Magriz olive oil and family farm


OPG Magriz is located in the southern part of the island of Krk in the small town of Kornic. This family farm is actively involved in the production and sale of sheep cheese, olives, raspberry oil and various homemade spreads. The name Magriž originated from a very represented plant species which, despite the storms that bring salt from the sea, grows defiantly on the rocky pastures of the island of Krk. These pastures are the free space where their sheep feed, so the plant magriz is a famous ingredient that gives sheep's milk a special taste, and thus a specific aroma and character of cheese. Other herbs are also used in the production, such as rosemary, walnut leaves and sage, with which we coat the cheeses in the ripening phase in order to acquire various natural aromas. The production of the Cornichia brand oil itself is certified organic (without the addition of any pesticides), and cold pressing methods are used to preserve the nutritional value and richness of aroma and taste. Within the oil mill there is a new, modern tasting room. You can buy and taste their olive oils and products in specialized stores, in the oil mill, through the webshop and in direct agreement with the family farm.

very good!!!
This farm is known for their production and sale of sheep cheese, olive oil and homespreads. I had an opportunity to tour its farm and see how they feed and take care of their sheep. They also use herbs in their production hence there will be an aromatic smell.
I toured this place and I was impressed by how organic everything is. They made use of locally available materials in order to produce high quality products. Their olive oil was just the best.
The sheep products of this place are of impeccable quality. I really learnt a lot about the sheep and how their produce are processed and packed. I bought a lot of sheep products.The rosemary herbs used produced a nice aromatic smell
The sight of the sheep here really impressed me. It amazed me how they were well maintained yet they fed freely on the pastures.
