Capriole Goat Cheese


500 Alpine, Saanen, and Nubian dairy goats live on 80 acres of rolling southern Indiana hills. They are (a very important) part of the Capriole team that creates award-winning goat cheeses by hand on their farm. Well, the goats aren’t doing anything “by hand,” but you know what I mean.
