Hampshire YFC was originally formed in the 1930’s to create a social club for young people living in the countryside. Today, our function is the same – to provide fun for the younger rural community! After all, we are the future of the British countryside!
So, how do we do this?
Charity is an important aspect of YFC. Hampshire YFC is a Charity run for the members by the members. We raise money both for ourselves and for other local charities.
See our total funds raised for charity in recent years below.
We run a varied calendar of competitions throughout the year including Farm Skills, Stock Judging, Sports and Public Speaking.
All members are invited to compete within different age ranges and we offer various classes to cater for the novice to the expert!
There is also the opportunity to compete representing your club at county, area and national level.
Young Farmers Clubs (YFC) gives you a great opportunity to socialise and make many new friends. There are hundreds of YFC events every year ranging from local YFC Quiz Evenings to the Annual County Dance. Being a YFC member provides you with a network of friends to share like minded ideas. There are clubs based across Hampshire.

Young Farmers is dedicated to improving its member's opportunities as much as possible. Whether it be learning about farming and the countryside through meetings or nationally certified training courses. YFC is committed to offering its members opportunities to go on training courses, historically courses such as Chainsaw training, trailer trainining and welding have been offered, and these would come with national certification as well. Where possible we look for sponsorship/discounts to reduce the cost for our members.
