“Farming ain’t easy but we make farming fabulous.”
Planet Green’s fresh and irreverent series, The Fabulous Beekman Boys, puts a spotlight on urbanite couple Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell who leave everything behind in New York City as they attempt to become organic “gentleman farmers” at the fabulous Beekman Farm.
Brent (physician and ex-Martha Stuart exec) and Josh (author and former drag superstar) buy a farm in upstate NY and try to make their entrepreneurial venture a success without sacrificing their personal relationship. The farm is home to a menagerie that helps produce everything from egg white soap to cheese, but with Josh still living in the city to earn a paycheck and Brent living full time at the farm dealing with the day to day tasks, the couple have created a recipe for conflict. They try to make the most of their weekends together on the farm now that their getaway has become their latest project, but there’s always more work: be it a harvest weekend, book signing or launching a new flavor of cheese. There s a lot on the line but the “boys” are driven to fulfill their dreams and we get to peek at their insane life behind-the-scenes with this wonderfully wacky reality show.
