When food is borne from pure passion, you know it’s going to be great. Case in point: Little Farm Goat Dairy. What started as Andrea Gauland’s passion for “all things cheese-y” has turned into a humming little business producing and selling an array of small batch, handcrafted, top-notch goat cheeses.

Q&A With Andrea from Little Farm Goat Dairy

Why North Canterbury? When we emigrated to New Zealand nearly 20 years ago, from a small farm in Western New York state, we wanted to live within easy access to Christchurch. We kept drifting back to Oxford for its quiet country town feel. Oxford is more a destination than it used to be, having become a vibrant place in its own right.

What is your favourite thing to do in North Canterbury? EAT! So many wonderful eateries in North Canterbury, no need to go further afield. We also love the beaches and the farming communities, and all the lovely gardens which are open to the public at various times of the year.
