The BC Young Farmers is a young organization, energized and excited about moving into the future. We are a committee under the BC Agriculture Council that was started in 2008. Our members range in age from 19 to 40. We have an amazing membership of over 400 registered young farmers (and that number is growing) with small and large operations alike, from commodity categories including: beef cattle, berries, dairy, field vegetables, flowers, grain, greenhouse, hay, nursery, pork, poultry, eggs, geese, sheep, lamb, goats, horse, vineyard, tree fruits, bees, and organic & specialty producers.
BCYF assists young farmers in BC with information, education and support to ensure farming remains a success in our province! Through our events & workshops, our members have an opportunity to expand their knowledge and exchange ideas that can positively influence farming in BC.
