The “Perfect Bite”?

Written by Sharon Bice on . Posted in Company News

How about Redwood Hill Farm Chèvre and Poppin’ Berry Fruity Pebbles!™

The “Perfect Bite” at the first West Coast Cheesemonger Invitational (CMI) held January 19 at Public Works in San Francisco, 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 award-winning chévre from Redwood Hill Farm with grapes, candied ginger and Poppin’ Berry Pebbles™ breakfast cereal to create his unique, eye-catchingly delicious perfect bite. Soulos went on to win the entire competition and was awarded $1,000, immeasurable glory and an all expenses paid trip to the Vermont Cheesemakers Festival this summer along with top two finalists in Zach Berg of Bi-Rite Market in San Francisco and Nate McElroy of Bedford Cheese Shop New York.

Autumn on The Farm and Jennifer’s Brandied Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Written by Sharon Bice on . Posted in Life on the Farm

Note: this blog post ran for the first time last fall. The farm was so beautiful, and this pumpkin pie recipe is so special, I’m sharing again for this Thanksgiving. Enjoy, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving feast with you and yours.

Thanksgiving is upon us…

and right on cue are blustery days, intense fall colors, and a sprinkling of rain showers to green up the fields on the farm. Recently on an extraordinarily fine day, I spent the afternoon with Jennifer and we made pie. Jennifer and I share a passion for cooking, along with Scott, David, Shelley and a few other siblings! As a large family growing up together on Redwood Hill Farm, cooking with fresh goat milk and seasonal produce from the garden each year became a natural part of our life. Now, some 45 years later, we all have favorite recipes when it comes to gathering for holiday meals and this pie is very special.

Though we love our website and it has served us very well since it’s launch nearly 14 years ago, we’ve decided: it’s time for a facelift!

Redwood Hill Farm & Creamery is celebrating it’s 45th Anniversary this year and what better time to refresh and improve our virtual home, www.RedwoodHill.com?

We loved the look of our existing site, so you might not notice a big difference in the “look” as you browse through the pages. But just step inside…
