So if our #FabulousYoungFarmers’ series caught your eye here’s how to get involved:
- Find Your Local Club
With over 600 clubs nationwide, there should be one close to you! Here is a map to demonstrate that:
2. Contact The Chairman
Facebook is a great place to see what the club has been up to. Once you have found your local club, ring the chairman, or message them on Facebook, and chat to them about their meetings. That’ll give you a good idea if it is the sort of thing it will involve. Find out when the next meeting is, and go!
An interest in the countryside may be beneficial for some of the meetings, but many see Young Farmers’ as a place to socialise with like-minded people. It’s always good if you’ve got someone you know to go along with but if not, everyone is so welcoming, trust me. You really become a family.
Being a Young Farmer, and involved in the many activities that it entails, really does boost your confidence, through competitions such as drama and public speaking.
Young Farmers’ can open up so many opportunities for learning new skills, travelling the word and making friends for life. Plus, it looks great on the CV, especially if you end up in one of the club roles!
