Feta is Greece’s most popular cheese, and with good reason!

Feta cheese is one of the most popular Greek cheeses and with good reason. It’s creamy, tangy, full-flavoured known best as a table cheese but its versatility and unique character has made it a cheese lovers’ favourite. You can crumble feta on warm and cold salads but it is equally wonderful when sizzled and baked giving dishes a very special touch.

Greece in general and the mountainous regions in particular are ecologically rich and diverse.  According to the Greek Ministry for the Environment, there are over 5,500 different recorded species of flora in Greece, about a 1,000 of those species are endemic to the land and over 700 of those may be found only in Greece.

That’s what the sheep and goats are eating, and it comes through in their milk.
