Antonio and Pina Calio come from the province of Messina, in Sicily and migrated to Canada in ’63. They initially lived in Scarborough but in search of a big piece of land to be cultivated they decided to move to Stouffville, where they have been living for 20 years. They cultivate their huge garden in order to eat healthy and keep themselves active. Every year they can’t wait to try new products. They are passionate about traditional Sicilian cuisine.
