Full Shipping Details
Produced exclusively from the milk of the autochthonous sheep on the Island of Pag, Paški Sir is the most famous ewes' milk cheese in all of Croatia. This is a one-year-aged pasteurized cheese made from the sheep raised on the island of Pag, Croatia. There are a total of 40,000 sheep and 8,000 humans on the island of Pag. The sheep are a special breed, smaller than average with limited milk production. The island is windy with little vegetation, what little grass it has is in the hills, and due to the crosswinds much of the salt water blows over it. The sheep produce very little milk, maximum just a liter per day. On top of that their diet is influenced by the salty grass they eat. In total it takes 6 sheep or more to produce one wheel of cheese. Our producer is Paška Sirana. They have 200 members who together have 300 sheep. The cheesemaker, Nenad, has been making cheese for 15 years. The cheese is rich and flavorful – it is not overly dry and there is a beautiful crystallinity in the texture with a gentle sweetness. Traditionally this aged cheese is served chunked and crumbled with olive oil.
  • Made from pasteurized sheep's milk.
