BC Young Farmers (BCYF) is a working committee within BCAC that believes in moving agriculture into the future. BCYF has a strong following of young farmers with small and large operations alike. BCYF assists young farmers in B.C. aged 19-40 with information, education and support to ensure farming remains a success in our province. Through their events and workshops, their networks have an opportunity to expand their knowledge and exchange ideas that can positively influence farming in B.C.
