas – I know he will love the quality for his hard-working hands. I love the lip balm and the hand cream and the body wash and my husband loves the Vanilla bar soap. I prefer the Fresh Air scent. I think the eye creams would be great to win!

Beekman products are wonderful, especially the lip balm and hand cream. My daughter bought me the goat tote bag for Christmas one year, I love it and use it constantly. I have goats for pets and, your packaging featuring goats is adorable. Nothing more beautiful than baby goats!
Receiving any Beekman product for a gift would make anyone happy.

I love anything Beekman and patiently awaiting the arrival of the bounty box. So anxious to smell the new winter smell. I have been using the pure goat milk hand cream on my face and it is so soft to the touch and that is saying something for 67 years old skin. So happy I found your products and will never be without them. My favorite smell is the sexy sexy. I get intoxicated just smelling myself. If I were to win I would appretiate anything and for my friend Joan I would love the body cream.

I love the Vanilla Absolu products. My husband would love the gent’s grooming kit for his lovely beard. And my best friend Melody Luttman could really use the caramels.

Guests will be fascinated with ghoast cheese appetizers on Christmas Eve—in honor of the three ghosts in Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol.” Savory creaminess on a cracker! What a way to contribute to the holiday cheer! I can’t wait to try it.

The body butters are wonderful! The scent from the soaps full the room. Best cuticle cream ever. Wouldn’t mind them. Haven’t tried the caramels yet…

I would love to win the caramels and share them with my friend, Janet Lominski. She and I have been on several girls trips with other friends. Our trip to Sharon Springs was the sweetest. That’s where we met our neighbors. We have maintained friendships with people we met there.

I have bought several things from Beekman and the quality is always the best. I am never disappointed. I would be happy with ANYTHING.

While I truly enjoy the Ghoast cheese received from Beekman 1802, the salty fudge cookie is tops for my sweet tooth. Continue to love the soaps, especially scents Apricot and Honey Tea or Vanilla Absolute; especially liked this years Bounty Box wrapping; and have added a trip to Sharon Springs + Beekman Farm to my Bucket List.
Win or not, the Beekman 1802 community spirit is tops!

I love all your products and the support that you give to local artisans and your community. The Ghoast cheese sounds great. I’ve had the Blaak variety before and it was yummy! I have the best neighbors anyone could hope for. I’d share the cheese with them all at a holiday get together.

I’d love to share all the picks with my man and daughter! My favorite scent is the vanilla absolute. I love the way it makes my skin feel and the delicious way it makes me smell….i absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, the beauty products and the lip balm. My dream trip would be to the Fijian island to marry my significant other (of 9 years).

Would love to win Ryan’s picks to share with George. He loves Ghoast cheese and the caramels.

I love Ryan’s picks. I too am also addicted to the lip balm. My two favourites are the plain Natural Goats Milk with Frankie and Blossom on the tube and the wondermint. I haven’t tried the Ghoast Cheese; but I am addicted to cheese to. I would be completely vegan, if I could give up cheese. I don’t eat as much of it; but it’s hard to give up. This cheese sounds delicious. I hadn’t seen the Happy Place packaging until now, just love it.

My Dad worked in the mountains of Peru in his twenties and came back with wonderful stories of the people and culture. I’d gift the trip to his grandson (my son). I love the long sleeve T for me!

My daughter touched my hand one day and said WOW your hand are so soft. I said It’s the Goats Milk Soap I’ve been using. She said share because I want my skin to feel that soft. So now she is hooked on the soap and other products that Beekman produces.
Thank You So Much for making wonderful products.
We feel the love.

Ghoast cheese because I love Blaak, and I haven’t tried Ghoast yet. I’d gift it to my daughter Susan (or I’d keep it for myself).
