About The Founders

We founded Beekman 1802 in 2008. But we actually consider ourselves to be a 211-year-old company. When we stumbled across the Beekman Farm in upstate New York, we had no plans to create a business around it. We started making goat milk soaps and gourmet cheeses in 2008 and one thing led to another...now we are proud to have over 180 employees and be recognized as one of the most successful lifestyle brands in America by Nasdaq, Inc Magazine & The Wall Street Journal. Like Judge William Beekman, who originally built the farm over 200 years ago, we were inspired by the land and the community to build something lasting.

Brent is a physician, co-founder of Beekman 1802, and television personality. He was formerly the Vice President of Healthy Living for Martha Stewart Omnimedia.

"We like to think that the values that made William Beekman's original Mercantile a success are still valid today."

- Dr Brent Ridge

Josh is a writer, co-founder of Beekman 1802, and television personality. He's known for his New York Times and National bestselling memoirs; The Bucolic Plague and I Am Not Myself These Days.

"We believe that we'll never ever go wrong as long as we treat every single person like they're our next-door neighbor."
