Recipe: Chèvre Orange Pound Cake

Written by Sharon Bice on . Posted in Recipes

RedwoodHillFarm_ChevrePoundCake

I am always eager to try new pound cake recipe AND really love the recipe ideas and videos online at IFood TV. So when I saw a pound cake recipe in their newsletter recently, made with ricotta cheese, I immediately knew I had to try the recipe with our fresh chevre. Creamy and smooth with a similar texture to ricotta, I had a feeling Redwood Hill Farm Plain Chèvre would be a good swap.

And was it ever! The cake was dense, moist, with a lovely bright orange fragrance. The flavor was unique and rich and had me longing for a second piece. I brought the cake into the creamery office for a taste test and everyone agreed, soooooo good!

That cake was gone almost immediately.

Recipe: Plain Chèvre “Perpetual Goatstopper”

Written by Sharon Bice on . Posted in Recipes

Perry Soulos_PrepsPerfectBiteChevre

The “Perfect Bite” winner at the first West Coast Cheesemonger Invitational (CMI) at Public Works in San Francisco on January 19 was an unlikely, but delicious combination of flavors and texture that just worked. “The Perpetual Goatstopper” was the creation of Cheesemonger Perry Soulos of Arrowine and Cheese in Arlington, VA, who paired our award-winning plain chèvre with grapes, candied ginger and Burstin’ Berry Poppin’ Pebbles™ breakfast cereal to create his unique, eye-catchingly delicious perfect bite.

“I really wanted to do something different and fun with my perfect bite,” said Soulos. “When we first received the list of cheeses to choose from, I went right for Redwood Hill Farms’ Traditional Plain Chèvre. I knew the product very well from my years behind the cheese counter and thought it would be the perfect choice for a California-inspired cheese bite. Its decadent and rich flavor and clean lemony tang make it very versatile in the kitchen.

Recipe: Green Bean Casserole with Smoked Redwood Hill Farm Goat Cheese and Fennel

Written by Nancy Lorenz on . Posted in Company News

Update your classic holiday green bean casserole, using our goat cheese, lactose free sour cream, and fresh, in-season fennel and green beans.

“As a kid, my very favorite Thanksgiving dish was the green bean casserole. It still is, come to think of it. I suppose it’s one of the formative flavors from my childhood. Fast forward a few decades, and now that I’m pushing forty (gah!) and have changed how I eat, the notorious canned-soup version doesn’t really hold the same appeal for me. So what to do? Make a new dish that kicks the old one’s butt, that’s what!”

Mother Nature’s Fly Trap: Insect Control at Redwood Hill Farm

Written by Steve Considine on . Posted in Life on the Farm

How we control the flies on our organic farm including complete plans for “Mother Nature’s Fly Trap”

We are totally committed to protecting our environment and the health/safety of our employees and goats.  Therefore, we have a policy of zero tolerance for synthetic chemical pesticides.  Cleanliness and sanitation are the first line of defense against such pests as common flies.  Their larvae need a moist, nitrogen rich area in which to incubate and hatch.  In so far as possible, such habitats are minimized in our management.  However, certain areas are always problematic on a working farm, such as around and underneath platforms supporting water tanks.  Insect predators are routinely distributed to such areas to feed on the fly larvae.
