    When the goat whisperer calls, and you’re a foodie, you come running.

    Jennifer Bice of Redwood Hill Farm on Shockingly DeliciousSo when Jennifer Bice, owner of Redwood Hill Farm, came to Southern California to give a class/tasting on goat cheese, I couldn’t get there fast enough!

    Redwood Hill Farm is a premiere, award-winning goat dairy farm in Sonoma County,Calif., where frisky goats are raised humanely, happily and in the most natural way possible on the sustainable farm. It’s family-owned, and Bice is a perfect leader for the company because her passion for premium quality goat milk shines through in every word and deed.

    Their artisan cheese consistently wins national awards, their superior goat milk yogurt and kefir bring accolades, and the company is a leader in providing a sustainable lifestyle for the farm, the goats and the 57 employees.

    Among other selections, she introduced us to raw goat milk feta, a taste revelation to me. It isn’t particularly “goaty,” if you know what I mean, but has a clean, slightly briny taste.

    Baked Goat Feta with Olive Oil and Herbs on Shockingly DeliciousJennifer taught us her favorite simple way to enjoy it, with olive oil and fresh herbs, simply heated in the oven and then eaten on baguette slices as an appetizer.
