Very nice place to bring visitors to when in Parksville. Brought my in-laws who really enjoyed walking the farm on the self-guided tour, and sampling the cheese and wine.

A great place to spend some seeing the farm animals, sampling a large variety and selection of cheeses made on site from milk produced on the farm or watching cows being milked. Friendly staff are always on hand to answer questions whether you are tasting their Moonerry fruit wines or looking for that something special to take home from their... More

This is a wonderful stop just after Parksville. It is a short drive off of the highway and the little farm is at the end of a little country road. There are animals to see, fun signs to read, and delicious cheese to eat. My son is nine and this is the highlight of his trip...always! Because there are so... More

Spent an afternoon here with friends and their 8 year old daughter. Working farm that has treasure hunts for kids, animal stalls to explore, petting areas, wine to taste and cheese to eat. Very interactive and great for every age - best of all it's free!!

It is a great way for parents to introduce their kids to how a farm works and all of the effort that is needed to keep it working day after day. The farm is very kid-friendly for toddlers and adults (and they can see... More

This is an awesome place to bring the kids for the morning! We've visited a few times both this summer and last summer. Our kids (now 6, 4 & 2) have a great time visiting the animals, walking around, having a picnic and climbing on the tractors, and we love picking up cheese and wine on our way out. If... More

Even if you dont want to see the animals and farm, just go for the cheese ! So many varieties, and so good. You will have to refrain from buying too much !!!

We were heading to the check out the cheese and arrived to much more! Morningstar Farm was right there too and awesome for the kids, and any animal lover. As a working farm it was so cool that there were workers to ask questions too. There was a calf born the night before we arrived. In addition there is also... More
