Two food manufacturers specializing in better-for-you dairy, Jackson-Mitchell Inc. and Redwood Hill Farm & Creamery Inc., announced that they will merge to become Darey Brands Inc.

Jackson-Mitchell, founded in the Central Valley of California in 1934, produces famed Meyenberg goat milk and butter. Redwood Hill Farm & Creamery, started 50 years ago in Sonoma County, California 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.

Darey Brands effectively merges these category leaders, with strong market shares and impressive sales growth rates, under one parent name. The new company is well-positioned for accelerated growth across multiple categories with its innovative portfolio of goat, cow, and plant-based products.

"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."

Darey Brands, owned by Emmi Group, will maintain its production facilities in Sebastopol and Turlock, California. They 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.
