Feta is the national cheese of Greece, and surely the best-known Greek cheese in the US. Our Barrel-aged Feta is produced from December through April from a blend of all-natural milk from free-range sheep and goats, whose milk is richer than cow's milk in calcium, vitamin B and proteins. Curd is molded in large round forms, which are hand-turned frequently as they drain. As the whey drains, the cheese-crafter adjusts timing to perfect each form's texture. After skillful dry-salting, wheels are placed in birch barrels for aging and preservation. There they sit in a 7% brine solution that originally allowed farmers to preserve their milk in the hot Mediterranean climate. Today that brine gives feta its characteristic tang.

By the end of the four-month maturation, a wonderfully creamy, rich, complex flavor is fully developed. The care that goes into this feta is evident by its incredible characteristics. Its traditional method of production contributes to its full taste, natural aroma and pure white color, properties which have established Feta over the centuries as a unique natural cheese of Greece.

Enjoy this premium feta in a traditional cheese pie, over eggs, stuffed into squash blossoms, or even fried. Or just relax with a slab of feta drizzled with olive oil and garnished with fresh oregano. Opa!

  • Made from pasteurized sheep's and goat's milk.
  • We cut and wrap this item by hand.

Outstanding Feta
Best feta we've eaten. Beats the store bought brands in every way. Not drowning in saltiness. Leaves a pleasant after taste. Will definitely be getting again.

Authentic Barrel-Aged Feta - Pound Cut
It wasn't that good. In the past, it's been wonderful, but this batch didn't have much flavor and was kind of dried out. I put it in brine as soon as it arrived. It tasted like American's version of feta - no flavor, just salt.

Outstandingt Feta Cheese
igourmet's Authentic Barrel-Aged Feta Cheese is by far the best feta cheese I have ever eaten. Greek Salad lovers, like myself, will find it irresistible. The taste is creamy and delicious. It is my opinion that Super Market varieties are inferior in taste and quality. I whole-heartily recommend you consider purchasing this delicious cheese, you won't regret it.

Cheese Gift
We sent the feta as a gift. The process was easy and the Feta arrived on time and in good condition. They said the Feta tasted great!

Move over imitations
I had heard on TV that only cheese made in Greece should be called Feta. This convinced me that we only get imitations in the U.S. Tangy, creamy, and pretty wonderful.

The best Feta ever.
This cheese made the Greek salad I made sing! I hope it was in Greek. I won't bother to buy supermarket feta ever again.

Feta the Way it Should Be!
I've ordered this several times before & still love it. Perfect texture & tang - & best of all, not overly salty like so many commercial brands. You can actually taste the cheese instead of just salt.

Better Than 60 Yrs. Ago
Last and only time I ever had feta cheese was 60 yrs. ago in a little cafe in Norton Mass. I didn't like it.I'm 78 now, braver, too. I tried again and boy do I love this one! Great with Brisling sardines.
