Agri clubs promote the fun side of agriculture while teaching students valuable skills and developing lifelong friendships.

NZ Young Farmers (NZYF) is a non-profit organisation with a focus on connecting communities and helping to grow future leaders.

It operates a network of almost 80 NZYF clubs across the country, each with their own identity and community spirit. They are backed by a national organisation, which is governed by an eight-member board.

The clubs are progressive and provide a venue for young people to develop their leadership and personal skills. They’re a place where members can network with like-minded individuals and make friends for life. The organisation runs the iconic FMG Young Farmer of the Year contest, along with stock judging, clay target shooting, fencing and debating competitions.
