THE BIG CHEESE 12/4!
von Trapp Farmstead, Mt. Alice
Located in Waitsfield, Vermont, von Trapp Farmstead is owned and operated by Sebastian von Trapp. Sebastian is the third generation to be involved in his family's hillside farm. Since 2009, Sebastian has been producing cheese several times a week in a facility adjacent to the barn. He has also developed a partnership with the Cellars at Jasper Hill, which has enabled him to expand the production of aged cheeses.
Mt. Alice is a camembert-style cheese with a bloomy rind. The cheese, which is produced using the von Trapp's organic pasteurized cow's milk, is named after a peak to the southeast of the farm. It is aged on the farm for three to five weeks. With a mild, earthy and creamy flavor, a hint of saltiness and a sticky texture this soft cheese pairs well with fruit, a lager, hard cider or a Chenin Blanc.
