Randleman native is one of "The Fabulous Beekman Boys"

More than once, Happiness has thought of going all Green Acres -- chucking this city life for the simpler pleasures of farm living.

And now we role models. Premiering tonight is "The Fabulous Beekman Boys" (Planet Green, 9 pm), a docu-series chronicling Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Dr. Brent Ridge, a couple who bought a farm in upstate New York and created an organic life (with goats, goat's milk cheese and pigs) and an organic lifestyle brand "Beekman 1802."

The show is funny and personal, following the guys as they navigate this new venture and new life. Though a doctor, Ridge does know a little something about farming. He's a native of Randleman, a small town near Asheboro, and he says his grandparents and his mom are great gardeners. "You know how tough that red clay in North Carolina is. I learned how to coax tomatoes out of almost anything."
