Capriole’s Judy Schad talks goats, cheese

One of my favorite US artisans!


Doesn’t it often seem the people who become legendary, who make a name for themselves in their art, do so almost accidentally? They think they’re on the road to one thing, laying the best plans, but take an unexpected turn and find themselves surprised by wild success. Such is the story of Judy Schad, co-owner and cheesemaker of Capriole Goat Cheese in Greenville.

It was the mid ’70s, and – long before it was hip – Judy, her husband, and their three small children ditched the ‘burbs of Louisville and moved to an 80-acre hill farm in Greenville. Judy had grown up spending summers at her grandparents’ small farm outside New Albany, and harbored a nostalgic, maybe unrealistic memories of those times. “It explains a lot about why I’m here – I thought I’d be walking back into a child’s dream – and well, it’s not quite as I remembered it… [my husband’s] comment is that I can turn any dream into a nightmare, just give me a chance!”

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
