Welcome to the Beltane Farm website


Beltane Farm makes a variety of artisanal, farmstead goat milk cheese on our farm in Lebanon, Connecticut. Although our award winning fresh Chevre is our most popular cheese, we also make a number of fine French style ripened cheeses as well as Feta. Our Oberhasli, La Mancha and Saanen goats are milked twice daily and provide the milk for our cheese.

Our website is currently being worked on again. In the meantime you can place orders for pick up at the farmers market near you or for pick up at the farm.
