Besides lamb, cheese is the best known culinary brand from the island of Pag. It is made exclusively from the milk of the indigenous sheep of Pag. When the winds blowing off the Velebit Mountain sprinkle sea salt over the local vegetation, the Pag sheep, feeding on these salted plants and medicinal herbs, produce milk with a very unique flavour and aroma. Aged Pag cheese that is over five months old has a typically sharp flavour, an intense aroma and slightly granular structure which crumbles pleasantly and melts in the mouth. Today Pag cheese may be purchased at family farms that produce cheese, or at one of the cheese factories on the island, which have merged tradition with technology. This product carries the label “Croatian Creation” and represents Pag and Croatia at all trade fairs in the European Union.
