With exactly one week to go until the start of #NationalYoungFarmersWeek, the National Vice chairman, Ed Ford (from Essex YFC) explains why he has signed up again:
“So today I signed up to Essex Young Farmers for my 10th year. For 8 years I paid £25 per year and for the last 2 it has been £30. That’s a total of £260 – you can’t join a gym for a year for that or the scouts for any more than a couple of years. Over the last 10 years, it has cost me just 7p per day to be a member.
“For this I have made some amazing friends for life, not just in Essex but across the UK as well as a few from around the world. I have travelled all over the Europe with Young Farmers, competed in many competitions and been given opportunities that I could never of imagined possible, especially in the agricultural sector. NFYFC is an amazing organisation, which gives young people the opportunity to achieve some truly awesome things.
