This is a quaint, overly-folksy in the Branson/Ozarks manner of folksy, working dairy farm and winery. The aim was very much young family-oriented, though I had only selected the winery based on the fact that it was a winery and not for the petting zoo aspect. It was very clean (caveat: for a working farm), the staff was friendly, and... More

Saw this and was needing a break. The wines were not to my liking but lots of people there did like it, the cheese was yummy. Loads of cheese and wine to try. The walk round the farm was nice, some good humourous notices. The ice cream was nice on a warm day

We try to get to Parksville/Qualicum once a year and this year was special since we were able to introduce my grandson to our tradition for the first time. The Cheeseworks is part of Morningstar Farm and there is no cost to wander around looking at the farm animals. The signage is hilarious yet educational at the same time. This... More

We were all over 60 but enjoyed our visit. There was lots to see and taste. It was nice to see the cows close by and see how well they are cared for. The owners have obviously put a lot of thought and effort into creating an imaginative and informative location as well as making delicious cheese.

Every time we go to Qualicum beach we make it a point to stop and pick up very fresh cheese curds. You can watch them make the cheese curds on Thursdays. They had just finished bagging them when we purchased ours. They have farm animals around so for the delight of the children can walk up to them. For our... More

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.
