About BC Young Farmers

BC Young Farmers (BCYF) is a committee of BC Agriculture Council (BCAC). Our purpose is to represent the voice of the next generation of farmers and ranchers in B.C. We do this in collaboration with BCAC by participating on the BCAC Board, attending key industry events and hosting events of our own. We have a keen interest in sharing our perspective with government so that their future public policies support the long-term sustainability of agriculture. BCYF plays an important role in organizing peer-to-peer networking and leadership-development opportunities. BCAC’s Board of Directors and staff support the BCYF Committee Members with transitioning into a boardroom and farm management.
