National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

09 December 2013

Ever wondered what it’s like to star in a TV programme? In the winter issue of Ten26, you can find out by reading one member’s story.

Kate Watts, from Ledbury YFC, has taken part in the filming for the new series of the Channel 4 show First Time Farmers, which will be back on screens in 2014.

As a first time dairy farmer, Kate wanted to get involved in the programme to show others the opportunities in the industry and to dispel myths about farming.

“I don’t look like the typical farmer,” said Kate. “If you saw me on a night out, you wouldn’t think that I milk cows.”

You can read more about Kate in the latest issue of Ten26 that is landing on doormats this week – just in time for Christmas.

It’s packed with stories from members and includes a focus on the competition winners from the Malvern Show and the Farm Skills weekends.

There’s also a fantastic photo of the new Council members that is a pastiche of a famous Beatles album cover. See if you can spot your representative among the crowd.

You can also read about Matthew Ranson – the youngest member of the Youth Forum – and get some top tips for club nights.

There’s also an insight to life as an agricultural journalist thanks to a week in the life of Louise Hartley from Clitheroe YFC, who works for Farmers Guardian.

Everyone who was registered as a member on the database by the end of November will receive a copy of Ten26. The next issue will be out in March and to receive a copy you will need to be a current member and on the database before the end of February.

To be featured in a future issue of Tem26, please email Emily Meikle with a few lines about why you would like to be in the magazine. We are always looking for interesting jobs to profile and Young Farmers to interview, so get in touch!
