Loch Lomond Young Farmers


Loch Lomond Young Farmers is an organisation that works to advance the education and training of young people at large in rural issues, agriculture, homecrafts and other related subjects. Throughout the year, we work as a collective of active individuals within our communities to support local people through fundraising, offering help and interacting with different members of communities. This allows the development of our active citizens to build their abilities in self reliance, individual responsibility and enhancing their spiritual and mental capabilities.

Over the past few years, the club has been able to support local foodbanks, care homes, Brownie groups and other charities to name a few. We also use our platform to help raise the profile of other support groups and charities that may be able to support our members and wider community. The work we carry out leads to the development of independent, well rounded individuals who are able to provide beneficial contributions to their local communities.

Through raising money for our organisation, we are able to provide more activities for our members to build these essential life skills but also allows us to organise events to support our local communities. Year round, the club is able to hold social gatherings for our local communities, variety performances, skills courses and events which educate our members about agriculture. We primarily support a wide age range of individuals between the ages of 14-28 and focus on the motto that Young Farmers is "not just for those that wear wellies!"
