Capriole is located in the lush, rolling hills of Indiana, just over the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky. When Judy Schad and her husband Larry bought their property in 1976, they discovered that it had once belonged to Larry's great-great-grandfather. To honor family tradition, they decided to build their new log cabin right over the foundation of the old house. First populating their family farm with all manner of animals, they soon fell in love with how affectionate, independent, and mischievous their goats were.

Judy and Larry built a healthy herd of 400 Alpine, Saanen, and Nubian goats that provided milk for their nationally known-line of handmade goat cheeses. Recently, they sold the herd to a neighboring farm to focus entirely on the cheesemaking side of the business.

Named for a former Capriole intern who loved cheesemaking, Julianna is a one-pound wheel that develops a bloomy rind before being dusted with herbes de Provence. The paste is semi-soft with clean, mildly tangy and nutty flavors that are enhanced -- never overshadowed – by the presence of the herbs.
