Posted by Scott On October - 23 - 2017

Harrowsmith magazine is back, and better than ever!

“It’s a time of great change,” says Harrowsmith publisher Yolanda Thornton. “Canadians are making advances to improve our relationship with the world around us, and we want to be there to showcase and celebrate the work they do. From new trends in farming and cultivation, to helping rural communities, respecting and protecting wildlife, and nurturing a healthier, greener, more conscientious way of participating in the world, Harrowsmith seeks to bring you those stories and help you connect with like-minded individuals. Our new magazine format and website help us do this in a more eloquent way.”

Art Director Meredith MacKinley has really nailed the re-launch cover for Harrowsmith’s return as a full-sized magazine.  This mouth-watering food-focused cover, hits all the right notes.

It will debut on Canadian newsstand November 20th, 2017, at a retail price of $6.99.


The new edition also heralds the launch of a new and expanded website for Harrowsmith, which features some of our favourite stories from the magazine, as well as fresh content, podcasts and videos.

Available online and in stores November 20, the Winter issue features delicious holiday recipes and inspiring DIY ideas. Harrowsmith’s new food editors, Latham Hunter and Rebecca Kinghorn, serve up some exciting new recipes for kitchen enthusiasts with their innovative soups for the season. From butternut squash to chicken pot pie and egg drop soup, these bowlfuls promise to surprise and delight. The issue also includes some twists on eggnog, including a French Toast recipe you just just have to try. We also have just the DIY project to help you get ready for the holidays. Our floating fireplace mantel is a great way warm up hearth and home this winter.

Also inside, Mark Cullen shares his tips for growing Amaryllis, year after year. And we profile a fascinating up and coming Canadian company that’s helping to shape how we grow edibles in the home.
