What is Young Farmers? 

National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs (NFYFC) is the largest rural youth organisation in the UK dedicated to young people who have a love for agriculture and rural life. There are 644 Young Farmers’ Clubs in England and Wales dedicated to supporting young people in agriculture and the countryside.

Led by young people, for young people, Abingdon YFC is part of Oxfordshire YFC. Young Farmers is for people aged 10 to 26 with a unique opportunity to develop skills, work with their local communities, travel abroad, take part in a varied competitions programme and enjoy a dynamic social life.

 

You don't need to be involved in farming to be a Young Farmer - just someone who appreciates the countryside and enjoys rural life.

Each year Young Farmer clubs nationwide choose charities to support and fund raise for. Abingdon YFC is no exception! From 18th - 21st April 2017, eight Abingdon YFC members cycled 210.5 miles on tandem bikes from Abingdon in Oxfordshire to Torquay in Devon in order to raise money for Blue Skye Thinking. This is a local Abingdon charity who raise money for new research and treatments into childhood brain tumours. In total we successfully raised £5,500!
