New at Target: Beekman 1802 Farm Pantry

Fresh food advocates and farmers Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge - better known as the Cooking Channel’s “The Fabulous Beekman Boys” - are teaming up with Target to bring to you 48 exclusive Beekman 1802 Farm Pantry products, just in time for the holiday season.

According to A Bullseye View, it all starts with what’s harvested on the farms. From heirloom tomato pasta sauces and goat cheese salad dressing to hand-rolled granola, each product features recipes developed by Josh and Brent plus locally grown ingredients. Better yet, with every Beekman 1802 Farm Pantry purchase, a percentage of profits go back to small farms.

“Having Target as part of this project was really critical to its success,” said Brent. “We had been making small-scale artisanal food products from our farms and from neighboring farms for almost five years. But it wasn’t until we started working with Target that we got the opportunity to source more farm fresh ingredients, reach more people and begin to make an even bigger difference.”

Look for the new Beekman 1802 Farm Pantry collection to hit and 900 stores nationwide this week, with 300 more stores to be added in January.
