ALL THINGS CULTURED CONSIDERED AT 2012 AMERICAN CHEESE SOCIETY JUDGING & COMPETITION – REDWOOD HILL FARM’S TWO BRANDS TAKE HOME SIX AWARDS
Sonoma County Creamery Wins First Place for its Green Valley Organics New Strawberry Pomegranate Acai Kefir Plus Awards for Sour Cream, Cheese, Yogurt and Kefir
SEBASTOPOL, Calif. (Aug. 20, 2012) – Redwood Hill Farm & Creamery, Inc. received six awards between their two brands, Green Valley Organics and Redwood Hill Farm, at the 2012 American Cheese Society (ACS) Judging and Competition held earlier this month in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The Sonoma County creamery was awarded first place in the Cultured Products Flavor Added category for its newest product, Green Valley Organics Lactose Free Strawberry Pomegranate Acai Kefir. In the Cultured Products category, Green Valley Organics Sour Cream and new Peach Yogurt both earned second place. For its goat’s milk products, Redwood Hill Farm earned three second place prizes, including wins for California Crottin, a traditional French-style rind cheese with a fluffy texture and robust, earthy flavor; Redwood Hill Farm Plain Yogurt, the first and still favorite goat milk yogurt to be available nationwide, first introduced in 1982; and Redwood Hill Farm Plain Kefir, a one-of-a-kind, best-selling product in the natural foods industry since its introduction in 2008.
“We are honored to have our new Strawberry Pom Acai kefir recognized as the top entry in its category among a record number of entrants at this year’s ACS,” said Redwood Hill Farm & Creamery Owner Jennifer Bice. “These awards are so important to us because they are judged by our peers who are all well-respected experts in their field and we appreciate their support.”
Green Valley Organics Strawberry Pomegranate Acai Kefir is new to store shelves this summer, available in many Whole Foods Markets across the country as well as select natural and specialty stores. This smooth, creamy blend of drinkable yogurt made with organic, antioxidant-rich fruits is delicious on its own, in smoothies or atop fruit salad.
Redwood Hill Farm and Green Valley Organics products are available nationwide at Whole Foods Markets and other natural foods and specialty grocers nationwide.
