Say Cheese!!!

Last week Jodi, Linda, and I took advantage of the warmer weather and headed out of the office for a field trip excursion. We found ourselves in Accident to check out Firefly Farms, a new establishment that recently opened. What a charming little shop! Specializing in artisanal goat cheeses (made mostly in house), here you can purchase delicacies such as cheese, crackers, jams, spreads, wine, and more. We met with owner, Andrea, who was kind enough to show us around and let us sample some of their fantastic cheeses (although they were all wonderful, I was particularly fond of the Allegheny Chevre).
The shop was designed so that visitors could observe the cheese making process through the large windows. They have plans in the near future for visitors to be able to actually take tours of the facility and to hear an in depth description of the cheese making process. Although you are now able to sample the cheeses and some jams, in the future they will also be doing some wine tasting at the shop as well. While in the shop, although you cannot miss it, please take time to check out the gorgeous mural on the wall that was painted and designed by renowned local artist, Mark Stutzman (most famous for his rendition of a young Elvis Presley on the US postage stamp.) It adds a wonderful serene ambience to the already quaint looking shop.
I highly recommend that the next time you are coming to the lake that you stop into the shop and check it out. Located on Main Street, it is impossible to miss. Say hello to Andrea, sample some cheese & crackers, and check out their assortment of other delicious appetizers. It is definitely worth the trip. Until next week, we can’t wait to see you at the lake!
