Welcome to Cambridgeshire Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs.
We are part of the National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs (NFYFC), one of the largest rural youth organisations in the UK with over 25,000 members and 630 Clubs.
The National Federation heads up Young Farmers, providing the framework for a whole host of exciting events, competitions and new experiences but it’s the members who really make the decisions.
YFC is led by young people, for young people and provides anyone aged 10 to 26 with a fantastic chance to meet lifelong friends, learn new skills, make a real difference to the local community and even travel the world!
There are eight Clubs within the Cambridgshire area and it may surprise you to learn who we are and what we do; we don't wear wellies all the time and a large number of our members have no links to agriculture at all, just an interest in the countryside and a desire to meet like minded young people. Everyone is welcome to join us to enjoy activities ranging from from ten-pin bowling to team building activities and cookery to livestock judging!
Please take a look at our website and see what opportunities there are to get involved and get in touch if you like what you see, we'd love to meet you!
County Chairman: Hannah Irons
Club: Newborough YFC
Occupation: Farm Grain Buyer & Seed Sales
How long in YFC: I think it must be around 6 years now!
Why did you take on a County Officer Role? I was County Secretary/Treasurer last year and when the opportunity came up to take on County Chairman, I couldn’t wait to get started. I hoped to be able to make a difference to the County and the members and am grateful to everyone who has supported me along the way.
What do you enjoy most about the Role? Getting to represent the 200 members within Cambridgeshire Young Farmers. It is great to see the individual members, Clubs and the County developing and growing all the time. I also love seeing members achieve all the great things that they do! It is great to feel like you are part of a team, we do a great job of pulling together like one big family.
What skills have you learnt that will help you in the future? The list is endless! I am more confident in new environments, meeting new people, speaking in public, organisational skills, I just need to work on finding more hours in the day!
