Tony Armstrong and his wife Linda bought their family farm in the fall of 2012 to live a more peaceful and self-sustainable existence, closing the gap between field and table. Set in the rolling hills of Northumberland County, their 120-acre farm is a mixture of field, forest and wetland with a beautiful view of Lake Ontario. The farmhouse is an eco-friendly, sustainable, straw-bale home that was designed and built as a modern farmhouse that accommodates family and business. Headwaters Community Farm grows organic food using permaculture and other ecological methods that Tony and Linda learned when they and their family volunteered on farms around the world. With the help of family, on-farm partners and many volunteers, they have built sustainable vegetable gardens and food forests, managed field crops and raised bees, chickens, goats, the occasional Highland cattle and soon sheep. Headwaters Education Centre and teaching kitchen offers workshops, retreats and special events focusing on sustainable living, homesteading skills and health and wellness. 

 

Maddie & Kiki, Canada’s favorite female grill experts, have fed thousands of barbecue-loving fans all across Canada and beyond. The sisters primarily grill with charcoal and have a blast showcasing their love for outdoor cookery during television appearances, at live on-stage grilling demonstrations, and on their social channels. Maddie & Kiki are on a mission to inspire people of all ages to have fun at the grill while enjoying the outdoors, so they take to the streets every week to spread BBQ cheer with their live Instagram segment called #BBQActsOfKindness. It’s a feel-good segment featuring four raw chickens and some spice rub, what could go wrong?! These Barbecue Entertainers are as close as two human-beings can possibly get (they live in separate houses but spend 98.5% of their time together) yet somehow they still manage to fight over who gets to drive when they hit the road, hungry for their next foodie adventure!
