  • There are a large selection of some tasty chesses but they do seem to charge a hefty premium for them. 
  • 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 g...  more »
  • 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!

  • The farm tour was okay, but to be honest I didn't pay much attention. I was here for the store, which contains excellent fruit wines and cheeses. The wines are much better than you would expect. Not sweet at all. The gooseberry wine is as tart as can be, and the blueberry wine smells faintly of lavender. And the cheeses are delicious. I especially liked the red wine cheese and feta with herbs.
  • So much to see and do. Great seeing the open barns and the robot milking process! Enjoyed the wine and cheese tasting!!
  • Perfect family outing. Young kids loved the scavenger hunt and farm. Could have brought the kids a few times in the same week and they would have had fun. Oh, and the cheese is good too.
  • Superb variety of cheeses. We were encouraged and tasted all the fruit wines. Delicious! I was fascinated with the robotic milking operation and the way the cows queued eagerly to enter.
  • Very good quality and lots of variety. Wine tasting as well(Mooberry Wines)
