Jun 20, 2019

Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Dr. Brent Ridge are the Co-Founders of Beekman 1802. Ridge began his career as a physician at Mt. Sinai in New York City and later launched the Health & Wellness division of Martha Stewart Omnimedia. Kilmer-Purcell was previously an award-winning advertising executive and New York Times bestselling author of three books. 

The pair founded Beekman 1802 in 2008 after purchasing the historic Beekman farm in Sharon Springs, NY, where they started making goat milk soaps and gourmet cheeses. Today the company has over 130 employees and is recognized as one of the most successful lifestyle brands in America by Nasdaq, Inc magazine & The Wall Street Journal.  

Ridge and Kilmer-Purcell have been featured in countless media and business outlets. As the stars of “The Fabulous Beekman Boys” they were the first gay couple to star in their own television series on a national network. They also competed and won “The Amazing Race” on CBS. OUT Magazine has included them on their Top 100 Influential LGBT List, and they received Farmer of the Year recognition from the US Secretary of Agriculture. 

Kilmer-Purcell and Ridge continue to reside on their farm in Sharon Springs, NY.
