The Boys are Back and Giveaway!!!

































The Fabulous Beekman Boys are back at Sharon Springs New York, at least for a holiday spread in December's Country Living! For those who haven't yet discovered the show on Planet Green, City Slickers Josh Kilmer Purcell and Brent Ridge went out and bought an bucolic Upstate New York farmhouse as a weekend house. Then lost their jobs. But their inspiring story of creating a chemical free goat soap and cheese making business on the heels of nearly losing their shirts makes for a terrific read if you haven't picked up "The Bucolic Plague" for your Christmas stockings. It was my favorite read this summer. So as a Thanksgiving gift to one of my readers, I am giving away one copy of the book! Please leave a comment and one will be picked at random Friday at 9pm November 26th. Please do not email directly. I will then mail out the next day after contacting the luck winner. Good luck Gobblers!

I already own the book, so don't pick my comment. I just wanted to say how much I love these two. They are so great, and if you ever get a chance to go to Sharon Springs--DO IT! It's such a cute town.

I would love to get there! Do you live in the Hudson Valley? I go up every chance I get but yet to get to Sharon Springs. I'm jealous if you know the guys!!

We don't have cable but I still regularly check the planet green website.
I'm sure this book would be a very interesting read :-)
