Fresh Feta Goat Cheese
Taste and Texture
Feta (Greek: φέτα, féta, “slice”) is a brined curd white cheese .Our Feta cheese made out of
100% goat milk . Feta is a rich, crumbly and mildly salty cheese. Our Goat Milk cheese is
crafted in the farmstead tradition using high quality fresh Grade A Kosher milk produced from
goats and it’s not in Greece! It’s right here in the U.S. A couple of hours from a store! Fresh as
fresh can be. Fun Fact: f Because the curing process involves brine, feta cheese is sometimes
called “pickled cheese”.
Storage and serving suggestions
Feta’s shelf life is very long because salt serves as a natural preservative. After opening it can
stand for two month if it covered in the brine water.
Keep it covered with the brine solution in an airtight container, refrigerated. The brine solution
is nice and helps prevent spoilage. If you run low on the brine, you can top it up with salted
water (or plain water and it will absorb salt from the cheese–this will result in a less salty feta).
If you store feta without the brine, you’ll find the cheese dries out quickly and won’t last as long.
Feta cheese can be frozen but there will be a loss of texture and quality once thawed. For the best
taste it’s better to be used fresh!
The cheese can be used melted on a traditional Greek salad, pizza or pie. It tastes delicious with
olive oil, roasted red peppers and nuts. If required, it can be washed under water to remove the
