Northants Young Farmers’ Training Budget

Our budget towards training costs is still available for Northants YFC members aged 10 – 30, with the aim of encouraging those at the beginning of their careers or still in education to apply for a grant to be used to access training opportunities to improve their skills base.

Each application will be considered on its merits by the Finance Committee, whose decision will be final. The aim is to make a decision within one month of receipt of the application.

Successful applicants will be required to write a short report detailing their training and the benefit they’ve gained from it. This will be used to promote the training budget to other applicants.

Contact the YFC Office by email ( or phone (01604 670562) for more information, or download the application form and guidelines here.
