Welcome to the Hampshire Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs New Website

25/03/2014

Hampshire YFC was originally formed in the 1930’s to create a social club for young people living in the countryside.  Today in 2014, our function is the same – to provide fun for the younger rural community! After all, we are the future of the British countryside!

So, how do we do this?

Socialising

Young Farmers Clubs (YFC) gives you a great opportunity to socialise and make many new friends. There are literally hundreds of YFC events every year ranging from local YFC discos to the Annual County Dance. Being a YFC member provides you with a network of friends to share ideas and if you are under driving age, transport to help you get out and about. There are 11 Clubs based within Hampshire and you can see where your nearest one is by clicking about us the top of this page.
 

Competitions

We run a varied calendar of competitions throughout the year from 5 aside football to Stock Judging and Public Speaking. All members are invited to compete within different age ranges and we offer various classes to cater for the novice to the expert!

Training

Young Farmers is dedicated to improving its members opportunities as much as possible. Whether it be learning about farming and the countryside through meetings or nationally certified training courses. YFC is committed to offering its members opportunities to go on training courses, historically courses such as Chainsaw training, trailer trainining and welding have been offered, and these would come with national certification as well. Where possible we look for sponsorship/discounts to reduce the cost for our members.

Charity

Charity is an important aspect of YFC. Hampshire YFC is itself a Charity run by the members, for the members so we raise money both ourselves and of course other local charities donating thousands of pounds every year. We do of course always need to think of fresh new ideas to raise money so please let us know your ideas by emailing office@hampshireyfc.org
