History

Building on hundreds of Junior Young Farmers clubs formed at state schools in the 1920s and 1930s, the Senior Sections of Young Farmers Clubs (for young people between the ages of 14 and 25 years), commenced unofficially in 1946 and obtained official recognition in 1947.

There were four foundation clubs (in Bangerang, Dimboola, Kiewa Valley and Geelong) which provided for young farmers when they left schools through three phases of activity – Agricultural, Social and Cultural (three focal points of their immediate past logo of the VYF).

Established with the support of the Royal Agricultural Society Victoria (RASV), the young farmers' organisation was intended to bring together young rural-based men and women and provide them with access to a range of activities.

While VYF has been quiet in recent years Government funding has enabled us to spring back into action!
