Joining your local Young Farmers' Club could be the gateway to a whole world of new opportunities. From meeting friends you will keep for life, to discovering a skill you never even knew you had, there is so much more to Young Farmers than wellies and tractors!
It's up to you! Members help choose their own programmes throughout the year, but here are some of the basic things Young Farmers get up to!
If you’re aged between 10 and 26, love rural life and want to get involved in something new, then Young Farmers is for you! You certainly don’t need to be a farmer, in fact you don’t even need to own a pair of wellies. Young Farmers' Clubs will give you a great social life, friends for life and an opportunity to learn new skills.
Our clubs also cater for 'associate members' who can join after the age of 26 - contact your local county office for more info.
Membership costs vary as YFCs set their own subscription charges, but the price can be as low as £15 per year.
Joining Young Farmers’ Clubs is easy, just fill in the form on this page and we can help you find the right club for you. Or you can visit our county contacts, find your local YFC officer and give them a ring or drop them an email.
Every Young Farmers’ Club is unique. Some like to help out in the local community, some love to take part in competitions and others want to travel. Your county organiser will help find a club and get in contact with them to let them know you are interested. Then all you need to do is pop along to a meeting and see if you like it. Maybe you could take a friend too. With over 600 clubs, there will definitely be one that is perfect for you!
"I might be a farmer’s daughter but I couldn’t tell you how to milk a cow or plant a potato. And yet becoming a member of Young Farmers ten years ago was the best thing I ever did. The people I met back then are now my best friends and everything I’ve learnt along the way has shaped who I am." Emily Meikle
