The Fabulous Beekman Boys
I have become completely obsessed with Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge of Planet Green’s The Fabulous Beekman Boys. If you haven’t kept up with your TiVo, these guys are total city-slicker New Yorkers that have moved upstate to try to revive a farm and create a new organic lifestyle brand, ‘Beekman 1802‘. Brent Ridge is a hysterical perfectionist that lives full-time at the farm after resigning at VP of Heathy Living for Martha Stewart Omnimedia and Josh Kilmer-Purcell commutes on the weekends from NYC where he still works for an advertising/marketing firm. Together they have built the empire “Beekman 1802,” using goods from their own farm to offer a decadent array of ash-coated artisanal cheese, goat milk soaps, and sustainable home goods.
