Located in Maryland's Allegheny Plateau, FireFly Farms began as a collaboration among a small group of neighbors who decided to enter the world of artisan cheesemaking. With a 130 acre farm purchased in 1997, the four "Fireflies" initially managed their own herd of goats. In 2006 they decided to focus all their efforts on cheesemaking. They now purchase milk from four local family farmers.
The rich milk produced by Nubian goats is the secret to the rich flavor of this traditional goat milk cheese. It has a clear, fresh taste and a soft, spreadable texture.
