Our Urban Acres store team is on the road again today visiting some of our local farm partners. First stop: Caprino Royale in Waco, home of the best goat cheese on the planet that we sell at UA.
Eric and Karen from Caprino are currently working on a new blue cheese that we’ll be carrying soon, and they’ve also launched farm dinners that are already sold out with a wait list. This fall, they’ll start hosting farm days so you can visit Caprino Royale and meet the playful goats. So fun!
Currently, Caprino Royale has about 10 baby goats and one pregnant goat who may deliver today!

About Caprino Royale
Caprino Royale is a micro-dairy and small sustainable farm in Waco, TX producing pasture based goat milk products. The farm is owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Eric Tippit and Karen Dierolf. As James Bond fans, they created the name of their dairy from the word “Caprine,” the scientific term meaning “of or pertaining to goats” and as a spoof on the James Bond film Casino Royale. This developed into the goat herd name “Caprino Royale”. Their herd consists of purebred registered Nubian goats, which are known for their superior quality of milk, high butterfat content, and friendly disposition (not to mention, their big floppy ears!). We think Caprino Royale’s goat-milk cheese (fromage de chevre) is simply the best. For something sweet, try their Cajeta caramel sauce and Cajeta Pecan Cheese – yum.
