OUR QUALITY STANDARDS?


Well, it is all about having high quality standards...

Our milk is the most important raw material that gives that special flavour to cheese, yogurt, the Kopanisti the Tyrovolia, the ricotta and our rice pudding. In all our products we use only fresh goat and sheep milk from Mykonos. Our non-negotiable principle is to only use fresh local milk. Closely controlling each stage of production and processing of milk -from using proper nutrition and animal health, to final disposal of the product to the consumer- in our Diary we work to offer uncompromised high quality products consistently. Our milk comes from selected herds of local smallsized breeds that give less but qualitative milk and graze freely in selected areas of Mykonos and Rhenia. Breeders who we have chosen to work with, share the same philosophy with us, as regards the importance of tradition and quality. Our production follows the seasons of animal lactation and this direct connection with nature contributes to the excellent taste and freshness of our products.

Meet "Kopanisti"

The Mykonian spicy cheese!
The most famous Mykonian cheese.
Kopanisti cheese is a beloved local product. It is one of the most typical alpine cheeses in Mykonos.
Made with pure milk from certified providers.
Tradition is our guide, pure ingredients are our secret, technology is our tool.
Ability to age and get stronger by time.
Almost in every Mykonian family involved in agriculture or even in the domestic production of dairy products, there is a Kopanisti stored somewhere in the house. The ability to store it throughout the whole year makes the cheese able of having stronger flavour characteristics by time.
Amazing characteristic spicy taste.
The character of Kopanisti is very distinguished. The spicy features of the cheese create a unique flavourful feeling able to spot a new place in your heart.
A perfect “mezes”.
The best way to serv Kopanisti is as a “mezes”, used in smaller amounts. Try the famous Mykonian “mostrakia”, a version of tomato Kopanisti mezes, served on top of dried biscuits.
Made by Mykonos Farmers with 100% love!
