NC Farm Bureau Young Farmers & Ranchers (YF&R) Program is designed for young adults (18-35) that are interested or involved in agriculture.
YF&R provides opportunities to develop leadership growth, public speaking skills, advocacy strategies, and exposure to current issues in agriculture from state and national leaders. YF&R members support agriculture and Farm Bureau by serving on special Farm Bureau committees, county Farm Bureau Boards of Directors, and testifying as experts addressing concerns of the farmers and ranchers at public hearings. NC Farm Bureau is proud to have one of the largest and most active YF&R programs in the country.
If having an impact on the future is of interest to you, NC Farm Bureau will reserve a special place for you in the YF&R program!
Young Farmer & Rancher Leadership Conference
Each year, YF&R members from across North Carolina convene at the YF&R Leadership Conference. These future agriculture leaders gather to share and discuss concerns and challenges, listen to agricultural leaders and guest speakers and attend well-executed workshops. This exciting conference takes place every year at no cost to YF&Rs because NC Farm Bureau understands the importance of having young adults engaged in agriculture. It’s our way of saying, “be a part of something BIG!”
