WHO?

Farmers, ranchers, agribusiness professionals, and ag enthusiasts between the ages of 18-35.

WHY?

Annually YF&Rs from across the state join together for this one-of-a kind event! Where else in S.C. will you find all of the young farmers (under age 36) and ag enthusiasts together in one place?! This event provides educational sessions and networking opportunities to help build your potential for success in the agricultural industry and to equip you to advocate for the future of agriculture. As the challenges facing the agricultural industry grow, and farmers, along with the rest of the industry, continue to work to provide food, fiber and fuel for our communities, state, nation and world, the SCFB Young Farmers & Ranchers Committee offers this conference to bring together young farmers and ag enthusiasts (the future of agriculture) from across the state of South Carolina to help you connect, learn and grow.
