Taste the difference!
The latest edition of Harrowsmith magazine is packed with mouth-watering flavour. From food innovators to a summer picnic makeover to culinary tours in Prince Edward County, this issue is full of delicious ideas to explore this season.
Out May 27, the Summer issue includes a celebration of Canada’s forward-minded food growers and innovators, producing everything from cricket powder to chickenless eggs. You’ll meet a lovely young couple growing mushrooms for local restaurants and farmers’ markets in Bonavista, Newfoundland. And we’ll also introduce you to a seafood delivery service that’s changing the way we think about our local fish counters.
Sampling local flavours is part of the draw of travel, and Phil Norton takes us to meet the purveyors drawing visitors to Prince Edward County. Shawn MacWha also takes us away, this time to Ottawa, to check out its thriving microbrewery scene.
We also catch up with Charlottetown chef Ilona Daniel for our regular Coffee with a Local, as she shares her favourite farmers’ market vendors and spots she likes to stop at.
Gardening Editors Mark and Ben Cullen take us on a tour of their favourite public gardens. They also make a strong case for growing beans at home, while sharing a more effortless alternative.
Zach Loeks shows us how to create edible ecosystems using companionship planting to improve yield and plant health and to maximize space.
Property Editor Steven Maxwell shares his guide to building your very own solar food dryer, along with his tips for trouble-shooting dimmers and lighting at home.
Of course, Food Editor Signe Langford returns with more show-stopping recipes, this time for a past-meets-future picnic that’s sure to wow your fellow gatherers.
As always, in the issue you’ll find Things We Love and Bookshelf, which offer more great ideas for the kitchen and beyond (including fun book picks for the kids!).
Plus so much more!
- We’ll take you on a bucket list-worthy tour of B.C.’s Sunshine Coast
- Vanessa Farnsworth examines the impact that earthworms are having on our forests
- Robert Dick explores the summer night sky

- No issue of Harrowsmith would be complete without our dear Dan Needles sharing his humorous musings from the country
“In Canada, summer is the time we connect most with the origins of our food and the questions that that raises. From eco-friendly practices to community-supported agriculture, Canadians are getting involved—by innovating new ways to grow with minimal ‘foodprint’ and supporting producers they trust. Harrowsmith’s readers understand the importance of nurturing the land, so it can in turn nurture us, and we’re proud to celebrate those at the forefront of change in making that happen,” 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).
