The milk used for the cheese comes from breeds of sheep and goats. The animals' diet is based on the flora of the area. The production of this esteemed Lesvos cheese, which is stored in olive oil, dates to ancient times.
Ladotyri is an exclusive product of Lesbos and it has a very rich and peppery taste. Genuine oil cheese has a yellow-red color and nowadays, for reasons of circulation, it is covered externally with paraffin.
