The Kent Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs (KYFC) was established in 1945 to further the education and farming skills of young
people in agriculture. Since then it has now grown to a thriving organisation connecting young people with an interest in the countryside, animals and outdoor pursuits - you don't have to be a farmer

almost 500 members with a unique opportunity to develop skills, work with their local community, raise money for charity, take part in a varied competitions programme and enjoy an active and dynamic
Clubs usually meet once a week and are organised and run by the YFC members themselves. With Kent being one of the only counties to
have school clubs, the age range of members will differ depending on the type of club; generally members are aged between 10 to 16 in the school clubs and between 16 to 26 in the open
Kent YFC is part of the National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs (NFYFC), one of the
largest rural youth organisations in the UK. NFYFC heads a nationwide body of 662 Young Farmers’ Clubs throughout England and Wales dedicated to supporting young people with an interest in
agriculture and the countryside.
