National Cheese Competition Best in Show

California Crottin

Awarded Best in Show at the American Dairy Goat Association National Cheese Competition, our traditional French-style California Crottin goat milk cheese has a wrinkly, geotrichum candidum rind, a fluffy texture and robust, earthy flavor. Crottin is one of our most decorated artisan cheeses, twice voted Best Farmstead Goat Cheese by the prestigious American Cheese Society, and chosen as the best Crottin in a Wall St. Journal tasting.

Better than the French originals!


Terra is our 5 oz. version of Redwood Hill Farm's much awarded California Crottin. We have found that chefs as well as consumers have all come to love the larger size of this robust, earthy cheese. To deal with the internal challenges of managing two different sizes of the same cheese, we have come up with a new name for our 5oz. Crottin: "Terra." Based on the word "terroir," our Terra is made with the same recipe and aging practices that you have come to know and love over the years.

Storage & Serving Suggestions

Re-wrap this cheese in its original storage-enhancing paper or parchment and store in a cool environment. If kept whole, and stored in a cool, dry environment, this cheese becomes gratable with a sharp and complex flavor at about two months of age. Superb in salads as well as an excellent cheese plate selection, this handmade delicacy is best served at room temperature.
