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 and goat milk yogurt. Our Oberhasli, La Mancha and Saanen goats are milked twice daily and provide the milk for our cheese.
