What are your thoughts on the future of farming?

There is a lot of short-term uncertainty with the Brexit deadline looming but this is the chance to influence the future of UK agriculture, which many YFC members will benefit from. The AGRI group provides the perfect platform to voice members’ opinions to the Government and NGOs to ensure that future policies are being set with young farmers at the core.

The friends I have made in my time in YFC have always kept it fun and keep me coming back to do more.
