Oklahoma Toma - 8oz (Alpine Toma)

8.25

Toma cheese originated in the Piemontese region of northern Italy. Lovera's family's ancestry in this region of the Italian Alps has made this a very rewarding style to bring into their line of hand crafted artisan cheese. Oklahoma Toma brings to life the flavors of the rolling pastures of Lovera's dairy partner, Peaceful Valley Farm. Allowed to age on wooden planks for 5 months, Oklahoma Toma has a smooth yet semi-hard texture which carries the deliciously creamy and full flavored cheese to the pallet with a subtle intensity. The milk for all of our hand-crafted cheeses is from family owned single source dairies and is hormone and pesticide free.
