Capriole Farms has been producing artisan goat cheese in Southern Indiana since the early 1980’s. Their goal was to build a working goat dairy farm that would provide a sustainable lifestyle model for others. Since there were no guidelines for commercial goat dairying, they based this trial and error model on an older, more traditional one centered on herd health, longevity, and productivity, and on animals who are born, live, and die in the same place. They did this not only because they loved their animals, but because it worked and since they were not proper dairyman, they let the animals ‘tell’ them what was needed. When they became Certified Humane in 2009 they didn’t have to adjust management and procedures. They’d been in place for over 20 years.
Nunu Chocolates is an incredible story of successful entrepreneurship and fortunately, a side story about sustainability. These chocolates enjoy a cult-like following in Brooklyn -home to their sole retail store- owing in equal measure to their gifted chocolatier Justine Pringle and the fine, single origin, Fairly Traded cacao used in their confections. Sourced from a sustainable and family-run plantation in Santander, Colombia, the cacao is transformed into a line of intensely flavored caramels and ganache-filled truffles including exotics like Absinthe Delight and Mezcal Chili.
Salt Caramels in a heart box are luscious squares of melt-in-your-mouth caramels hand-dipped in chocolate then dusted with Fleur de Sel. What better way to say “I love you?”And for your littlest Valentine’s Nunu’s heart-shaped chocolate pops are the perfect Valentine’s Day treat.
