WAYFC was founded in 2009 to recruit, support, and promote young and beginning farmers in Washington state. We aim to facilitate socializing, networking, and skill sharing among young farmers and their mentors, as well as partnering with other compatible organizations in order to promote access to farm land, organize financial support for beginning growers, and leverage the voice of young farmers to affect change at the policy level. Washington state is one of the largest producers of specialty crops in the nation, with a diverse agricultural past and present, and the success of young farmers is essential to the continued vitality of Washington agriculture. With our coalition partners, we aim to develop a community of young growers in Washington; provide material, organizational and educational support; and facilitate action toward an abundant, just and food-secure future.
