So, we’re nearing the end of National Young Farmers’ Week and here is the next member of our County Team for 2018/2019!


Rachel Perry

Involved in YFC since?

I joined Young Farmers’ when I was 15 years old, and have since enjoyed every moment of my YFC journey.

A little bit about you?

So… where to begin? I’ve always been involved in farming, my family has a dairy farming background and I live on our family farm.

I met my husband through YFC, proving that you never know who you might meet or where YFC can lead you. I have two daughters – Sue and Martha, who were both members of YFC, Sue was even a club secretary during her time in the Federation.

I have a passion for the countryside and enjoy experiencing the different seasons and weather! I keep myself busy playing LOTS of golf and tennis at my local clubs and regularly get involved in the tournaments.

What does YFC mean to you?

YFC has provided me with lifelong friends who I still meet up with regularly. Without YFC who knows if I would’ve met them? I look back on my time as a member with only good memories and I definitely remember enjoying the social life that YFC provides.

I love to see the members having fun and socialising, all the while they’re maturing ready for their time after YFC. However some say does YFC ever really end.


County Administrator (I’m also Tewkesbury YFC’s President this year).

What does your role include?

It’s pretty much what it says on the tin. Everything admin related – that’s my job. I particularly enjoy composing our weekly newsletter the ‘Once Weekly’ and going through and typing up all the minutes from our county meetings. I’m particularly busy at this time of year inputting all of the new membership forms.

My message to all members or potential members is to have a go – you never know you might like it!
