My name is Kevin Alexander and I started Alexander Computer Services because I am frustrated with the quality of support (or lack thereof!) people receive in the computer repair field. At my company you are getting a local, experienced professional who works to solve your specific issues while delivering peace of mind from start to finish. It is this one-on-one support and quality driven results that put Alexander Computer Services above the competition. If you have a computer issue, give me a call and see for yourself. I hope to hear from you soon."

AKA: a Kitchen Available.  A rentable Micro-Processing Kitchen.

Local Food.  A better taste. A better life.


Angela Nickle is the owner/operator of a small 10-acre family-operated farm located 10 minutes west of the Town of Uxbridge. In 2004, her family purchased the hobby farm, and launched the f.N. (family Nickle) Happy Farm shortly after in 2007. The main goal is to provide the local community with fresh, nutritious, sustainably-grown, chemical free food. They grow a wide variety of market garden produce – including heirloom varieties, edible flowers, and vegetables of interest to different ethnic groups – using non-chemical methods for fertilization and pest management.  They  raise free-range pasture animals (laying and meat chickens, sheep, turkeys, pigs, llamas, and others) in an integrated system where animals contribute to the farm operations (e.g. fertilizer from llama, pest control from chickens) and table. You can purchase their produce at their farm gate, through the Uxbridge Farmers Market, and through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) .  They run a CSA workshare program where CSA members pay half the share of weekly produce boxes in exchange for at least four hours a week , carrying out tasks in the market garden.

Angela’s next project involves establishing a Micro-Processing Kitchen – to be named “A.K.A. – A Kitchen Available” – in Uxbridge, Ontario. The Kitchen will be fully equipped for processing local seasonal food (e.g., drying, freezing, baking, grilling, juicing, and pressing) and will be accessible to all interested individuals and groups including food entrepreneurs, local producers, chefs, bakers, community organizations, and residents. This Kitchen project has three innovative aspects that make it stand out from other processing kitchens: 1) a focus on local seasonal food – all aspects of the Kitchen will focus on promoting local food, from sourcing produce from farms in and around Uxbridge and Durham Region to educating community members about the benefits of local food; 2) actively engaging people in local food – through educational seminars, networking, and creating a local food hub; and 3) providing educational processing support in addition to the physical space that meets all health regulations and equipment to process foods into produce for sale or home consumption.
