About the Cheeses:

Allegheny Chevre, an unripened goat's milk cheese, is a traditional chevre, crumbly in texture with a clean and tangy flavor. Crumbled on a salad, spread on sandwich, used in pasta dishes, or blended with spices for use as a spread, it is a delicious, creamy addition to your holiday meal.

Merry Goat Round, a surface-ripened goat's milk round, is FireFly's homage to brie or camembert. Aged for several weeks before it leaves us, it ripens from its rind inwards and grows progressively softer and creamier as it ages. Merry Goat Round can be served alone as a holiday appetizer, cut for a cheese board, served with crackers and a savory tapenade, or used in finer cuisine. Merry Goat Round has earned 5 individual awards of excellence since its creation in 2002.

MountainTop Bleu is a soft-ripened goat cheese. MountainTop Blue takes its shape from pyramid molds. Delicate blue veining run through the cheese and blue and white mold cover its surface. Aged for several weeks before it leaves us, it continues to ripen from the rind inward as it matures and its piquancy and creaminess increase. This much-awarded aged goat blue is definitely unique among American artisan goat cheeses. MountainTop Bleu has earned 10 individual awards of excellence since its creation in 2002.

Black & Blue will leave you aching for more! It is a deeply blued wheel with a black-wax rind. It is aged for several months before it leaves us. Cut into its waxed exterior and you'll be thrilled to find a rich, dense, buttery, stark white cheese that is deeply blued throughout its interior. Its lusty taste will thrill any true-blue lover. This is cheese is a certain star on any cheese board, or as a complement to poached fruit for dessert. Black & Blue has earned 3 individual awards of excellence since its creation in 2006.

Cabra LaMancha is a rustic, goat's milk tome. We wash its rind -- which develops an earthy orange-color -- and age it for several months before it leaves us. Its clean, sharp taste is universally appealing. It has a firm but not hard texture that make it perfect for slicing on a cheese board or melting as part of finer cuisines. This cheese is gorgeous in taste and appearance. Cabra LaMancha has earned 6 individual awards of excellence since its creation in 2006.
