The start of naked calendar season

Naked calendar season is practically a season in its own right these days.

The Gamebirds calendar kicked things off last week and hot on their heels are Ponteland YFC from Northumberland, who are hoping to raise stacks of cash for Farm Crisis network and their club.

Photographer George Swift captured the young farmers in a range of typical farming scenes like harvest, fencing, horse riding and a typical farmer’s kitchen.

Here’s the group in all their glory in the front cover shot:

Chairman Jen Craighead said: “We wanted to do something which was fun but which raised money. We’ve seen other calendars which were similar but we went all out and got everything off. There’s not a thong in sight.”

We especially love this Lady Godiva-inspired shot of comps secretary Nikki Baxter.

The calendar, which can be ordered now, has been stocked in local shops and has already received quite a bit of interest.

“We’ve had international interest with an American shop putting in an order for them,” Jen added. “We thought they were joking at first but they weren’t.”

Calendars can be bought for £10+p&p by emailing pontelandyoungfarmers@gmail.com or contact Northumberland YFC on 01661 872 562.
