NFYFC and Savills have teamed up again to offer YFC members the chance to gain professional advice for future farming ventures.

The NFYFC business and tenancy training events are back by popular demand and will be essential support in a time of unprecedented change that British agriculture and the UK are facing. The training includes advice on post-Brexit markets and trading as well as insights on applying for a tenancy and share farming. 

The training will be held at five regional locations to help YFC members prepare for their farming future.

Hundreds of YFC members have gained plenty from past training sessions with Savills and enjoyed the benefits of professional tips and expertise from their business consultants.

YFC members will meet like-minded people and be able to take advantage of some valuable advice.

The training will help YFC members to:

  • Be prepared for a farming business future
  • Take advantage of professional advice

Refreshments will be provided and there is a £10 participation fee. A maximum number of 20 YFC members can attend each event, based on a first-come, first-served basis.
