Stopped by on a Sunday afternoon. Lovely little farm with horses, donkey's, pigs, cows, etc. Perfect for a family visit. Oh… and the CHEESE! Bought enough to last a while!

We went here to get our cheese at the source but were pleasantly surprised by the full experience of cheeseworks. An adorable family friendly farm full of quirky humour, happy animals and delicious treats. Loved it!

Whenever in Parksville we always stop here- it was a very interesting place when visiting in the past with children- to see how a farm works. Now we stop to taste the cheese and wine. All flavours of cheese and spreads can be tasted free of charge. The wine too. If you like raspberry you have to try the raspberry... More
