Beltane Farm is home to a herd of over 80 dairy goats that are milked seasonally to produce milk, yogurt, and cheese that are widely available throughout the northeast. Beltane Farm is often noted as a smaller operation whose value-added products make a strong contribution to Connecticut agriculture.

The preservation of Beltane Farm has helped owners Paul Trubey and Mark Pearsall create a business that is financially viable and personally sustainalbe.

Connecticut Farmland Trust’s Acquisition Fund, Connecticut Department of Agriculture Community Farms Preservation Program, and the Town of Lebanon provided funding for the preservation.
