Farm rules

Q: What should I bring? A: Dress for the farm, with closed-toed shoes, layers, and a hat (good for sun AND rain!), and water bottles. Also: face mask, hand sanitizer (we’ll have some but it’s always a good idea to have your own), sunscreen, insect repellent, and a lunch or snack including beverage and picnic blanket, which you can enjoy while picnicking in our pasture (no food/beverages will be available on-site) Q: Can I bring my pet? S/he’s very well behaved! A: No. For our animals' health and safety, and the health and safety of all participants, please leave your pets at home. Q: Will there be toilets and hand-wash stations available on site? A: Yes, there will be portable washrooms and sanitation stations on site. Handicapped access units will be available as well. Q: Can I smoke, or consume alcohol or cannabis, while attending Open Farm Days? A: No. Smoking is not permitted on the farm and there are no designated smoking areas on the property; the risk of fire with straw and hay bales, machinery, and fuel on the premises is great. The consumption of alcohol and cannabis are also not permitted. Q: Are there drinking water refill stations on site? A: Yes, get the full farm experience and fill your bottles at our hydrant with fresh cool well water! Q: Where can I park my car/van/truck? A: We'll have designated parking areas so please follow the signs and parking directors upon arrival. Q: What if I’m not feeling well on the morning of Saturday, August 15th, but I’ve registered to attend? A: Please stay home and look after yourself. We’ll see you next year!

    Visiting Chatsworth Farm has been the highlight of my year! It was so easy to book our tour time and get excited for the upcoming visit. Google directions were clear and precise, giving us the ability to enjoy a wonderful country drive. When we arrived check in was a breeze with friendly faces and helpful information for our upcoming tour. Alex was our tour guide and he was kind, welcoming and gave us so much insight into the everyday life of the farm. We felt safe and informed which gave us the ability to feel free to enjoy the tour. The tour was full of great information and it was wonderful to meet so many of the animals we had seen through Instagram. It was a joy to get to connect to Chatsworth Farm so effortlessly. We cannot wait for our next visit. Thank you for making the trip so memorable, your farm is so special and we are lucky to have gotten an up close view.

    A big thank you to the Wasylik family for the visit to Chatsworth Farm. As retired farmers it was great to see and hear about the various agri-ventures this family has engaged in. The tour was top quality with lots of explanations on the raising and care of animals, growing feed and storage - something new for our city-grandkids! The flower and vegetable gardens were awesome. Again, thank you and congratulations for hosting Alberta Open Farm Days!

    We had a great time. Thank you for allowing us to visit your farm. The only thing that could have made it better would have been if the speakers could have used a microphone. Since we are supposed to be physical distancing, it was hard to hear, and some people were crowding close to the speaker. Some people not wearing masks were getting too close to the very small children who are too young to wear a mask themselves. We know this was not the fault of the organizers, but the attendees. The children loved being able to pet the animals. Thank you for a great experience.

    It was a beautiful afternoon to visit Chatsworth Farm for a tour. Having watched most of Charlotte's online tours I was excited to see the actual things we were shown on video. Both Alex and Charlotte did an excellent job in explaining "life on the farm"! Yes Rosie was a favourite feature. The farm store was also a hit! I shall enjoy my cheese curds from the Old School Cheesery, and the fresh garden produce and beef from Chatsworth Farm😋.
