After discovering Beekman 1802, we ordered (along with a couple of bars of goat milk soap) Josh Kilmer-Purcell’s book, The Bucolic Plague: How Two Manhattanites Became Gentleman Farmers.
Loved this story. And while we won’t attempt a book review,
here’s an excerpt from the book jacket that sums it up pretty well…
“The Bucolic Plague is tart and sweet, touching and laugh out loud funny, a story about approaching middle age, being in a long-term relationship, realizing the city no longer feeds you in the same way it used to, and finding new depths of love and commitment
wherever you live.”
