Cocktails & Cuddles: Happy hour with baby goats! – March 2 from 6-8pm – SOLD OUT!!

No, you’re not dreaming. All of your wishes have finally come true and your TWO FAVORITE THINGS are happening at the very same time: happy hour and baby goats!!!

Come relax after a crazy work week with a pile of Bee Tree babies and your favorite beverage. Although this event is BYOB (we will provide bottle openers and cups), your ticket will include one glass of a TX Keeper Cider, cheese and cracker snacks, and ample opportunity to bottle feed and snuggle the baby goats. Folks are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner and relax on the lawn while the babies use you as a pillow (or jungle gym. Just depends). Baby goats are scientifically proven to remedy road rage and depression from endless hours in a cubicle, so don’t miss your chance to snag a little after work therapy! You in?

Honey and Cheese Pairings Class – March 11 from 2-4pm

Two Hives Honey and Bee Tree Farm & Dairy are once again combining their passions for bees, honey, goats, and cheese at this annual honey and cheese pairing class! This is a rare opportunity to taste a variety of local artisanal honey and Texas cheeses on a working dairy and goat farm! The class will be led by Tara Chapman, Owner and head beekeeper with Two Hives Honey and Jenna Kelly-Landes, owner/farmer/cheesemaker with Bee Tree Farm & Dairy. During the tasting, Tara will explain the process of how honey bees make honey, what responsibly harvesting honey entails, and the essential role bees play in all aspects of farming and food.  Jenna will explain the art of turning a pasture full of goats into cheese. Also? We will have lots (and lots and lots) of baby goats to snuggle!!

TOURS

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.

Price: $10/person

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.
