Toolbox for Starting an NYFC Chapter in your Region
Many of the challenges we face as young farmers can be tackled at home through strong networks. That’s why farmers across the country are forming NYFC chapters that support collaboration and advocacy. From organizing cooperative buying clubs to equipment shares to barn parties, NYFC chapters are a platform for forging collective success and connectedness.
NYFC has 26 chapters in 25 states with dozens more in development. We envision a community of young farmers in every region, but to make that happen, we need you!
