We are thrilled that you want to be a part of the SC Farm Bureau Young Farmers & Ranchers (YF&R) program! The mission of this organization is to promote agricultural interests and to optimize the lives of those involved in agriculture. In short, the YF&R program is for members between 18-35 years old who believe in that mission.
- Join and/or make sure your information is accurate in the membership database (please don’t skip this step!).
- Contact your County Farm Bureau office to let them know that you want to get involved. The county secretary can give you the name and contact info for your county YF&R Chair.
- Contact your county YF&R Chair and let them know you are interested in being a part of the program in your county.
- If you are interested in helping organize a local YF&R meeting or event, but you need additional assistance, contact Heather Barberio.
Grassroots involvement is the key to success. If your county YF&R is already active, ask about how you can get plugged in. If your county's program isn't active yet, maybe you can help change that! It is critical to meet the people at your county Farm Bureau and connect with other members in your county.
