After a long and busy harvest for many of our members, the new Young Farmers year begins again this month, with plenty to keep us all busy, writes Essex Young Farmers’ Beth Speakman.

From September 9 to 11, Essex Young Farmers will be running the bar at the Barleylands country show, 2016. The weekend is always hugely popular, with the inclusion of attractions for all ages and is definitely not one to be missed. And if you are planning to come along to the show, be sure to stop by the bar for a drink and a chat to our members – they’re quite nice really!

National Young Farmers week is once again on the horizon, running from September 19 to 25 and all our clubs will be running special events to celebrate what it means to be a young farmer.

If you are looking to get involved in Young Farmers, this is the perfect time to sign up and enjoy everything that EYF has to offer.

If you would like more information please contact the EYF county office.
