Rich, Creamy Goat Cheese Recipes
Called to make cheese
Creating a French-style cheese from the Midwest doesn't seem quirky to Judy Schad. "I was called to do this and to live this way," she says.
Goat herding and cheese making are provincial arts, she says. "I grew up right around here in New Albany and lived all my life in southern Indiana," she says. "My grandparents worked a farm, and we always had fresh milk, homemade cottage cheese and eggs. We cooked with whatever we had on hand."
Judy's husband, Larry -- an attorney and New Albany native -- found the farm for Judy, who abandoned a Ph.D. in Renaissance literature in 1977 for earth, sky and fresh milk.
