From preparing hot peppers to building your own smokehouse, the latest edition of Harrowsmith magazine is sure to heat things up thanks to its Fire theme.

Available in stores November 18, the Winter issue includes advice from Mark Cullen and his son Ben for growing hot peppers and adding them to your spice rack. Mark and Ben also share how to attract winter birds to your property all season long. Home and Property Editor Steve Maxwell shows us how to build our very own smokehouse, and also breaks down what we need to know about in-floor heating.

It’s the season for gathering family and friends for cozy celebrations at home, and Food Editor Signe Langford shares delicious ideas and recipes for entertaining during this festive time of year. Our editors also share Things We Love and their book picks, which make for great gift giving ideas too this season.

There’s nothing prettier than fresh fallen snow, and this issue Harrowsmith serves up plenty of staycation ideas to make the most of the season. From winter camping to a tour of The Laurentians, check out the best of what the season has to offer.

There’s no doubt a roaring fire makes a cold winter’s day all the more enjoyable. Yet, fire can also wreak havoc, as seen in the devastating wildfires hitting the West Coast. Vanessa Farnsworth explores the potential of a future filled with smoke and fire, as well as how we can prevent wildfires and reduce risk of outbreak in the years to come.

Certainly making more sustainable choices in our day to day lives can make a difference, as Marie Eisenmann knows. The Quebec homesteader and her family live off the grid in an earthship built 40 years ago. This issue, they share their story.

The late Gordon Beck was another who worked to preserve our landscapes for the future. Phil Norton writes about the Ontario photographer, who spent his final years documenting Ontario barns for new generations and to honour a way of life.

“Winter is a time to reflect on the past, and plan for the future. This issue of Harrowsmith is the perfect companion for acknowledging the great work being done, as people and communities head back to the land in an attempt to live more harmoniously with our planet—as well as the work still to be done,” says Harrowsmith publisher Yolanda Thornton.


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.

MEDIA IMAGES: Hi-res and lo-res images of HARROWSMITH’s latest cover are available for download from our website.
