Redwood Hill Farm has been a family farm for over 45 years. It began in 1968 when our parents, Cynthia and Kenneth Bice (with then seven kids), moved from Los Angeles to Sonoma County and bought their very first goat named “Flopsy”. As a family and later under the leadership of oldest sister, Jennifer Bice, we have been making our cultured yogurt, kefir and artisan cheese for our goat milk loving customers since the early 1970’s. We invite you on a journey to follow our fresh goat milk as it travels from our Certified Humane® goat farm in Sebastopol, CA, to your neighborhood store.

The winter “eating” holidays are all about sharing with family and friends. Entertaining, a house full of party guests or perhaps simply a few intimate friends. Perhaps enjoying a few extra days at home with family and friends, or garnering “oohs and aahs” when you bring a platter of your favorites to a holiday potluck.

Whether you’re serving cheese as an appetizer or as part of your dessert course, have fun by using Redwood Hill Farm’s unique, delicious artisan cheeses and along with a few simple suggestions we’ve discovered over our more than 25+ years of crafting goat milk cheeses in the farmstead tradition.

This is a classic lemon cake recipe that owner Jennifer Bice has been making with her award-winning chèvre for years. Arrange your tiny lemon cakes on a pretty serving platter, dust with powdered sugar and garnish with slices of lemon. Based on a recipe from Judith Maguire, pastry chef at Lalime’s Restaurant in Berkeley, CA, this simple recipe is sure to become one of your favorites, too.

Easy entertaining!

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!
