We believe in making really good food and we do it sustainably – our creamery in Sebastopol California uses 100% renewable energy and the least amount of water possible.
For over fifty years, Redwood Hill Farm has led the charge to bring the great alternative dairy to communities across the country. It all began in 1968 when a young Jennifer Bice moved with her family from L.A. to Sebastopol , California. The oldest of ten siblings, she found a new passion when she joined the local 4H program: A love for goats. Over the next half-century, Jennifer Bice built on her affection for these endearing animals with her pioneering farm—which became the first Certified Humane® goat dairy in the United States.
In 2010, Redwood Hill Farm set out on a mission: to create a dairy that everyone could eat. Over the years we received request after request to create delicious dairy products that those with lactose sensitivities could eat too. After 40 years of perfecting goat dairy, the perfect cow dairy was a natural (and delicious!) evolution. The Green Valley Creamery brand was born.
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, sour cream, butter and cottage cheese.
Our lactose-free products are now sold in retailers nationwide and are available for shipment directly to your door. The large majority of our products continue to be produced at our Creamery located in Sebastopol, California. Our creamery is powered by 100% renewable energy from solar, wind, and geothermal sources. We also operate an extensive water-saving program that uses grey water to irrigate neighboring fields. All of our packaging is designed with sustainability in mind and is made with lightweight recyclable plastic that is free of harmful chemicals.
"There are a lot of people who want to eat real dairy, so I set out to bring that simple joy back into their lives."Jennifer Bice, Founder
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.
