Lovely little visit there in December and will definitely visit in the spring and summer when we can view more. Friendly staff. Excellent cheese and shared with friends as appies for holiday visits. Mooberry wine will try when our home made runs out. Worth a visit - off the beaten track but well sign posted. Fun for families!

Fun working farm - with lots of access to the animals and the general operation of this well kept and well operated farm. Then there is the cheese - BEST CHEESE EVER ! We got to sample so many and of course we bought lots too. The staff are very helpful and friendly. I highly recommend for all ages.

This is a store wrapped in a farm and winery. Great choices in chesse and berry wines. If you not sure what to buy, you get to do a taste test first and decide on the best pairings. After the store we visited some nearby bovine chesse contributors . . . nice place for all ages.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Little Qualicum Cheeseworks. You are able to test all the cheeses before buying and they have wine tastings too. A great attraction for a rainy day or when taking a break from the beach.

On vacation and visiting our friends in the Tidesmen Chorus -- they had a Christmas show and in the program was an ad for the Little Qualicum Cheeseworks and Mooberry Wines. We meandered our way through the countryside on a lovely day and parked in the parking area (not sure what to expect at this time of the year.). Well,... More

As well as a 'hunt for the animals' for the children , you can watch the cows being milked take a pleasant walk and a shop for their own cheese and wine. Perfect place for local gifts. Entry is free

Working family farm located in French Creek/Parksville produces award-winning cheddar and brie cheeses. Arrive on Thursday afternoon in time to sample and buy their special fresh cheese curds which "squeak" in your mouth. And don't forget to sample their superior fruit wines which can be paired with a wide assortment of their cheeses. Overall, it's a great mini-experience for the... More
