A rustic, farmhouse cheese from the Piedmont region of Italy. This 60-day aged raw milk Toma is produced with thistle flower, rather than traditional rennet. The name – literally small mountain shepherd in Occitan – pays tribute to Nonno Magno, Mario Fiandino's grandfather. Continuing in his tradition, the Bruna Alpina cows at the Fiandino farm are raised with the utmost care; they even play music at a special frequency to calm the animals and increase milk production.
The cheese has a delicate aroma with a full-flavored creaminess. Beneath the leathery rind you'll taste a refreshing and delicious cheese with the flavor of the local countryside. This raw milk beauty should be served simply, with good bread and perhaps a nice, buttery, white wine.
- Made from unpasteurized Bruna Alpina cow's milk.
- Suitable for Vegetarians.
- We cut and wrap this item by hand from a 5 lb wheel.

How We Ship
Our products are always shipped so they will arrive at your door in optimal condition! We’ve carefully selected packaging options that have minimal impact on the environment without compromising on food safety or quality.
For perishable orders, we line our shipping boxes with Tempguard - a unique, padded insulator made of 100% pre-consumer recycled paper material. We further control the temperature with recycled kraft paper fill and non-toxic frozen gel packs. In the summer months, we may include dry ice to ensure fresh delivery in very hot weather.
Note: Please join our efforts to be mindful of our environment and extend the life-cycle of our packaging, by recycling your shipping box, Tempguard liner, and kraft fill (all 100% curbside recyclable!). Store the gel packs in your freezer and reuse to keep your next picnic or road trip fare cool.
