Colchester Tug of War - FinalThe Essex Young Farmers are a youth organisation made up of 16-26 year olds and, despite the name, you don’t have to be a farmer to join; absolutely anyone can be a member! Essex Young Farmers is run by its members for its members so everyone has the chance to have a say in what goes on.

With 12 clubs across the county there really is something for everyone, be it organising events, playing sports, fundraising for charities or simply enjoying the social side of it all!

Essex Young Farmers also have competitions every month for clubs to take part in, including bowling, rugby, mixed hockey, football, netball, public speaking, tug of war and many more.

As if this wasn’t enough for us to be getting on with, Essex Young Farmers also organises one of the county’s biggest annual Country Shows. This is attended by almost 14,000 people and is organised and run entirely by us, the members. If you are looking for a challenge then this might just be for you!
