Oma by von Trapp Farmstead

Oma is an American original – an intriguing but approachable washed-rind cheese that balances pungent and sweet flavors. The paste is soft, buttery, and almost pudding-like, but never runny. The rind is thin and mild for the style – an earthy foil to notes of roasted nuts and sweet cream.
