We Met the Fabulous Beekman Boys!

Tom and Rob with the Beekman 1802 Boys at Beekman Boys in Washington, DC!
On Saturday, March 9, we met Josh and Brent, otherwise known as the Fabulous Beekman Boys at Williams-Sonoma in Chevy Chase, Md. We've been fans of theirs since we saw them on the Amazing Race last season. They're a gay married couple in NY that runs a goat farm! They also have a cooking show on Cooking Channel, and won the Amazing Race last season, and sell home products...

Brent and Josh
    I gave them my first book on ghosts and learned they have a few in their old farmhouse. They were so warm and friendly. What great guys!  
The Fabulous Beekman Boys is a reality television show produced in the United States by World of Wonder Productions. The series follows Josh Kilmer-Purcell and his partner Brent Ridge as they learn how to become farmers and launch their lifestyle brand, Beekman 1802. Brent, a physician who previously worked for Martha Stewart Omnimedia, lives at the farm full-time, while Josh, a New York Times bestselling author, commuted from their apartment in New York City on the weekends. The show originally aired on Planet Green, one of the Discovery Networks, but was acquired by Cooking Channel, a network owned by Scripps Network Interactive in 2012.  Once they won the Amazing Race and the million dollars, they were able to pay off the farm and be together.
     Touted as a "gay Green Acres",[1] the series chronicles the couple's trials and tribulations as novice farmers, aided by their caretaker and resident farmer John Hall, or "Farmer John." Hall brought his goats to the Beekman Farm shortly after Ridge and Kilmer-Purcell purchased it in 2007. Also featured is Polka Spot, the farm's llama. Other residents of Sharon Springs, New York are also included in the cast, including Doug Plummer and Garth Roberts, owners of the American Hotel.
 

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
