Made by Caroline Hoel and Henry Beckmeyer at La Clarine Farm near Somerset, California, Sierra Mountain Tomme is a raw goat's milk cheese produced from the milk of their closed herd of Alpine goats. La Clarine Farm is a biodynamic farm that has been worked naturally since 2001, when Caroline and Henry bought the property.
Sierra Mountain Tomme is a wonderful aged cheese with a washed rind. The texture is quite firm and the paste is a classic ivory-white, so often associated with goat's milk cheeses.
Aromas are distinct and quite pungent. Flavors are of grass and hay, with savory vegetal notes and pleasant, earthy undertones.
Pairs well with a crisp, dry white or a dessert wine.
