Today marks the start of National Young Farmers week, the biggest promotional week in the YFC year as we celebrate all that is great about being involved in the largest rural youth organisation in the UK.

Starting from 25-29 October 2021, young farmers across the country will be sharing all the things they get up to during their club nights, whilst also promoting their clubs and backing British farming.

Cornwall YFC challenged all 20 clubs across the county to get involved in National Young Farmers Week by creating ‘bale models’ out of hay bales to help promote young farmers and support British farming.

The club claimed a fantastic, although very messy, club night was had by all members creating their farmyard, from the youngest at 11 years old right up to the age of 26 getting involved painting and crafting the club's bales.

Farming has never been more important than it has now, with farmers working tirelessly year round to provide the British public with fruit, veg, meat, dairy, pulses and grains that we all see on our shelves in the local supermarkets.
