If ever there was a man to host an audience, it’s Nigel Wilson. Talented wood worker, skilled deer farmer and serious gastronome (among many other things), Nigel is never short of a lively yarn or two.

Q&A with Nigel from Garry River Farm

Why North Canterbury? North Canterbury has it all. History, arts, great food and beverage… We don’t need to go anywhere else!

What’s your favourite thing to do in North Canterbury? My favourite thing to do in the world is head out to Black Estate for their incredible Pinot & Pie. So good. We love to spend the whole day out that way cruising around looking for art galleries and second-hand stores.

Name your top three North Canterbury brands (other than your own, of course!): Derelict Brewing: Sam is a great guy and we have a mutually beneficial working relationship. Grown, in Sefton: These guys work so hard, and they deliver their veggie boxes all the way out here which are always excellent. Greystone Wines: Great people and great wine from a great spot.
