Real Simple Magazine editors name Redwood Hill Farm Goat Milk Yogurt winner in its national Yogurt Road Test

The choice of yogurts can be overwhelming for consumers, so the editors of Real Simple Magazine took it upon themselves to find the “cream of the crop.” In the “Traditional” category, Redwood Hill Farm was named head of the herd as “Best Goat
Milk Yogurt.” Its sister brand, Green Valley Organics received “Best Lactose Free Yogurt” honors.

“We are honored and thrilled that the Real Simple editors chose both of our yogurt brands as winners in their yogurt road test,” said Jennifer Bice, owner, Redwood Hill Farm & Creamery. “We take great pride in how are products are made and the ingredients we use. All of our products are made at our solar powered, Green Business certified creamery using only the highest quality milk from goats and cows raised on Certified Humane farms. We keep our ingredient list short and, well, simple.”

Recipe: Chèvre Orange Pound Cake

RedwoodHillFarm_ChevrePoundCake

I am always eager to try new pound cake recipe AND really love the recipe ideas and videos online at IFood TV. So when I saw a pound cake recipe in their newsletter recently, made with ricotta cheese, I immediately knew I had to try the recipe with our fresh chevre. Creamy and smooth with a similar texture to ricotta, I had a feeling Redwood Hill Farm Plain Chèvre would be a good swap.

And was it ever! The cake was dense, moist, with a lovely bright orange fragrance. The flavor was unique and rich and had me longing for a second piece. I brought the cake into the creamery office for a taste test and everyone agreed, soooooo good!

That cake was gone almost immediately.
