THINGS TO DO
Morningstar Farm is a working heritage dairy farm and home to Little Qualicum Cheeseworks and MooBerry Winery. There’s always something going on, and we are open year-round!
Some activities you can enjoy on your visit with us:
- Take a self-guided tour
- Stroll through the trails
- Stay for a picnic
- Wander through the barns and check out the animals – calves, pigs, goats, sheep, bunnies and the donkeys
- Stop in at the Farmgate Store for samples of our cheese and wine products and browse the unique giftware selection
- Chat with our wine maker and learn about our fruit wines
- Watch the cheese makers in action
Join us at the 12th annual Jazz, Tea & Cheesecake at Morningstar Farm, home of Little Qualicum Cheeseworks in Parksville on Sunday July 16th at 1:30pm.
You’ll find acres of assisted parking and relaxed lounging space for you and your lawn chair in the grassy shade. Come and enjoy Judy’s delectable home grown cheesecake, Phil’s cool fruit wine samples, tea, coffee, and of course, great jazz!
Please note: student tickets $10 at the door (under age 10 is free!)
