We’re celebrating a 45 year love affair with dairy goats!

In 1964, the Bice family moved from Los Angeles to Sonoma County and bought their first goat, “Flopsy” to provide milk for their evergrowing family . . . this was the beginning of their love for goats!  In 1968, a boutique milking parlor and bottling room was built on the family farm. The family began selling raw goat milk to local health food stores and Redwood Hill Farm was born. Then in 1978, the eldest daughter, Jennifer Lynn Bice and her partner Steven Schack, with little more than $250 each and a passion for dairy goats, take over the farm. Fast forward to 2013 and Redwood Hill Farm is celebrating its 45th anniversary!  Jennifer pledges the family’s commitment to producing delicious dairy products of the highest quality, while providing a sustainable environment and using practices that benefit the animals, the land, and the people.  Read the history timeline here!
