BITTINGER, MD. - February 26, 2003 - FireFly Farms, award-winning producer of

artisan goat cheeses from Maryland's Allegheny Plateau, today announced the launch

of its web presence at http://www.fireflyfarms.com. The new web site provides visitors

with a wide range of information including an up-to-date Farm Journal, a Goat

of the Month feature, information on how their farmstead cheeses are made, recipes

using FireFly's three goat cheeses: MountainTop Bleu™ , Merry Goat Round™

, and Allegheny Chevre™ , and much more.

<p>"We are very pleased with the site," said Mike Koch, one of FireFly's

four principal partners. "We were trying to create a web site that not

only gave visitors additional information on our farmstead goat cheeses, but

more importantly gave them a feel for life on the farm. The web site is our

invitation to become a virtual part of our community."</p>

<p>Washington DC-based creative and application development agency CDG Solutions

built on its knowledge of the farm gained in the initial creation of the FireFly

cheese labels and other corporate identity materials to extend this visual identity

into the design of the web site. CDG then developed the site with its proprietary

content management system, WMS, which allows FireFly Farms staff to maintain

the content of the site while preserving the design's integrity. </p>

<p>CDG President Scott Adams shared Mike's enthusiasm for the newly launched FireFly

Farms web site: "We've been providing a full range of design and development

services to our clients since 1991. Our work with FireFly Farms has been extremely

rewarding; it has provided our designers with a unique creative opportunity

and we were pleased to be able to integrate a content management tool that will

allow FireFly to maintain the site's content and its visually striking design.

We're proud of the site and the way it brings to life the spirit of the farm,

the farmers, and their wonderful cheeses." </p>

<p><br>

The FireFly Farms web site will roll out in two phases. Phase one has successfully

launched and establishes FireFly's web presence. Phase two, planned for early

in 2004, will offer expanded content and the ability to order FireFly's cheeses

on-line.</p>

<p>About FireFlyFarms Organic, Inc.<br>

FireFlyFarms Organic, Inc. is dedicated to the art of cheese making. FireFly

Farm's artisan cheeses are all made in the farmstead tradition - they are produced

with milk from their own goatherds. They take special care to ensure the purity,

quality, and clean flavor of the milk and all their cheeses are produced by

hand. Their aged cheeses are ripened naturally in a specially constructed aging

room - they shun short cuts and artificial techniques aimed at increasing yield

or shelf life at the expense of quality.</p>
