The Bucolic Plague: How Two Manhattanites Became Gentlemen Farmers: An Unconventional Memoir


Josh Kilmer-Purcell


  • Josh writes about the story of how he ended up buying a 200 year old mansion with 60 acres in New York state with his partner Brent
  • This book is clear about the ups and downs of owning land, ageing buildings and the pressure it puts on finances and relationships
  • Beekman 1802 is now a brand that has helped revitalized Sharon Springs (the closest town to the mansion) with a Mercantile and festivals attended by thousands of visitors
  • The author is funny and the book is enjoyable to read (it’s also available as an audiobook)
