A lot of people go on vacation for Winter Break. But when the snow melts, we go for a walk around the farm to catalog our own Winter Breakage. Winters are particularly brutal at Beekman. They cause a lot of damage. But since most of it is covered up by snow we don’t discover it until first melt.
We know that many people have a vision of Beekman 1802 Farm as an amazing place where everything is polished and perfect. It’s not. By any stretch. Especially after winter. So we thought we’d take you on a walk with us and show you exactly how imperfect things can get around here. It can get downright ugly.
But you know what? We’re happy that Beekman 1802 Farm isn’t flawless. Nothing that’s 216-years-old could ever be “perfect.”
Sure, it would be simpler to live in a new high-rise building, with nothing to repair, ever. (And believe us…we’ve fantasized about that plenty of times.) But then we’d have nothing to do, and nothing to complain about – which are two very important things to have in life. One keeps you busy, and the other keeps you grounded.
