Adult Summer Camp Series: Preserving the Season with Confituras – June 11 from 2:00pm-4:00pm
Confituras, local jam-maker extraordinaire, is heading to Bee Tree Farm & Dairy for an afternoon of preserving the bounty of early summer fruits and flavors! Led by the owner of Confituras, Stephanie Mcclenny, we will learn how to pickle fruit and prepare flavored, seasonal salts, then pair these delights with the fresh, farmstead goat milk cheeses produced at Bee Tree Farm & Dairy. Participants are encouraged to BYOB and everyone will go home with their own jar of pickled fruit and a seasonal salt made in class. The afternoon will end with plenty of time for a walk in the pasture with the dairy goats. Goat kisses are included in the price of the ticket.
DATE NIGHT: A Walk with the Goats – June 17 from 6:00pm – 8:30pm
There’s no better way to unwind after a busy work week than to wander up a hillside with your favorite date and a herd of sassy goats just as the sun starts to set and the fireflies start twinkling. BYOB and we’ll do the rest, including serving our fresh cheeses along with fruits and breads at picnic tables on the hill top for sunset views and all the caprine entertainment your weary heart desires.
It is very important to us to share our farm with our customers and anyone interested in visiting a small, sustainable dairy farm! Unfortunately, our farm commitments make it difficult to host individual tours. We will periodically open the farm to the public through open farm days, however we can schedule small, private group tours with a minimum of six individuals. A one hour tour will include a short walk in the pasture with the goats and a walk through the dairy and milk parlor. Arrangements can also be made for school and youth group tours. Please contact Jenna to discuss details and availability.
RENT THE WORKSHOP at BEE TREE FARM
Located just 15 miles east of Austin, the Workshop is a rustic and intimate space that is intended as a place for learning, creating, and sharing great food! Large enough to comfortably seat up to 25 folks, this 14×30 foot building has been intentionally finished with a rough and rustic interior filled with antique materials salvaged from other homes and barns across the great state of Texas. We love a good story and this gathering space tells a tale of days long past through the warmth and patina of ancient barns, dance halls and creaky old Texas farm homes. The space comes complete with a small (working!) vintage refrigerator, a very clean and modern composting toilet and bathroom with beautiful vintage hand sinks and long stainless steel tables and metal stools. In addition to the indoor space, two 15′ wooden tables are situated just outside, overlooking the goat pasture, which are perfect for outdoor meetings or picnics. The space is ideal for offsite meetings, tea parties, bridal or baby showers, and may be used as a space for artisans to teach classes! We hope you’ll consider The Workshop at Bee Tree Farm when searching for a small venue for your gathering. Please contact Jenna to discuss details and pricing.
