EPISODE 87 – HOSTING FARM TOURS ONLINE & ON THE FARM
On this week’s episode of The Rural Woman Podcast you’ll meet Charlotte Wasylik. Charlotte grew up and lives at Chatsworth Farm, a mixed farm near Vermilion, Alberta, started by her parents. They raise beef cattle, sheep, chickens for eggs and meat, geese, ducks, turkey, and grow grain and legume crops.
Chatsworth Farm practices sustainable farming methods and often sells products at the farm gate, directly to consumers. Charlotte is passionate about ag education and loves to get people excited about the farm through virtual and in-person farm tours; and also by incorporating events into the farm that highlight local foods and how their farm operates.
She attended NAIT in Edmonton, completing the Event Management, Visual Design, and Digital Publishing programs. Charlotte has enjoyed working in the events industry for seven years, with a focus on agriculture, most recently at Northlands in Edmonton, and her local ag society as an agricultural event coordinator. She moved back to the farm at the end of 2019 and has a full-time job off the farm as a marketing coordinator at the local credit union, so she farms in person after work and on weekends.
