Home Dairy Cheese Feta PDO from Grevena 1kg tub

Feta PDO from Grevena 1kg tub

The rich alpine pastures of north west Greece give this classic sheep and goat’s milk feta a wonderful flavour and a pleasingly firm, crumbly texture. The cheese is packed in brine to keep it fresh, long after opening. Located in the mountains of north western Greece, the Siafarikas dairy is now in the hands of the fourth generation and has been making cheese since 1930. The milk is sourced from sheep and goats who graze on the rich mountains and prairies of The Pindus mountain range, more fondly known as ‘the spine of Greece.’

Siafarikas, Grevena, Macedonia

A fourth generation dairy in the north-west of Greece, a mountainous area with excellent grazing and a long tradition of cheesemaking. Siafarikas specialising in using very traditional recipes and methods, such as making a feta-style cheese in cheesecloths, rather than the more familiar block shape. This means that they don't always follow the strict rules of the modern PDO designations, so can't be called a Feta, but there cheeses are worth seeking even more so for the delicious taste of the past they offer. The herds of sheep and goats that provide the milk for the dairy graze on mount Pindus, contributing to the delicate and complex flavour of the cheese.
