Flavor Profile: Medium-strong

Sebastian and Dan Von Trapp  (yes, related to those Von Trapps!) have a small herd of mixed-breed cows in the Mad River Valley of Vermont. The brothers craft their cheese several times a week, and then work closely with the Cellars at Jasper Hill to age their raw milk cheese to 60-75 days.  "Oma" is German for "grandmother," and the cheese is named after Sebastian and Dan's Oma, Erica Von Trapp, who started the family farm over 50 years ago..."  

Oma is a washed-rind, cow's milk cheese with lovely, silky texture. It has fast become a staff and customer favorite at Formaggio Kitchen, and for good reason: it's buttery, rich, funky, tangy, and addictive.  Try it with some of our house-made pate de campagne and a few cornichons on the side.
