Local natural foods market features Redwood Hill Farm in store news

Tell us about Redwood Hill Farm…

Redwood Hill Farm is a family owned business that produces natural goat milk yogurt, kefir, and artisan cheese in our Sebastopol solar-powered creamery. We have a beautiful herd of dairy goats on our Humane Certified® farm just a few miles from our creamery. We’re happy to mention that our farm is now solar powered as well!

How did the farm get started?

It was the beginning of the back-to-the-land movement, and my parents who had grown up in Southern California wanted to give a more rural lifestyle to their family. They bought an abandoned apple orchard in Sebastopol and moved us onto the land in 1964. As soon as the house was finished, my dad and grandpa built a small barn and we got our first goats (and chickens)!

We joined a local 4-H club and participated in lots of ‘projects’, but the goats quickly became everyone’s favorites. By 1968 we had given our small farm a name, Redwood Hill Farm. By the early 1970’s dad had built a small block dairy barn and we began bottling and selling raw milk in glass bottles to the then new natural food stores.

Buy Local: An Array of Farm Products Are Just a Click Away

From goat milk caramels to herb-infused soap, find out about America’s homespun harvest.

“It’s a locavore age, with many consumers deeply invested in the source and story behind everything from their face cream to their goat’s milk gouda. As food trends shift back to the land, farm-fresh products are gaining more traction. Family-owned farms offer a remedy to faceless corporations, and offer products crafted with consideration and care. From the old-world Italian “pork butter” (aka spallacia) created at Iowa’s La Quercia to the natural beauty products concocted by high-end Rhode Island apothecary Farmaesthetics, it’s a good time to celebrate the homegrown goodness offered up at farms across the country.”

The Times-Herald Newspaper Interviews David Bice on Goat Milk

The Times-Herald Interviews David Bice, Redwood Hill Farm

Goat Milk? Meet David Bice of Redwood Hill Farm, ambassador of foods made from the milk of frolicking goats

By Rayne Wolfe

Last summer, while helping to serve up dinner at a Sonoma County Farm Bureau fundraiser, a gentleman swore to David Bice that not only did he dislike goat cheese; he hated it. This didn’t worry Bice, who has run into bad culinary attitudes before at store demos and natural food trade shows.

“Often, this is a result of tasting a poorly made goat cheese many years ago, or goat milk that wasn’t fresh, at sometime way in their past,” said Bice. “Once a person gets past that negative ‘taste memory’ of long ago, and tastes whatever we make with an open mind, they are almost always pleasantly surprised.” 

Elite Runner Lauren Fleshman Chooses Redwood Hill Farm Goat Yogurt

“I’m picky about my yogurt. I want it minimally processed, sweetish but low in sugar (and no cheating with fake sugars), high in protein, creamy and not from a giant cow-milking factory (that grosses me out). Goat yogurt is high in calcium, and naturally low in lactose so it doesn’t mess with my stomach.”

Wall Street Journal Features David Bice of Redwood Hill Farm as the “Goat Whisperer”

We Are Sonoma County – The Goat Whisperer

by Heather Irwin

Cult-worthy pinots and locally sourced menus are a given. But it’s the people that give Sonoma County a flavor all its own.

There’s an edgy vibe to its cultural scene and eclectic collection of towns and villages, which is a reflection of the people who call Sonoma County home — the entrepreneurial cast and crew who till the soil, grow the grapes (and milk the goats), have made the region’s award-winning wine and food scene what it is today. As original as Sonoma County itself, they bring to life a quirky sensibility, and an energy that is captivating and contagious.
