Jennifer began showing and learning about dairy goats as Sonoma County 4-H member

In 1978, Jennifer Lynn Bice assumed ownership of Redwood Hill Farm & Creamery, Inc., the family farm and Grade A goat dairy the Bice family started in Sonoma County in 1968, and never looked back. Along with her late husband, Steven Schack, Jennifer expanded the business to produce a greater variety of goat milk products, and diversified the dairy goat-breeding program.

Today Redwood Hill Farm is owned and operated by Jennifer, along with five of her siblings that worked to establish Redwood Hill Farm in the 1960′s.  In addition, more than 50 dedicated employees now run the day-to-day operations at the Certified Humane® farm and state-of-the-art organic creamery in Sebastopol. Promoting the benefits of goat milk products and developing a genetics program of excellence for the Redwood Hill Farm herd remain her top priorities, and this commitment has positioned Redwood Hill Farm at the forefront of the dairy goat industry.

I just love this simple yet elegant flavor pairing of Rosemary Honey and creamy, Redwood Hill Farm Plain Goat Yogurt created for us by the Tomato Tart, I think you will too.

The recipe calls for 24 oz. of Redwood Hill Farm Goat Milk Yogurt but as Redwood Hill Fans know, our tubs of yogurt are in the one quart size. Reserve the additional 8 oz. of yogurt for another recipe.

Very easy and satisfying…enjoy!

When we discovered Joy the Baker and these Feta & Sour Cream Scones from her website, I simply could not resist testing this recipe and sharing. I brought these little gems into the office this morning, warm out of the oven all buttery and flaky—yum! Needless to say they were gone in a flash! This is a great recipe. I used our sister-brand Green Valley Organics Lactose Free Sour Cream and fresh chives from my garden.
