I adore the Beekman 1802 Boys. I first heard of them when they had a show on the Planet Green called the Fabulous Beekman Boys. Mom and I have been following them on facebook and we even visited them in New York 2 years ago for their Harvest Festival. AT the festival we got to tour the farm and meet the boys at their store in Sharon Springs NY.
We bought t-shirts to support their endeavor on the Amazing Race.They won!!!
I also bought some spaghetti sauce on our visit. Sales from this sauce were going to help farmers pay their mortgages. I thought that was a great idea! The tomatoes they use are a variety called Mortgage Lifters. I had no idea what I was in for when I first tasted the Mortgage Lifter Sauce. I tasted heaven. It is the most wonderful, freshest sauce I have ever had, and I have made sauce from tomatoes I have grown in my own little garden. Needless to say I was excited to get an email the other day about my favorite sauce, The Mortgage Lifter, will be available in select Target stores. Luckily I live in an area where I could feasibly drive to 4 Target stores. I was in luck, the store closest to me in Exton, PA was stocking it. Off I went. I bought 2 jars of the delicious sauce and enjoyed it for dinner.
