It took some time to get all the remodeling done to house a state of the art facility. But goat cheese is now being processed right on Main Street in Accident, MD. The owners moved the operation from their Bittinger farm to Accident this summer. The farm used to be the home of their goat herd as most locals remember back in the early 2000’s. Brad Nesline used to pick up the cheese for the restaurant that he worked for back then. He remembers when he would drive up the farm, all the goats would run to the fence and line it the whole way. It was a highlight of the trip. Now Firefly Farms rely on local farmers to provide them with raw goat milk for their processed gold.
