The FireFly Story
Founded in 2002 by partners Mike Koch & Pablo Solanet, FireFly Farms is dedicated to excellence in handmade goat cheese. We only use four simple ingredients and our cheeses have no additives, preservatives or stabilizers. We source fresh goat milk from family farms within 30-miles of the creamery, all of which is free from added hormones or antibiotics. We are committed to renewable energy and sustainability, and we are proud members of the Maryland Cheese Guild as well as the American Cheese Society. FireFly Farms works to create value for our local farming community, as well as the economy of Western Maryland.
Award Winning Cheese
FireFly Farms' cheeses are produced using sustainably-produced, locally‐sourced fresh goat’s milk and time‐honored, traditional methods of cheese making. Our cheeses have received national and international recognition for taste and quality since our opening in 2002.

FireFly's Cheese Monger Resources
Our Cheesemonger Resources page is coming soon. Here you can find spec sheets on our cheeses, serving and storage instructions, FAQ’s, recipes and more.
We Believe In Sustainability
We use alternative green energy sources for the production facility and retail space, recycling and reducing waste, and donation of whey to local farmers to use as feed for their crops and herds. We have invested in solar renewable energy installation, and our solar panels generate one-third of FireFly Farms' total energy demand as of 2018. Our family farms are all within a 30-mile radius of our creamery, and we reduce emissions and support our community when we buy local milk.
