“We are honored and thrilled that the Real Simple editors chose both of our yogurt brands as winners in their yogurt road test,” said Jennifer Bice, owner, Redwood Hill Farm & Creamery. “We take great pride in how are products are made and the ingredients we use. All of our products are made at our solar powered, Green Business certified creamery using only the highest quality milk from goats and cows raised on Certified Humane farms. We keep our ingredient list short and, well, simple.”
