OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
Environmental Balance: Our Commitment to Sustainability
Because we believe in harmony and balance for our surroundings, too, Green Valley Organics® is committed to a sustainable environment and implementing green practices for the benefit of the cows, the land, and all the people that live on it. Our Certified Organic creamery has installed a 580 Kw DC solar panel system that offsets a large amount of the creamery’s electric usage. Our new solar system has over 2,500 solar panels taking up 2 acres of roof space. CO2 reduced annually is equal to 110 acres of trees saved, 54 cars off the road or 76 homes powered. Quality and sustainability have always been guiding principles for our company, which earned us the Best Practices award from the Business Environmental Alliance of Sonoma County. Along with our Certified Humane® designation, these titles make us almost as proud as we are of our delicious and innovative lactose free yogurt, kefir and sour cream.
Our Commitment to Sustainability is only the beginning...
Core Values, Our Pledge to you:
To Produce healthful, natural, and delicious specialty dairy products.
Our complete line of award winning and unique goat milk and lactose free cow milk specialty dairy products includes yogurt, kefir, and artisan cheeses. All are free of preservatives, artificial coloring, and only 100% fresh milk is ever used.
To guarantee the health, happiness, and ethical treatment of all our dairy animals.
While Redwood Hill Farm is the first Certified Humane® goat dairy in the U.S., our cow dairy producer is also Certified Humane. Both farms are third party certified by Humane Farm Animal Care®.
To support our contributing dairies.
We compensate our family farm producers with a fair price for their milk and fully support family farms.
To honor and value our employees.
We pay a competitive wage to all of our employees and provide an excellent benefit package including full health care for all employees and their families.
To continue our historical commitment to sustainability.
Our farm and creamery are powered by solar energy. The company has an extensive recycling program starting with reducing and reusing, and we constantly strive to improve sustainability throughout our farm and creamery.
To support our community.
For over 30 years we have donated to and partnered with youth and agriculture organizations, local health needs, and environmental causes in our community.
To demonstrate integrity.
We are committed to fair business practices with all of our business partners, providing them fair prices for their products and services. We hold ourselves accountable to the highest ethical standards in all that we do.
