Toronto, Ontario on November 19, 2018—

Celebrate the season with Harrowsmith magazine…

From backyard skating rink nostalgia to scrumptious holiday recipes, the latest edition of Harrowsmith magazine brings you the best of winter.


Available in stores November 19, the Winter issue includes advice from Mark Cullen and his son Ben on how to prepare your garden for the cooler months and add interest to your property for year-round enjoyment.


This is the time of year we turn indoors, and DIY expert Steven Maxwell breaks down the pros and cons of different insulation options on the market today, and also compares wood stoves and pellet stoves to help you with your choice.


A variety of growers, producers and homesteaders show us how they make it through the winter months—from sheep breeding to overwintering livestock to insulating greenhouses. We also explore citizen science with the annual Christmas Bird Count event that takes place across the country.


It’s not all work though, and play comes in the form of our animal tracking guide and ice fishing feature. Robert Dick shows us how to catch the light play in the sky, including best times and places to see the Northern Lights. And Harrowsmith Food Editor Signe Langford shows us how to celebrate the holidays Scandinavian-style, with recipes for Maple Sugar Cranberry Pulla and Cedar Poached Ontario Trout as well as Scandi Ricotta Cake with Cardamom-Maple Roasted Plums and Raisins.


“We’re so excited to share these intrinsically Canadian stories with our readers and community,” says Harrowsmith publisher Yolanda Thornton. “Winter is a time to reflect, restore and gather round. Our contributors share fascinating insights into life on the farm and their DIY lifestyles, and together with them we celebrate the season and our shared values of sustainable living. Together we are clearing a brighter, more earth- and people-friendly way for the future.”




Harrowsmith is the only publication of its kind that can honestly dub itself “Made in Canada.” We are 100% Canadiana. In fact, if you open the magazine and inhale really deeply, you can actually smell maple syrup. Maybe a buttermilk pancake. Harrowsmith is produced four times a year with four print issues (spring, summer, fall, winter).


MEDIA INTERVIEWS: Publisher Yolanda Thornton, Editor-in-chief Jules Torti, Home and Property Editor Steve Maxwell and Gardening Editors Mark and Ben Cullen are available now for media interviews. We can also provide additional copies to give away as prizes to your readers or listeners.
