Why kids like this goat cheese dip

  • Warmed in the oven, with a drizzle of olive oil on top, the presentation feels like a decadent treat.

Fun facts (from Redwood Hill Farm)

  • Baby goats have been called kids for longer than humans have! For centuries, the young of a goat have been called kids. It wasn’t until the 1800’s that the word kid was extended to children.
  • Goat kids learn to stand within minutes of being born.
  • Like human kids, goat kids like to snuggle. The “kid pile” is a common sight in the barn nursery, as they curl up with with each other for companionship and warmth.
