National Young Farmers Coalition

The National Young Farmers Coalition (NYFC) represents, mobilizes, and engages young farmers to ensure their success. We envision a country where young people who are willing to work, get trained and take a little risk can support themselves and their families in farming.

NYFC was founded in 2010 by and for a new generation of farmers in the United States. We use "young farmers" to include all people who are kicking off a career in agriculture, typically in their first 10 years of growing. As a diverse and dynamic coalition, NYFC is composed not only of young farmers, but also of established farmers, farm service providers, good food advocates and conscious consumers. As a community, we support:

1) Independent family farms
2) Sustainable farming practices
3) Affordable land for farmers
4) Fair labor practices
5) Farmer-to-farmer training
6) Farmers of every gender, race and sexual orientation
7) Cooperation and friendship between all farmers
