Cosmos is a raw sheep milk feta aged in brine for over 60 days. Sheep’s milk makes a rich and creamy feta which stands up well to the intense saltiness. It is delicious sprinkled over cucumbers, red onions, and fresh tomatoes or mixed into warm pasta with artichoke hearts and sundried tomatoes.
Garden Variety accepts jar returns! Please leave used and cleaned jars out with your O2T cooler and your delivery driver will pick it up next week.
Garden Variety Cheese is a small farmstead cheese business based in Northern Monterey County and is located on Monkeyflower Ranch.
Rebecca King began commercial milking & cheese producing in March 2009. Her sheep produce lovely, rich sweet milk that makes fabulous cheese and yogurt. To ensure the health and well-being of the animals and the high quality of the milk and cheese from Garden Variety Cheese, the 100 milking ewes at Monkeyflower Ranch are fed on fresh pasture, alfalfa hay and organic brewer’s grain from Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing and organic corn from Modesto Milling.
Each ewe is named after a garden flower and treated with love and respect. The dairy sheep are seasonal producers--each individual only gives milk for about six months per year. This season, Rebecca has staggered her breeding she hopes to have fresh milk for yogurt for most of the year.
