The National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs (NFYFC) is a rural youth organisation in the United Kingdom. The Federation covers various Young Farmers’ Clubs (YFCs) throughout England and Wales, helping support young people in agriculture and the countryside. It does not include YFCs from Scotland or Ireland.
Memberships comprise over 23,000 young people aged between 10 and 26 years. YFCs are run by members for members, unlike most other youth organisations.
The YFCs are grouped into 51 federations based mainly on county boundaries. These are grouped further into six regional areas in England and Wales and together form the NFYFC.
The Young Farmers’ Clubs organisation involves people who live, work, or have an interest in the countryside who join together to form an “open” Young Farmers’ Club, where they can pursue their interests through a self-directed programme of activities encompassing agriculture, sport, community volunteering, the environment and a full social programme.
England and Wales are also home to a limited number of school-based farm units, which often operate “School” Young Farmers’ Clubs.
