Capriole

We make fresh, ripened, & aged chevres by hand, right here, using only the milk from our own herd . While tha's the "official" definition of farmstead, what it really means is that the land, the animals, & the cheese own us. Fortune - or the lack of it - has given us a demanding gift, a sense of who we are in relation to the land & the wildness around us, a huge respect for the animals who give us so much, & for the demanding craft of cheese making. We're not real interested here in romance. Catch phrases like "sustainable", "natural", "value-added", "humane animal management", "free-farmed", "terroir" and "artisan" are not marketing tools for us. They're what we live each day because they work.

Since 1988 we've made fresh, ripened, & aged goat cheese on our family farm by hand, using only the milk of our herd. We maintain a "closed" herd and are 'girls' are raised on local hay, limited grain, and year round access to woodland browse. Since our animals are not easily replaced, this minimizes health and vet care. Over 25% of our milking herd is 8-10 years old! Our cheeses have consistently won awards, among them a prestigious Best-of-Show from the American Cheese Society.
