Activities

Young Farmer Social Activities

All of the Young Farmer events and activities have a social aspect. Attending county meetings, picnics, community service projects and Young Farmers & Ranchers Leadership Conferences enables Young Farmers the opportunity to network with their peers and benefit from their time off the farm.

Community Service

Harvest For All Project

The NYFB Young Farmers & Ranchers have joined Young Farmers & Ranchers across the nation to partner with Feeding America (formerly America’s Second Harvest), the largest domestic hunger-relief organization in the U.S., to conduct the “Harvest for All” campaign. The YF&R Committee has adopted this campaign as a service project. County Young Farmers & Ranchers are conducting food drives and volunteering their time to assist at local food pantries and food banks.

Since 2007, New York Farm Bureau has been recognized as one of the leading states to participate in Harvest for All Project, a partnership between Farm Bureau and Feeding America. This national program is a collaboration between farmers and food banks to provide nutritious, local food to those who need it most.
