A day in Sharon Springs with the Beekman Boys....

This past Sunday, Mom and I went to Sharon Springs, NY to tour the Beekman Farm....


....the mansion was built in 1802...


...and the land is maintained and nurtured by these three men...


Josh......................................................Farmer John............................................Brent


 Farmer John fosters the goats....



...who took a liking to Mom...


...especially this one who kept nibbling on her!


Brent nurtures the flourishing flower gardens and Josh cultivates the vegetable garden that nourishes them throughout the year!


We were invited to taste the berries and cherries - and I caught Mom nibbling on a scallion!


The Beekman Mansion is a lovely home, sporting two USA flags, one that represents the year 1802 with only 15 stars, and our current flag....



....the back of the home has a lovely porch overlooking the flower gardens, fruit trees...



...and rolling hills (where they married)...


...a calming pond...


 ...with 2 chairs (However Brent says it's HIS "quiet" spot)...


....as we were saying goodbye... 


...we stopped in town at the Beekman 1802 Mercantile...


...and made a few purchases ~ sweet Alanna was working and she was just a delight to meet...


...and we also had a few laughs upstairs...


...and tasted delicious Goat Cheese Ice Cream, infused with alcohol ~ YUM!...


...from the Little Pink Elephants (Facebook) (Website) ~ visit them to see the delectable varieties and flavors they have created...


...by then we were famished...


...so we walked across the street to the American Hotel...


...which was built in 1847...


...and enjoyed Sunday brunch...


...and we had time to shop some more...


 ...and then we went exploring in Canajoharie to Wintergreen Park:


It was a fulfilled day with Mom and another little adventure crossed off my list!!

I am sure that Brent was saying "and check out Patti from Pandora's Box"

  5. What a fun adventure with your mom! My first visit to the farm was in 2011, and they have made a lot of progress. I always enjoy visiting Sharon Springs to see the unique architecture dating back to the time when the village was an internationally famous health spa.
