Q&A with Richard Jackman from Three Llamas Coffee

Why North Canterbury?

We wanted to live just outside a city, having previously lived in big cities (Auckand and Lima). My parents had recently moved to Pegasus so North Canterbury made sense. A premises became availible in Woodend that had the right feel so we made the decision to make Woodend our home base for our coffee operations.

What’s your favourite thing to do in North Canterbury?

As a family we are very into our outdoor sports: football, touch rugby, as well I am a keen mountain biker and tramper. North Canterbury has everything we need on our doorstep and the small community feel is an added bonus.
