Rural Hub

Since the announcement of Devon YFC purchasing it’s own premises (The Rural Hub), young farmers have been doing a tremendous job in fundraising for it’s purchase and renovation. A fantastic £343,013.77 has been raised so far, however with the target of £400,000 there is still a little way to go and young farmers need to keep the fundraising going in order to complete the renovations required.

The new Rural Hub will bring so many opportunities to young people and will secure the future of young farmers in Devon for many years to come so everyone’s continue support is greatly appreciated by all.

If you wish to donate or find out more, please contact us.
