Program Title: The Duck Handshake and Tour of Prince Edward County
Description: 1.) Patti Thompson is one of four sisters who run King Cole Ducks near Stouffville, Ontario. That farm has been running for almost 70 years over three generations. It was a bit of an oddball at first, ducks just weren’t as popular as beef and chicken in the fifties, but a few decades later, a wave of Chinese immigration washed upon Canada’s shores and that, and an handshake changed the company forever.

2.) Phillip Norton is an avid photographer and a lover of Prince Edward County. He leads van tours around the kind-of-an-island that juts out into the northeastern part of Lake Ontario near Belleville. Host Wayne MacPhail caught up with Phillip between van trips and learned about the alcohol soaked past of that landscape and the wine and locals that set it apart.
