National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

04 May 2017


Farmers Weekly is on the hunt for the Rising Stars of the UK agriculture, food and environmental industries.

 They’ve teamed up with the Woodland Trust to launch a search for individuals aged 18-35, who are already making a real impact in their sector and are ones to watch for the future.

The aim is to recognise and promote the talents of the next generation of farmers, agricultural professionals, academics, researchers and others in the food and farming supply chain.

Farmers Weekly want to hear about people who are making a mark, people who are changing things for the better – it doesn’t matter whether it’s on the family farm, in the laboratory, in a big multinational business or anywhere in-between.

The initiative aims to inspire young people from outside food and farming to consider this vibrant and fast-moving industry as a potential career choice.

Nominations are welcome from everyone – no matter what your relationship is to the nominee – family member, friend, manager, colleague or mentor.

Self-nominations are also welcome.

The deadline for nominations is midnight 28 May 2017 and for further details visit
