ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
Dr. Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell founded Beekman 1802 in 2008. But they actually consider ourselves to be a 211-year-old company. When they stumbled across the Beekman Farm in upstate New York, they had no plans to create a business around it. They started making goat milk soaps and gourmet cheeses in 2008 and one thing led to another...now they 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, they were inspired by the land and the community to build something lasting.
Brent is a physician, co-founder of Beekman 1802, and television personality. He was formerly the Vice President of Healthy Living for Martha Stewart Omnimedia.
Josh is a writer, co-founder of Beekman 1802, and television personality. He's known for his New York Times and National bestselling memoirs; The Bucolic Plague and I Am Not Myself These Days.
