Yorkshire Young Farmers is led by young people, for young people, the age frame to be a member is 10 to 28 years old. The clubs, district and county also rely on members out of age to help with the running of meetings and events. But the voice we all listen to and want to hear is the members.

Young farmers is a fantastic opportunity for young people it is an organisation that is like no other. It gives young people the fantastic opportunity to meet lifelong friends, learn new skills, make a real difference to the local community and even travel the world!

This website shows the range of activities on offer with how to guides on how to run meetings, set up an event or help with club problems etc. Our members are never on their own and their is always a friendly ear at the end of the phone.

So why not join today, and remember you don’t need to be a farmer to join young farmers!!
