The Lancashire Federation of Young Farmers (known as LFYFC) is led by young people, for young people.  Young Farmers Clubs are voluntary organisations providing anyone aged 10 to 26 with opportunities to meet lifelong friends, learn new skills, and make a difference to their local community.

Originally formed to provide a type of agricultural apprenticeship, individual Young Farmers Clubs were formed locally with the focus on the keeping of growing and living things including calves, pigs, poultry, bees and gardens. Clubs in Lancashire date back to the 1920’s, with the County Federation being formed in 1938, just before the outbreak of World War II.

In Lancashire there are 19 local Young Farmers clubs providing opportunities for over 700 young people. Each club has an elected Management Committee of young people who are supported by past members. Young Farmers is probably one of the only youth organisations to allow young people to develop under their own management through this democratic structure.

The County structure provides a large range of services to the Clubs including competitions, events, education, training, promotion and development. All these things instil skills like leadership, team building and life skills needed for a successful future. Above all giving the members the confidence to air their views, make a change and be a strong individual.
