Innovative idea by Redwood Hill Farm cheese team turned into new water saving process

This month’s kudos go to our cheese room team, who have come up with a new method of washing the feta molds and the 900 gallon vat.

Have no fear, it’s Redwood Hill Farm’s “Poster Girl” Zimba

If you happen to see a 7′ tall goat rolling down the highway, have no fear – it’s “Zimba” our Redwood Hill Farm Alpine poster girl gracing the side of a UNFI Distributor truck!  On one side of the truck is Zimba, with all our Redwood Hill Farm goat milk products, and on the other side, our Green Valley Organics lactose free dairy products.
