Jackson-Mitchell Inc. and Redwood Hill Farm & Creamery Inc., announced they will merge to become Darey Brands Inc. 

Jackson-Mitchell, founded in the Central Valley of California in 1934, produces Meyenberg goat milk and butter. Redwood Hill Farm & Creamery, started 50 years ago in Sonoma County, Calif., as a 4-H project, produces Redwood Hill Farm goat milk yogurts and kefirs and Green Valley Creamery lactose-free cow milk dairy products. The creamery also makes premium, plant-based dairy alternatives. 

"Our founders were innovative pioneers in healthy eating and sustainable agriculture long before these ideas became center-stage movements,” said Bonnie Neulight, CEO and Managing Director of Darey Brands. “Our new name, Darey Brands, is not only a play on words, but also a nod to our heritage and ethos. We proudly craft dairy that dares to be different.” 

“Our goal is to bring the ‘comfort’ back into comfort foods – both nutritional comfort and environmental comfort,” added Neulight. 

Darey Brands, owned by Emmi Group, will maintain its production facilities in Sebastopol and Turlock, Calif. It will continue to sell the brands nationwide at retailers such as Whole Foods Market, Kroger, Albertsons, Publix, HEB, Sprouts Farmers Market, Walmart, Amazon, Instacart, and more.
