Dr. Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell founded Beekman 1802 in 2008, now over ten years later, they work with over 300 local and regional artisans whose hands makeover 200 amazing and beautiful products for homes.

Brent and Josh consider themselves 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.” 

We are also excited to welcome back Laura LeBoutillier, founder of Garden Answer, a YouTube how-to gardening vlog filled with style, expertise, and gardening knowledge. She can’t wait to talk about all things Earthy, and share some of her expertise!
