Von Trapp Famstead
Yes, they’re related to the famous Von Trapp family of musicians, but brothers Sebastian and
Dan have made their own name as cheesemakers, particularly with this lovely washed-rind cow’s-milk cheese. Sweet and buttery, with a texture like firm pudding, “Oma” gets a sassy kick from regular brine baths, which add the aroma of salted, roasted nuts. Like several noteworthy
Vermont cheeses, these are aged in Jasper Hill’s 22,000-square-foot cheese cave in Greensboro and packaged and distributed under that label.
Suggested Retail Price: $22 per pound
