2 Dirty Aprons, created in 2019, is a mother-daughter collab where we craft great recipes and share our lifestyle on our farm with you. Windswept Farm in Creemore, Ontario, is our home base, where we try to use local ingredients in the kitchen and cook as healthy as possible (of course with the odd brownie or two thrown in). For now, a dog named Daisy, a cat named Kevin, 4 goats named Chai, Leo, Sadie, and Hopper, 4 ducks, and 5 chickens (and a couple of human men) are great company and we are constantly grateful for it all.
During the pandemic, looking for things to keep us busy, we decided to open a small shop in Creemore called 2DA Market. We initially focused on selling cookware and home goods. Then the first wave of Covid ended and we realized no one was wanting to spend time in their kitchens so we pivoted and now carry a wide array of goods, including clothing and jewelry.
Although we love to cook, we also get up to other antics. Tessa, the Small Apron, is in her first year at McGill University after spending four years at a ski academy in Collingwood, Ontario. She has spent much of her life devoted to high-performance ski racing. Laurie, AKA Mama Apron, is a talented artist who has spent many years honing her craft in her studio in Creemore. Both of the Aprons have more to offer than just cooking (as you can probably tell from our cooking videos...) and find joy in connecting with others on our journeys. We bring back our experiences and share them at the farm through food and lifestyle. We hope that you join us on our voyage and enjoy every step of the way!
