In 1990, Amy Wend and a partner set out to create a unique facility in the Napa Valley. They began by cultivating extensive organic gardens and selling the fresh produce at local farmers’ markets. With the help of her herd master, Amy began acquiring a small herd of goats, one of whom was Emily, who is featured on their cheese labels. This fledgling company was christened Skyhill Napa Valley Farms and, in 1991, the first fresh goat cheese was sold alongside the organic produce.
Two decades later, the business has flourished and is now located at a more modern and spacious facility a short distance away from the original Napa Valley property. They make chèvre in plain and flavors.
