Oma is an American original, made by Sebastian von Trapp on his family's dairy farm in Waitsfield, Vermont. Oma means grandmother in German and is named in honor of their grandmother. It is an approachable washed-rind cheese and is made from the organic milk of the von Trapp's Jersey cows. Oma's flavor balances sweetness and pungency with flavors of ham, roasted nuts, and cultured butter. The interior is soft and pudding-like.
