Beekman 1802
I love watching "The Fabulous Beekman Boys", on Planet Green. So naturally, I want to try some of their stuff...

Beekman 1802 Blaak

Beekman 1802 Blaak is the first artisanal cheese produced from the goats at Beekman Farm. Blaak is an Italian-style semi-hard cheese made from a 60:40 mix of unpasteurized goat and cow milk giving the cheese a mild but distinctive flavor. In keeping with traditional cheesemaking practices, this rare cheese is aged for 4 months in our caves and is coated with ash at each turning to promote the ripening of the wheel. The resulting edible black rind gives the cheese its name and makes it a true conversation piece on your table

A Year in the Country Soap

This collection of 12 bars of soap captures our favorite fragrances from a year spent at BEEKMAN 1802. Each soap represents one month of the year, and recreates every moment from spring grass, to summer blossoms, to fresh garden vegetables, to autumn leaves, to winters by the fire and holiday baking. Thanks for sharing our year in the country with us.

JANUARY - Come along with us on a crisp, snowy day in the pine forest.
FEBRUARY - Romance blossoms with lots of Red Hots and warming Patchouli.
MARCH - The earth returns with the cleansing of clay and the smell of new grass.
APRIL - Wildflowers are the first brave blossoms of springtime.
MAY - Green, Green, Green. Spring is fully here, with every fresh scent imaginable.
JUNE - Oranges up north? No, but the ancient Mock-Orange hedgerow is in full bloom at the farm.
JULY - A walk through the herb garden, with thyme, mint, and more tasty summer favorites.
AUGUST - A lavender bath is sometimes essential on a hot summer night after chores.
SEPTEMBER - The garden in fall: tomato leaves, rosemary, and other woody scents.
OCTOBER - Apple wood in the fireplace and walks through autumn leaves.
NOVEMBER - It's time for sitting by the kitchen hearth and enjoying the smell of baking spices.
DECEMBER - Cutting down pine boughs for garland and returning home to warm cookies

BEEKMAN 1802 soap is handmade from the milk of the Beekman goats, who graze freely on the land and drink the waters that once made Sharon Springs one of the most famous spa destinations in the world. BEEKMAN 1802 soap uses the highest percentage of pure goat milk possible in each bar. You may notice a faint layer of ash on the bottom of the soap, which washes away with first use. This ash affirms the bar is made from pure goat milk using non-chemical methods. Because of the seasonality of our ingredients, there may be slight differences in color between all soaps.
