Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge Bio

When Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Dr. Brent Ridge bought the Beekman Farm in upstate New York in 2008, they didn't just start a farm, they started a movement. A mere five years later they already have a hit TV show, bestselling books, product lines in leading retailers, a massive social following, and a James Beard nominated lifestyle website. They've been featured in most major media outlets, including The New York Times, USA Today, Vanity Fair, The Martha Stewart Show, Rolling Stone, Dr. Oz, Vogue, The Rosie O'Donnell Show, O Magazine, and more.

Known best as "The Fabulous Beekman Boys" from their hit television reality show, the duo has put their stylish stamp on seasonal living. Their farm and surrounding community serves as the inspiration for their lifestyle brand, "Beekman 1802." The brand's signature beauty, home & food products can be found on the shelves of Henri Bendel, Anthropologie, Williams-Sonoma and other national retail partners. The Beekman 1802 cookbook was launched on QVC to record sales, and the memoir of their farm life, The Bucolic Plague, was a national best seller. The 2011 launch of their Beekman 1802 Blaak Cheese resulted in a wait-list of over 7500 people.
