The Honorable William Beekman

BEEKMAN 1802 is an integrated media and lifestyle company devoted to the artisanal, the hand-made, and to the belief that each season gives us cause for celebration.  The company is centered around the 200 year old Beekman Farm in upstate NY originally built by William Beekman in 1802.  Beekman was the first judge of Schoharie County, NY, and at the turn of the 19th century one of the most successful merchants in central New York.  The attention to detail and quality to the products in his original mercantile is what influences the products we design and sell today.

BEEKMAN 1802 is committed to environmental sustainability,  supporting local micro-economies, and developing debt-free business models.

 

OUR MISSION

At Beekman 1802, we believe in making heirlooms.  We believe that heirlooms are anything that has an emotional value greater than its monetary one. Whenever we are designing something, we always think about whether it has that quality. If it’s a food product, it has to be something so unique that you’d want to share it. If it’s a product for the home, it has to be something made with such quality that it will last to the next generation. Even our recipes are meant to be so simple and delicious that you’ll make them over and over again for your family, thus making them heirlooms for your table.
