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.
Wabash Cannonball is a petite but dense sphere of lightly-aged goat cheese that offers clean citrus flavors. Imitating its European cousins, this cheese is dusted with ash and develops a delicate, wrinkled rind.
