Traditional & All-Natural Greek Dairy Products…
“Menikio Agricultural Cooperative” is a unique vertically integrated dairy company, with deep respect towards tradition & nature. Every step of the production process “from farm to shelf” is entirely under their supervision. From the feed crop & the livestock breeding; to the daily milk collection & the final production. This is how they are able to offer dairy products of high nutritional value, exceptional quality & unmatched taste for the whole family to enjoy. The feed storage, livestock & production units are located in the valley of Prosotsani, under the shadow of Mt Menikio. The location has been deliberately chosen, not only because of its rich & fertile soil; but also because of the constant breeze blowing down from a nearby gorge, creating a natural ventilation system. This is why the air is always fresh around the livestock unit, even though it houses a few thousands of sheep & goats. The biggest advantage of the unit’s location though is that it is surrounded by 25 acres of its own organic-grown grass field, where the sheep & goats are free to roam & graze.
“BIO Kefalotiri” is made from Menikio’s organic sheep milk & matures for a minimum of 3 months, a process that gives it its unique aroma. A hard yellow cheese of low moisture content, with a rich, salty flavour & a buttery texture, ideal for the grill & especially to grate over pasta or fries. Its strong flavour & aroma makes it an excellent pairing for medium & full-bodied red wines.
Made from 100% Greek & Fresh Organic Sheep Milk!
