You don't have to be a farmer to be a Leicestershire Young Farmer

In fact you don't even need to own a pair of wellies, all you need is a sense of adventure and a love of the countryside!

Led by young people, for young people, Leicestershire Federation of Young Farmers' clubs (LFYFC) provide anyone aged 10 to 26 with a fantastic social life, the opportunity to meet lifelong friends and learn new skills.

With over 500 members and 11 clubs, LFYFC is the largest rural youth organisations in the county. Joining your local Young Farmers' Club could be the gateway to a whole world of new opportunities.

Save the Date – Annual County Rally

Saturday 14th May 2022 at Manor Farm, Theddingworth, LE17 6QU by kind permission of Jones and Sons Manor Farm and Alan Jones.

There is so much more to Young Farmers than wellies and tractors!

The first Young Farmers Club dates back to the 1920's and was started to give young people in the countryside an opportunity to socialise with other young people in their areas, but today it also offers much more…


Ranging from stock judging to floral arts as well as public speaking and handicrafts, competitions are at the heart of YFC and enjoyed by virtually all members. Competitions are a brilliant motivator for members to have a go at something new and broaden their experiences.


There are many sports in which members can take part such as a friendly game of football, rugby, netball or hockey to ten pin bowling or tug of war and many more. Sports are a great way to meet other members and have fun!


Both Local and National Charities benefit from fundraising work undertaken by YFC. Events range from sponsored bike rides to bingo nights. These events are always full of FUN and raise thousands of pounds each year for worthwhile causes.


From Aberystwyth to Australia, you can go anywhere with Young Farmers! Trips vary from Club & County exchanges to team travel, working holidays and adventure holidays- each one lets members broaden their horizons on a brand new discovery.


Want to learn how to be a better leader, organise the biggest event in town or develop a new skill? LFYFC offers opportunities that not only prepare members for their role in running clubs, but also help develop essential life and career skills.

And of course, socialising

LFYFC gives young people a great opportunity make many new friends with plenty of YFC events every year ranging from local YFC discos to Dinner Dances. The highlight of the social calendar is the NFYFC Convention in April attended by over 5,000 members.
