For poster-ity…more than 15,000 of these posters will be displayed across England and Wales as part of the National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs New Members Week which kicks off tomorrow (Oct 20). More than 730 clubs will hold events, with a key aim to "dispel the myth" that you have to be a farmer to join a YFC.
