THE NFU has kicked off recruitment for its successful Student & Young Farmer Ambassador Programme for its second year and is searching for young people from across England and Wales to make a mark on British farming in 2020.
The programme made a huge impact in its first year, with ambassadors representing Britain’s farmers at more than 14 events, in dozens of media
appearances, and across the length and breadth of the country.
Up to 12 young people who are passionate about farming and rural life will be given a chance to represent the NFU at events such as the Lord Mayor’s Show and NFU Conference, and guest edit the NFU’s #StudentFarmer magazine.
Successful applicants will gain a unique insight into some essential aspects of the agricultural industry, with previous trips including a tour of the Houses of Parliament, a visit to the European Parliament in Brussels and an overview of the British cut flower supply chain.
