Beltane Farm offers day long classes in Goat Husbandry!
Spend a day at the farm and learn about goats and their care. New classes are scheduled for Saturday April 23rd and May 21st 2016 from 8:00am-3:30pm. This multifaceted class will cover the care of goats across the life span and will provide hands on practice in the areas of milking, hoof trimming and injections. In terms of how to care for baby goats, the class will also teach you the ins and outs of the kids and if the weather holds, we will be teaching you how to herd goats. After the outdoor portion of the class is complete, we will head inside and learn how to make delectable cheeses from scratch. The cost of the class is 150.00 per person, and the class only holds a maximum of six participants. Deposits for the class are required, so if you are interested, please contact Paul at 860-208-2887 for more information or send an email to email@example.com. We hope to see you then!

Beltane Farm takes visitors on casual cheese tours
From The Day, December 10, 2014:
Paul Trubey, owner of Beltane Farm in Lebanon, describes his goat cheese tastings as being very similar to wine tastings but more laid back.
“Hopefully people won’t show up dressed up! It’s very informal,” he jokes.
The farm has hosted tastings every Sunday since early fall and they end Dec. 21. Cheese aficionados are invited to the farm’s tasting house – decorated for the holidays – where complimentary warm local cider heated on a wood stove is served along with an array of fresh farm cheeses, all made on premises from goat’s milk.
