Little Qualicum Cheeseworks was established in 2001 by Clarke and Nancy Gourlay. After a career in humanitarian aid and development, the Gourlays, including their three young sons, moved to Vancouver Island to be close to family and explore their dream of making Swiss-style artisan cheese. They started off on a rented farm, with a handful of cows, making cheese in a renovated school-portable.

With a growing team of staff and key involvement from Nancy’s parents Ray & Judy Haynes, they were able to purchase 88-acre Morningstar Farm in French Creek, the scenic region between Parksville and Qualicum beach, and Little Qualicum Cheeseworks found its permanent home.
