Enjoyed our tour of the farm! They also make and give samples of the yummiest cheeses!! We didn't realize that the Little Qualicum Cheeseworks and Mooberry Wine were the same place until we tried to go to the Cheeseworks on google and realized we'd been there. ☺️

Wine and cheese tasting was delicious, informative and fun. We found a couple wines we liked, cheese to pair with and some homemade onion bread to top it off!

A definite place to see in Parksville. The cheeseworks is a part of a farm that you can walk through. The cheese is marketed in many stores but here you can taste samples of all the cheese.

Little Qualicum Cheeseworks offers something for everybody, be it sampling cheeses and berry wines, or looking at the stables with the children. It is free, you can bring your own lunch and make use of the picnic tables. Very family friendly.

This is a combination cheese farm, dairy farm, winery and petting zoo. With this combination it actually works well and is a fun place to spend an afternoon with kids and family. Bring a picnic lunch and after you have spent some time with the animals plus sampled some cheese and wine plus purchase your favorite then you can sit... More

we had a wine tasting , and a tour of the barns and it was awesome . Phil and Lucas did a great job teaching us all about the farm. Great tasting wines , and fruit wines are hard to come by. Cheese is the best. Hope to come back here again soon.

We had a blast exploring the grounds and petting the farm animals. The cheese and wine available to purchase made it appealing to every age range in our family group.
