About BC Young Farmers

BCYF Award
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.
