William Beekman built his “mansion” for his wife, Joanna, and their 10 children in 1802. In addition to owning the farm, he also ran a successful onsite mercantile. He was known as such a “fair” man that he was appointed the county’s first judge.
The Flower Garden
Our flower garden was designed to seamlessly blend both modern and heirloom varieties, with a special emphasis on botanical ingredients for skincare. Many of the specimens have been propagated for several centuries.
Josh & Brent’s favorite spot to sit on the farm, the pond offers the most glowing view of the house, barn & goats at sunset.
The Vegetable Garden
We grow almost 100% of our food from over 108 varieties of heirloom fruits and vegetables. All crops are grown completely organically and with non-gmo seeds.
The Big Tree
The stately Sugar Maple trees that line the front of the Beekman house were likely planted when the home was first built in 1802. They’ve proudly stood through 200 years of changing seasons, nesting birds and playing children.
While the farm itself is over 200 years old, the barn was built in the early 1900s. Originally built as a cow dairy barn, now it’s home to Farmer John’s 100+ goats.
The bees in our 42 hives help pollinate all 59 acres of the farm’s organically managed pastures and gardens. The raw honey they produce goes into many of our products.

The history of this farm is the history of William Beekman, who built the farm in 1802. He was orphaned at sea, a child soldier in the Revolutionary War, and a businessman who grew his business with such integrity that he rose from humble beginnings to be the first judge of Schoharie County and a Senator—all without any formal education.
