MORE ABOUT NYFC:
------------------------------------------------------------
"National Young Farmers Coalition is focused on supporting America's next generation of sustainable farmers and ranchers. We use "young farmers" to include all people who are kicking off a career in agriculture, typically in their first 10 years of growing. That includes anyone from a first-year farm apprentice to someone pursuing a mid-life career change to agriculture.  America can use as many new farmers as we can get!
       We use the term "young" to grab the attention of our policy makers. When young people band together to fight for policies that support them, Washington responds.  Many of the most successful social movements in history were in part driven by young people, and the food movement is no exception.   Some of our affiliate groups prefer "beginning" over "young," but we see the two as nearly synonymous; whether you're actually young or young at heart, NYFC is right for you!"
