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.

At Airborne Trampoline KW, leapers of all ages defy gravity on the centre's six Olympic-style trampolines. Custom mats and padding surround each trampoline to ensure safe landings. Trampoline coaches certified by Gymnastics Ontario and the NCCP watch over visiting jumpers and recreational classes of students aged 6 through adult as they leap, flip, and twirl through basic moves and advanced tricks. When not leading classes, coaches also host tryouts for an in-house competition team. The centre also provides decorated private rooms and basic catering services for birthday parties, during which children combine the joy of birthdays with the thrill of hugging clouds they've herded indoors.

Katerina Atapina sees no conflict between fun and professionalism. Armed with degrees in both art and education, she designs classes that underpin the exuberant artwork of kids and adults with a firm grasp of colour theory, design principles, and technique. Even high-school students often turn to the school to develop the skills they’ll need to pursue careers in comic-book illustration, animation, and fashion design. Weekly workshops and art classes for adults and children focus on painting, ceramics, watercolours, and sculpture, and summer camps help students beat the heat by painting ice-cold pictures of lemonade or crocheting a ceiling fan.

In business for 25 years on the same 20-acre property, the experienced trainer at Deerfield Farm teaches individualized introductory riding lessons on a variety of steeds, from schoolmasters to former show horses. Before mounting one of Deerfield Farms' school horses for a half-hour canter, apprentice equestrians spend 30 minutes at the stable-and-horse orientation, familiarizing themselves with their steed's build, temperament, and favourite Jonas brother. Lessons ingrain strong basic riding skills in pupils, emphasizing safe horsemanship and smooth, rhythmic gaits while increasing rider confidence and control. A trainer of introductory-level through Grand Prix riders, Deerfield Farm owner and coach Grant Field customizes each session around particular horses and riders, ensuring successful pairings of hand and hoof. The farm's facility also boasts an 18-stall bank barn, two tack rooms, two outdoor grass rings, and a bouncy castle for pony birthday parties.
