cow and goat milk cheese
- Indoor and outdoor markets
J2K CAPRAIO is a farmstead dairy and artisan creamery located in Walkerton, IN. The Klinedinsts have owned goats for the majority of their lives but their dream of an on-farm cheesemaking adventure began in 2008. In an effort to become self-sufficient and to use and share the goodness of their goats the couple took a leap of faith. It took about 3 years to make the dream a reality and now they have been making cheese for five seasons and have never looked back. J2K CAPRAIO's artisan cheesemaking operation is entirely done by hand; they raise the goats, milk the goats, handcraft the cheese and sell the cheese themselves. The creamery also buys cow milk from a woman in their small town to make a corresponding cow milk cheese in every variety offered. J2K CAPRAIO strives to support and bring awareness to the community by offering quality seasonal products, supporting neighbors, sharing their experience, educating customers, and promoting their industry. The J2K family consists of Josiah & Jody Klinedinst (J2K), and their children Sofia (14), Joey(12), Frances(7), & Nicolas(1) all of whom you will see at the market!
"Once you get to know our family you’ll understand our methods, appreciate the effort put forth, and taste the experience!" Jody says.
