It is National Young Farmers’ Week, a time where we come together and celebrate all that makes YFC such an exciting and unique part of young people’s lives.

With more than 24,500 members and 619 clubs, the National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs (NFYFC) is one of the largest rural youth organisations in the UK.

All this week (18-24 September) thousands of members are proudly and loudly banging the drum of the “YFC army” to encourage newbies to sign up and raise awareness of the amazing stuff they get up to.
