Feta, Goat

Since 1968, when her parents founded their goat dairy farm in Sonoma County, California Jennifer Bice has been intimately involved in raising goats, milking goats, and making Certified Humane goat cheese. Located in warm and verdant Sebastopol, Jennifer's Redwood Hill herds of Nubian, Alpine, Saanen, and LaMancha goats clamber around green pastures when the weather is fine but are kept snugly inside when the winds and rains buck up.

Traditionally, feta is made from a combination of sheep and goat milk. However, Redwood Hill's unique feta, which is a Mediterranean-style, is made solely with pure raw goat milk. A small amount of natural sea salt is added. The curds are then gently cut, formed by hand into blocks and brined for 18 hours for a winning flavor.
