Buy Local: An Array of Farm Products Are Just a Click Away
From goat milk caramels to herb-infused soap, find out about America’s homespun harvest.
“It’s a locavore age, with many consumers deeply invested in the source and story behind everything from their face cream to their goat’s milk gouda. As food trends shift back to the land, farm-fresh products are gaining more traction. Family-owned farms offer a remedy to faceless corporations, and offer products crafted with consideration and care.

Looking for a quick and simple appetizer using raw milk cheese and showcasing our Raw Milk Feta?
Here we present two options – hot or cold. For the hot, guests scoop up the oozy goodness of roasted feta with herbs and olive oil with slices of crusty bread. The cold version is simply cubed feta in olive oil with fresh ground black pepper, herbs and curls of lemon zest, served with toothpicks. C’est Simple!
This recipe call for the perfect combination of fresh herbs and young salad greens to compliment the bursts of flavor from diced Redwood Hill Raw Feta and Kalamata olives. Adapted by Michelle Anna Jordan from Rosemary Barrons, Flavors of Greece
from John Ash, Chef Consultant:
“I’ve always loved fondues but they can be a little rich. Here’s a version that cuts down on the fat but still provides the flavor. I love the goat cheeses from Redwood Hill Farm.”
This recipe was originally developed using Redwood Hill Farm Teleme, which we no longer make. Our aged cheddar is a great substitute…melting wonderfully in the bath of the tomatoes.
