Redwood Hill Farm Recipes
Goat milk products are a natural in cooking! Enjoy these wonderful recipes, many courtesy of local Bay Area chefs, or experiment on your own. Try using Redwood Hill Farm goat milk yogurt or kefir in almost any recipe that calls for milk, cream, sour cream or buttermilk. The live cultures and lactic acid in yogurt and kefir helps marinate all types of meat. Commonly used to tenderize chicken (tandoori is fabulous, as is leg of lamb,) it would also be great for beef or chicken kabobs.
Redwood Hill Farm & Creamery owner Jennifer Bice has made many trips to France to study goat cheese making techniques. Her experiences resulted in the development of our beautiful French-style goat cheeses right here in Northern California.
The Cameo, California Crottin, and Bucheret artisan goat cheese pictured are all handmade with
imported French cheese cultures, and paired with classic French accompaniments. Bon appétit!
Redwood Hill Farm’s Smoked Cheddar goat cheese knocks it out of the park in a grilled cheese sandwich! Use your favorite hearty bread from a local bakery if you can. I used Full Circle Baking Company’s organic “Powerbread” with Walnuts, Almonds and Raisins. ~ from Nancy Lorenz
The number “8” is very lucky for the Chinese, so it’s not unusual to find a delicious dish with eight special ingredients on the table during Chinese New Year. Traditionally, eight ingredients like bamboo shoots, bean shoots and other “lucky” ingredients are stir-fried together to make something truly delicious.
You can choose any ingredients you love, but we like the crunch of the cucumbers, the slightly spicy radish wedges and the sweetness of the tomatoes when paired with the peanut and goat yogurt sauce. The egg ribbons add an Asian flavor to this salad, and the addition of fresh herbs give an added freshness with every bite. The carrots are also important since they are thought to bring luck.
Goat kefir and lemon cookies? Find yourself a goat cookie cutter, and make up a whole herd! These lovely cookies are made with our Redwood Hill Farm Goat Milk Kefir. They are fun to decorate, and have a delicious buttery-lemon flavor.

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 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!

Here’s a recipe for roasting rhubarb and using as a flavor add-in with Redwood Hill Farm Plain Goat Yogurt. I was excited to get this recipe as I’ve been growing fresh rhubarb in my Sonoma County garden for a couple of years now…and love using it in recipes! We hope you love it too. In addition, you can view Deb’s video for this recipe, SELECT HERE.
Enjoy! ~ Sharon

Earthy, sweet-tart flavor makes a surprising breakfast, elegant lunch or snack that strays far from the usual over-sweetened yogurt path.
Enjoy this new “summer grilling” recipe from one of our favorite bloggers, Cookin’ Canuck Dara Michalski. I’m looking forward to trying the chipotle lime yogurt sauce on grilled veges as well!

Where does this goat farmer get his energy?
Managing a goat dairy requires long days and stamina to keep everything running smoothly. This means getting up before dawn and working all day – and, during spring “kidding season,” into the night as well, welcoming new baby kids into the world. Where does Farm Manager Scott Bice get all his energy?
His secret weapon is his “No Kidding Around” Chore-Time Energy Smoothie.” This special concoction, featuring our wholesome goat milk kefir and Scott’s own custom nutrient-rich add-ins, will energize you in the morning and sustain you through work or play.
