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.”

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.”

Goat yogurt is high in calcium, and naturally low in lactose so it doesn’t mess with my stomach.”

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.

June is National Dairy Month
By Tamara Duker Freuman, MS, RD, CDN
June is National Dairy Month, and the Who’s Who of dairy are out in droves reminding us all about the health benefits of cow’s milk. And while I have nothing but love for the cows, I thought I’d highlight the unsung heroes of dairy, instead: goats. After all, the most common dairy consumed worldwide is actually goat’s milk!
