It’s been a long, long, LONG seven months while we Beek-Heads waited for Season 2 of The Fabulous Beekman Boys to begin on Planet Green. Well, the wait is over and Brent, Josh, Farmer John, and that diva Polka Spot are hitting the airways tonight with even more goaty goodness.What started out as a simple show about sustainable living has morphed into a fruitful frenzy of fanatical fans following the boys via television, books (The Bucolic Plague), website, and even a goat-cam.
What makes this dynamic duo so, well, fabulous is how they make farming look rather fun. Even the most reluctant gardener, like myself, will want to start digging in the dirt. Truth be told, neither Josh or Brent are farmers in the purest sense, but they do have Farmer John to guide them on the more intricate tasks.
The boys create a plethora of products with the help of their fellow Sharon Springs town folk. Everything from goat’s milk soap to hand forged fruit spoons can be found either online or at the mercantile. A favorite and what initially drew The House Mouse’s attention to the show is the Beekman 1802 Blaak cheese. A tangy old world Italian-styled goat and cow’s milk cheese with a distinctive black ash rind, this fancy fromage is in a league all its own.
Be sure to tune in to Planet Green tonight, March 22 at 10:00pm for the premiere. If this season is anything like the last, it’s gonna be a crazy ride!
