It all started with our first bar of goat milk soap. Back in 2008, a local heritage soap maker masterfully hand-batched our first ever bar of soap from the confines of her own cottage, and from there Beekman 1802 introduced to a vibrant local community of talented craftspeople filled with passion and potential. Now, over 10 years later, a community of over 300 artisans are still at the heart of everything they do, and are the genius behind the 200+ handcrafted products you all have grown to love so much. Our neighbors (that’s you) have made a huge impact on our tiny rural economy. We thank you, and the artisans thank you.
