Norfolk Young Farmers

The organisation is going strong at a young ‘73’ years old! 

There are 12 senior clubs across the county whose members range from 14 to 26 years of age.

The senior clubs are ‘run by the members for the members’ by a committee who organise all club activities. These range from weekly meetings to competitions and social events.

YFC provides

·         Opportunities for personal and social development

·         A network for rurally isolated young people

·         Training opportunities

·         Access to the Skills Initiative Training Fund – “Helping young people step forwards” 

Norfolk YFC has received support for the Countrysider Project. The project is the junior arm of the organisation aimed at those young people aged 10-16 and aims to increase the education and understanding of the countryside and farming practises.

There are 15 Countrysider Clubs throughout the county which meet fortnightly, they have  packed programmes which include, farm visits, stock judging, presentations from gamekeepers, wildlife organisations and sometimes even practical butchery sessions! Their social activities include sports, cooking and creative nights. One of the main highlights in their year is the Conservation Campout which involves practical experience of land management and conservation. 

“The most valuable thing that I get from Countrysiders is knowledge” Downham Market Countrysider

“The Clan Trust has helped shape Countrysiders over the years by allowing its growth and enabling its success. For this support I wish to extend the thanks and appreciation of the entire organisation” Becca Horner, Norfolk YFC Chairlady
