Fram Farmers work closely with a number of Young Farmer clubs, including Essex and Suffolk Young Farmers.
The National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs (NFYFC) is one of the largest rural youth organisations in the UK.
It heads a body of around 662 Young Farmers’ Clubs (YFCs) throughout England and Wales dedicated to supporting young people in agriculture and the countryside.
NFYFC provides a framework within which its clubs can offer their members a wealth of new experiences and opportunities for personal development and achievement, a much-needed social and educational network, and a safe environment for activities.
Led by young people, for young people, Young Farmers' Clubs provide their 23,000 members aged between 10 and 26 a unique opportunity to develop skills, work with their local community, travel abroad, take part in a varied competitions programme and enjoy a dynamic social life.
HOPS Labour Solutions Ltd
In addition to its youthwork activities, the NFYFC also runs a company called HOPS Labour Solutions which is a key source of funding for NFYFC. HOPS is a Home Office-appointed operator of the Seasonal Agricultural Workers Scheme (SAWS) and runs its own programme alongside this called the Seasonal Workers Programme (SWP).
Becoming a member of your local Young Farmers' Club in England or Wales is the first step to a great social life.
Competitions, a host of fun and games, foreign travel, volunteering, new skills and qualifications are just some of the reasons to become a member of a Young Farmers' Club.
