Judy Schad, owner of Capriole, is a pioneer in the recent American artisan cheesemaking movement. Beginning with the desire to create a sustainable lifestyle for her family, Judy started making handmade goat cheese using the milk from her farm’s goats in the late 1970s. Today, that herd of goats has grown to over 400 Alpine, Saanen and Nubian goats, yet her dedication to farmstead cheesemaking and respect for her land and animals remains the same. The Wabash Cannonball is a fantastic example of the delightful variance that is characteristic of artisan products. With a texture ranging from chalky to smooth and flavors that are earthy and lemony, this ash-coated, soft-ripened boulet carries the expression of the land of Wabash River Valley to your table.
