We are proud to announce that Redwood Hill Farm & Creamery is receiving special recognition from PG&E and Solar Sonoma County as one of the North Bay’s top ten business leaders in sustainable business practices!
Redwood Hill Farm has demonstrated sustainability leadership here in Sonoma County by installing a 586 kW DC solar electric system, providing 100% of energy used at our Sebastopol organic creamery. The solar system covers nearly 2 acres of roof space using 2,500 solar panels made in California. The CO2 reduced annually is equal to 110 acres of trees saved, 54 cars off the road, or 76 homes powered. Our Certified Humane� goat dairy is solar powered too.
“By installing our solar system we offset in a much greater percentage, the transportation costs of distributing our natural goat and lactose free cow milk dairy products. This is very important to us.”

Here’s a new take on “Grilled Cheese!” Santa Cruz’s New Leaf Market has come up with a fabulous idea for the grill using our Redwood Hill Camellia melted atop a soaked cedar plank. Topped with apricots and local honey, it’s sure to be a Summer hit! See our recipe site for the complete recipe and directions.
