2012 Harvest Fest in Sharon Springs
A little over an hour east of Utica, sits a small quaint town in the center of New York State that is featured in its very own reality television show. “The Fabulous Beekman Boys” is set in the town of Sharon Springs, New York and follows the lives of two city boys who have moved to the country to reinvent themselves as farmers and entrepreneurs. Josh Kilmer-Purcell and his partner Brent Ridge have created the lifestyle brand Beekman 1802 which they slap on everything from cookbooks to goat’s milk soap. Over the weekend, Scott and I and a couple of great friends traveled down to Sharon Springs to partake in the town’s annual Harvest Fest. The festival featured vendors selling everything from pickles and pumpkins to clothing and jewelry, not to mention celebrity appearances by the Fabulous Beekman Boys themselves. Every inch of the town was dripping with pumpkins, mums and cornstalks, it was truly a visual delight. Highlights of our day included chatting with the locals, seeing the live birds of prey at the bird rescue exhibit and ending the day with a glass of wine at the gorgeous American Hotel. Here are some of our favorite shots from the day, and a clip from the popular show “The Fabulous Beekman Boys”. For a visual treat, check out the Beekman Boys’ website: http://beekman1802.com/.
