Since 1994, the family owned company MiH SIRANA has been marketing different kinds of cheese types. The sheep’s cheese has a characteristic spicy flavour full of the smells oft he island of Pag and the Adriatic Sea. The richness of taste comes from a number of factors, such as the storms on the island, the pastures, the micro climate and the variety of plants rich in essential oils which is the only food source of the sheep.
There are several companies on the island of Pag that produce the Pag cheese, but the family Pernjak can prove their authentic origins, from using the authentic raw material to maturing the cheese on the island of Pag.
In order to produce the best Pag sheep’s cheese you need the best sheep milk, that the family Pernjak derives from its own flock of sheep (ca. 200 milk sheep that are native on the island of Pag). Since their own flock of sheep is not enough, the family Pernjak works together with a number of other families on the island, that also produce high-quality sheep milk and that exclusively supply the Pernjak family.
