Looking for artisanal cheese farms

Are there any good artisanal cheese farms to visit in western md or nova. Raw is a plus. Thanks!

  1. You might want to ask this question of a manager at Cowgirl Creamery on F St. I know they stock a lot of good local cheeses and they might well be able to answer this question.

    1. Stonyman Gourmet Farmer is a vendor at Bethesda Central Farm Market. They are in in Washington, VA.

          South Mountain Creamery is excellent! was just there this weekend for ice cream and purchased the best butter I have ever tasted. haven't tried the cheeses yet, but based on the ice cream and the butter, I'm guessing they would be great.

          Firefly Farms in Western MD will have tours when their Accident, MD location opens. I had their cheeses this past weekend and they were all really good. When the new facility opens I would highly recommend it! They sell their cheeses to Whole Foods so you may be able to get a taste, man my fresh chevre and Merry Goat Round were so good!

            They also sell at the Baltimore Farmer's Market. They have excellent cheese.
