Award Winning Cheese

The FireFly Story

Founded in 2002 by partners Mike Koch & Pablo Solanet, FireFly Farms is proudly 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 work to create value for our local farming community as well as the economy of Western Maryland.


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.
