Our favorite smoothie tastes like pumpkin pie in a glass—without the guilt of buttery pastry and whipped cream.
This rich, chocolaty cake gets its moist crumb from our Green Valley Organics brand lactose free sour cream. The Cherry Vanilla Yogurt Sauce is made with our Redwood Hill Farm Vanilla Goat Milk Yogurt. Makes 8 adorable heart-shaped individual cakes or one bundt cake.

Fun to make, and fun to eat! Kids love to help make raspberry-honey “cheese.” Just mix in the berries and honey and drain overnight. Serve with gingersnap cookies.

Be sure to have some fresh bagels on hand when making this delicious herbed goat milk yogurt “cream cheese.”
Innovative idea by Redwood Hill Farm cheese team turned into new water saving process
We’re so proud of our Cheese Team! Every month at the creamery, we give awards to employees who come up with innovative ideas and procedures for recycling and conservation. This month’s kudos go to our cheese room team, who have come up with a new method of washing the feta molds and the 900 gallon vat. The new process they developed will save 34,000 gallons of water per season! Shown left to right are the fine folks that hand-craft our beautiful goat cheeses: Roselia, Susana, Luciano, Patty, Maribel, and Erick.
