The Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster, in partnership with Dunbia, are encouraging secondary schools across Northern Ireland to get involved with a brand new Farming Clubs Programme. The newly launched programme will be centred around creating opportunities for young people to engage in extra-curricular activities focused on rural life, through their schools.

Commenting on the scheme, Janet Dobson, Community and Charity Champion Dunbia, said: “Dunbia are delighted to be associated with YFCU farming clubs. Our desire to create better food, naturally is the driving force behind all that we do. We are passionate about our farming heritage and welcome every opportunity to pass on our knowledge and experiences to the next generation.”

Registration for the programme is open now and the YFCU is encouraging any secondary school with an agricultural interest to get involved.
