I visited Tiger Lily Farms in late August 2014 with my husband and children for a trail ride. The staff were very helpful and my children were thrilled to be riding. My children also enjoyed the interaction with the farm animals before and after the trail ride.

Unfortunately on the trail ride we rode past lots of garbage: a huge garbage pile waiting to be burned (according to staff) with scarecrows from last fall still there, pipes to be used for fencing?, plastic bags and tarps that have been there for years and a partially buried under dirt, etc., etc. The trail ride was just for 1/2 hour so it looped back and forth through their property. It's a beautiful piece of property but really needs a big clean-up, especially if you're going to be taking visitors through it every day.

FYI - The outhouse was really stinky and filled with flies, so we chose not to use it because it was that bad. If you're going to Tiger Lily - go to the bathroom somewhere else before you get there!

Still, the staff were great and the farm animals were great. This place would be totally amazing if it was just cleaned up a bit.

We have been going to Tiger Lily Farms for years. My teenage kids still love going there. The owner, Cecil, does a fantastic job in keeping the farm rustic and "farm like" while allowing truly hands on experience for all to enjoy. For a very reasonable admission, you can milk a goat, pick up baby chicks, frolic with the goats, pet baby calves and sheep, collect eggs from the hen's nests, check out the piglets plus more and go for a guided pony ride (which is also included with admission).. For older kids and adults, there is trail riding. Our favourite is the 1 1/2 hour ride where we enjoy beautiful treed scenery and varied winding trails. The trail riding guides, like Michelle, are fantastic and the horses are very well looked after. I would highly recommend you check it out.

We were staying in Parksville looking for something to do for 30 minutes and saw it on TripAdvisor so thought we would pop by. It was very fun for the kids. Expect to spend 1 to 1.5 hours here. Maybe less if your kids don't like to pet farm animals.

The kids got to milk a goat/ feed a baby goat, pet bunnies, goats/ ride a pony. See chickens and collect their eggs, see pigs... so for our city dwelling kids this was a blast!

The staff was very friendly and the place wasn't overly busy so just a very relaxing nice visit! Highly recommended for kids 2-10.

Three of us booked an hour long trail ride. The price is quite good but we did the same loop multiple times. We found out that because the forestry roads were closed due to fire bans they have to stick to their own property. Everyone in our party felt the person who booked our ride should have disclosed this information. We expected to get a decent trail ride but were disappointed.
Now the roads are open I will be booking again but just be aware if you are booked during a fire ban be sure to ask about road closures.

I visited the hobby farm with my grandkids. We had a wonderful day visiting all the animals. There were kittens and baby chicks the children could cuddle.
We stayed for a few hours and had a picnic lunch there.
The children enjoyed the pony rides as well. Staff were super friendly helping feed and milk a goat.

My son was first to raise the hand when the farmer girl ask who wants to try it first - kids get to milk the goat one by one! Waw, what a experience for city kids. They have a lot of animals you can pet. The farm was very clean; well, for a farm. There is a outdoor washroom and sink/soap so you can wash your hand. And offcours the pony ride is very popular with the little ones.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a great time petting all the animals. We spent around an hour there. We had a pony ride, goat milking and egg collecting to do. We had such a good time we (the grown ups) returned in the afternoon to go horse riding.
I would suggest being there first thing because they do get busy and they seem to stay busy all day.

Found it was quite pricey just to see a small handful of farm animal varieties. It is specifically geared towards younger children and therefore, parents shouldn't have to pay as much since all they do is stand and watch their kids run around.

Visited over Easter long weekend, so it was a pretty busy farm while we were there -- had the feeling of being a bit too busy though... way too many people and not quite enough space to put everyone (or their cars).

Friendly staff, and a good variety of animals to see... and of course, the pony ride :) Worth the stop, with exception perhaps on a holiday weekend!

This place is great. We visited with two kids, 4 and 7. We all had a great time. There are so many opportunities to pet, feed and milk the animals.

There are more hands on opportunities here than other farm attractions and kids love it. The staff is helpful and friendly.

Family prices. Most everything is included in the admission price - all the access, pony rides and even (we came on Easter) coffee, hot chocolate, eggs and cookies to decorate. It was refreshing to visit somewhere that they didn't always have their hand out i.e. I hate it when you pay admission and then you are continually asked for more money for this or that.

Even with some rain, there were enough things to do under cover that you could still have a good time.

Can't say enough good things. We'll be back.
