Haverton Hill Creamery now calls Tehama County home

Local Life and Business, Blog
Missy Adiego knew she wanted her farm right in her backyard so she and her husband could work and raise their three daughters in the country where they can keep the values of a simple and traditional life. So, after eight years in business in the Bay Area the Adiegos set out to find a property to move their dairy business that offered them this lifestyle. In 2018, they found their new home in Richfield, California.
I found out about Haverton Hill Creamery through their Facebook and Instagram pages. After seeing the beauty of this farm through pictures, I could not wait to visit and find out about this amazing business.
Upon arriving I was greeted by Missy and her daughter and welcomed into the most beautiful farmhouse I’ve seen.
On a tour of the farm, I found out about their move and the work they did to get operations running again. Moving production to Tehama County keeps them centrally located for distribution and was attractive because of the reasonable cost for land purchase. Find out about their 1935 Farmhome renovations and move to Tehama County on Missy’s Instagram and blog.
On to the products! Haverton Hill Creamery sells sheep milk and produces sheep milk butter and ice cream. Missy shared that there is often a misconception about the taste of sheep milk being similar to goat milk but it’s actually much different. Goat milk has been described as having a musky taste while sheep milk is creamy and delicious. I tried the sheep milk ice cream for myself and she was totally right! I was blown away by the taste and texture of this ice cream. The nutritional facts boast a rather healthy ice cream without disappointing the taste buds.
The variety of flavors were impressive as well: Vanilla Bean, Dark Chocolate, Strawberry Balsamic, Mint Chip, Hazelnut Crunch, Coffee and Cookies and Cream. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but if I had to it would be between the strawberry and chocolate. All in all, this was one of my favorite visits to a local business for a blog post. Missy was such a kind host and sent me on my way with ice cream to enjoy and share with friends. She’s got a new fan and promoter right here!
