I’m a sucker for packaging. Sometimes it pays off. Recently, at one of my favorite lunchtime haunts, I discovered soaps by Beekman 1802. The farm of the same name, located in Sharon Springs, New York, has only been around just under two years but judging from their website, they’ve got a lot going on. The small sustainable farm raises goats and makes soaps and cheese from their organic milk. I bought the “Year in the Country”set of 12 goat milk soaps which has a bar for every month of the year, each of which is scented using seasonal ingredients. Each bar is sweetly wrapped in brown paper, stamped and tied up with bakery string. I bought two year’s worth. They were on sale!
The farm itself looks amazing and Tali and I are feeling inspired to pay them a visit sooner than later, so stay tuned.
