We’ve set our annual Farm Tour dates and hope to see you
Mark your calendars and please join us this year as we celebrate life on our goat farm. Our dates have been set, and we hope you will be able to join us in beautiful west Sonoma County, a truly magical place in springtime.
We’d like to wish our customers,
friends and colleagues all the best in 2015.
Thanks for being part of our fun and success in 2014. From our annual Spring Farm Tours to all the community and national events we shared with you,
it was a great year.
Please visit us online often in the upcoming year for the latest news from our farm and creamery. Also, if you haven’t already, we invite you to join our “Goat Club” by signing up for the Redwood Hill Farm newsletter and be the very first to receive special recipes, images, and promotions all year long…enjoy!
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.
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 & Creamery’s Bucheret Goat Cheese and Plain Goat Milk Kefir Win at 2014 American Cheese Society Competition
We are honored to announce that our Bucheret Goat Milk Cheese and our Plain Goat Milk Kefir won second place at this year’s prestigious American Cheese Society’s Judging and Competition in Sacramento. Bucheret placed second in the Goat’s Milk Cheese Aged 31-60 Days category and the Plain Goat Milk Kefir placed second in the “All Milks” Kefir, Drinkable Yogurt, Buttermilk and Other Drinkable Cultured Products category, amid nearly 1,700 entries from 248 companies in the overall competition.
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.
