Rural Hamlet Gets Resurgence Thanks to ‘Fabulous’ Goat Farmers
By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith
hollywoodnews.com: The hamlet of Sharon Springs, New York is getting its own version of a Hollywood premiere this weekend, with a big-screen unveiling of the first episode of Planet Green’s ‘The Fabulous Beekman Boys’ — which begins June 16 for everyone else.
‘There’s a big garden party festival, the grand opening of our first 1802 retail shop right in the village, and at five o’clock, our world premiere,’ right in the high school auditorium. So reports Dr. Brent Ridge, who stars in the unique reality show with partner Josh Kilmer-Purcell.
The couple came up from NYC in 2006 and discovered an 1802 mansion, found out it was for sale and went on to buy it and launch a successful goat farm and green lifestyle company. They’ve sparked the town’s resurgence and much more. Both are hyper-successful Manhattanites. Ridge is as an Assistant Clinical Professor at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and was formerly Vice President of Healthy Living at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.
Kilmer-Purcell is known as the best-selling author (his ‘I’m Not Myself these Days’ is on its way to becoming a scripted series in its own right) who’s performed all over the world as drag queen Aqua (with live goldfish swimming in little bowls in his bra!).
