Steve and Lisa Cooper haven't just vowed to stick together through sickness and health. The recipients of 2010's Ontario Outstanding Young Farmers award have made that pledge to their land, practicing sustainable, eco-friendly farming that yields Cooper's CSA Farm & Maze's wealth of produce. Through their community-supported agriculture program, the Coopers' pair members with weekly baskets of veggies, fruits, and meats such as free-range chicken, hormone- and antibiotic-free Angus-grade beef, and pasture-fed goat and Berkshire pork. Their farm store stocks the same locally produced goods alongside preserves, local honeys, dressings, and cured meats.
Tours of the family-owned farm give guests a behind-the-scenes look at the Coopers’ methods, along with wagon rides that wend through the property and goat and chicken walks that introduce visitors to the livestock. Elsewhere on their grounds, a 10-acre corn maze stymies attempts to navigate its labyrinthine twists, a pumpkin patch overflows with gourds ripe for picking, and horse swings let youngsters mimic galloping on small steeds without having to shrink a real horse in the dryer.
Artsy Baker's team of confectionery wizards crafts customized baked goods for all occasions, from chocolate-skull cakes for Halloween to Muppet cupcakes for kids’ birthday parties. Working with more than 25 cupcake and 10 cake varieties, bakers frost their housemade designs with icings including caramel buttercream and cream cheese.
While Artsy Baker can easily make enough lemon or red velvet cakes to feed as few as 5 and as many as 100 people, the company also supplies customers with ingredients to make their own cakes at home. These cake and cupcake mixes are nut-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, and vegan. Homemade treats can be topped with ready-to-use fondant, which helps aspiring cake artists to make cakes more legit than a CPA’s notarized tax return. In addition, Lil' Artsy Baker birthday parties impart decorating tips to kids, letting them haul their masterpieces away in take-home boxes.
On their 25-acre parcel of scenic countryside, Rosemary Richardson and Sarah Thomas, Gemstone Equestrian’s mother-daughter team, teach students to ride properly and respect their equine friends. Lessons are held year-round either outside or within the indoor facilities and cater to riders of all experience levels, whether they aim to ride recreationally or for competition. Students choose among the riding arts of dressage, which stresses obedience and balance; hunter/jumper, which takes place on the hunter course or jumper ring; and Western, which focuses on how to visit the Pacific by hitching a skateboard to a team of wild horses. No matter the riding style, safety remains of utmost importance—the center offers ASTM–approved helmets for no extra charge and caps lessons at a 1:2 staff-to-student ratio for beginners and 1:4 for experienced riders.
At Pro Dojos, certified martial-arts experts lead students of all ages and skill levels through a variety of pugilistic disciplines. Each location is independently owned, so the martial-arts styles may vary, but many offer karate, tae kwon do, kick-boxing, aikido, and jujitsu classes. The instructors elucidate the noble combat arts to kiddos as young as 4 years old, helping them build strength and motor skills while instilling the values of self-confidence. Teen classes focus on honing discipline and treating yourself and others with respect, and adult classes reinforce cardiovascular conditioning, strength, balance, and coordination. The instructors also lead classes for the whole family, allowing them to bond as a unit, which could possibly lead to starring in a hit sitcom about a crime-fighting family who takes down comical villains in their idyllic suburban neighborhood.
Sleek white couches sit pristinely below a modernist chandelier, overlooking a manicured row of bamboo stalks. If guests arriving in Thornhill Smile Centre's waiting room feel as though they have taken a wrong turn into a nearby spa, that's no accident: Dr. Hagi and his corps of teeth-cleaning experts have worked for years to create the most comfortable, relaxing dental experience possible. Once inside treatment rooms, guests sink further into luxury, snuggling beneath warm blankets and using contoured pillows to cradle necks while remaining en garde for an impromptu pillow fight. Gentle vibrations massage backs during procedures while satellite radio or HDTV further distract minds from treatments. All the while, top-of-the-line technology streamlines experiences, with virtual mouth modeling, digital X-rays, and noise-dampened hand pieces.
