Green Valley Creamery Lactose Free

Our Story

In a perfect world, life would be all rainbows, smiley faces and cat videos. Foods would be clean. And everyone could enjoy real, rich delicious dairy. Well, news flash: an estimated 110 million Americans are lactose sensitive.

So what do you do, friend zone dairy? Not on our watch. In 2010, we set out on a mission: to create a dairy that everyone could eat. After 40 years of perfecting goat dairy with our Redwood Hill Farm brand, the perfect cow dairy was a natural (and delicious!) evolution. We kept the rich, real dairy flavor, and cut out the lactose. We kept our commitment to dairy in its purest form, and nixed the bloat. And we lost no time extending our product lines. Yogurt, kefir, and sour cream paved the way for our tasty cream cheese, butter, cottage cheese, and Greek Yogurt.

So, while we can’t perfect the world, dairy is another story. Fall back in love with Green Valley Creamery. Dairy Perfected.

We take a personal responsibility for the well-being of the animals, the environment and the people who make Green Valley Creamery dairy products. Our personal actions are based on our values, and running a business in this manner is just a natural extension.

  • 100% renewable energy: The creamery where we produce our dairy products is powered by 2 acres of solar panels on the roof, which cover 85% of our electricity needs. The remainder is sourced through Sonoma Clean Power, ensuring that 100% of our electricity needs come from renewable sources.
  • Preserving resources: We have an extensive water conservation and water reclamation program at the creamery. Any opportunity we get to make our facility more sustainable, we use: from extensive recycling, insulation, eco-sanitizers, sensor lighting, to repurposing scraps from production and whey for animal feed.
  • Animal welfare: The family farms from where we source the milk used in our organic yogurts and kefirs must be Certified Humane® by Humane Farm Animal Care. We work closely with our milk producers to ensure all standards are met and the animals are in good health in a stress-free environment.
  • People: Our employees all start employment at a living wage. We have a generous benefits package for all employees including full family health benefits. Employees stay with us for a long time; one of our oldest employees just had his 24th anniversary, and has worked his way up from being an exchange student at the farm to becoming our VP of Operations.
