National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement


Our democratic membership structure means that we have various county, area and national gatherings to discuss our input to programmes and the running of the YFC organisation.  YFC AGRI - a group of regional young farmers who represent YFC members and an NFYFC staff member - hold regular online AGRI Futures meetings and three formal meetings a year during the NFYFC Council weekends to discuss a variety of ongoing topics as well as programme planning and delivery.

The group has an AGRI Ambition document which highlights its aims for Your Future Countryside.The YFC AGRI Ambition comprises the following topics and you can see further detail by visiting the full document:

  1. Rural Community
  2. Food and Farming
  3. Innovating our Future

See the AGRI Ambition document here and the AGRI position paper: Considerations for a future British Agricultural Policy

YFC AGRI is responsible for a diverse range of work: representation of young farmer views nationally and regionally; a varied programme of training, events, visits and resources for all YFC members, supported by various funders; responses to relevant rural and agricultural industry and government consultations as well as information exchange and positive PR. AGRI work and suggestions are also represented within the NFYFC SourceCurve training modulescompetitions and available industry training, offers and affinity deals. Young people recently surveyed told us there was not enough information about affordable rural housing so YFC AGRI joined forces with English Rural who have created this informative guide.

The group’s work is available for all YFC members. It’s relevant for anyone who has an interest in agriculture and the countryside. YFC AGRI welcomes YFC members to get in touch with questions and suggestions and play an active part in forthcoming events.
