Cherilyn Jolly-Nagel along with her family, farm in Southern Saskatchewan and grow durum wheat, chick peas, barley, canola and lentils. They are proud parents of two young farm girls.
Cherilyn is an energetic speaker and has stepped in front of hundreds of audiences, from farming crowds to anyone who likes to eat!
Her topics include: rebuilding public trust in food and farming, farm policy (it’s not just politics!), and connecting with urban cousins.
Her own life story ‘from Club Med to Camp Chickpea’ is a fascinating one that is relatable and inspiring for many audiences. As an example of this, Cherilyn was invited to participate in the Barbie: You Can Be Anything Mentorship program to spend time with a young girl who dreams of being a farmer one day.
Cherilyn has traveled extensively around the world and has had the opportunity to represent wheat farmers views on international trade while participating in such events as the World Trade Organizations Ministerial Meetings in Hong Kong. Traveling abroad has given her a unique perspective and appreciation for the agricultural industry and the incredible food we grow here in Canada.
