Maldon Young Farmers is about having a great time with great friends! We have a brilliant range of members of all ages between 16 to 26 in a variety of professions, from farmers, students – to teachers and police officers. You don’t have to be a farmer to be a Maldon Young Farmer! As long as you get stuck in and like having a good time then you’ll fit right in.
Every week at Maldon provides something different – if you really wanted you could fill Monday to Friday with the activities both at club and county level! Although we meet every Tuesday for our weekly meeting, you may also be interested in going along to football on Monday nights from October to February, or when the season comes around there’s always Tug of War training every Thursday and Monday (which is alway great entertainment, and a fitness routine!).
Of course, this wouldn’t be Young Farmers without a beer or two… You can find Maldon members at every party – whether it’s a get together at club level or a party across the county a good time is always to be had on a Friday!
This past year Maldon YFC have excelled in all of the competitions, coming within the top 2-3 places at almost every one, so if you’re keen to get stuck in there’s always a team to join whether it be in a rugby team, snake and ladders, or our personal favourite prelims infamous car squeeze!
Aside from all of the fun, we also put on some charity events every year. These have become great ways for us to help raise the good profile of Young Farmers around Maldon as well as help to give to those who need our support. Annually we sell Christmas Trees in Great Totham, which has become quite the competition amongst the chairman all wanting to break the last years target! Onwards and upwards… though this does usually end with the tradition of netting the chairman… unfortunately though, that’s one tree that always goes unsold! Another event we hold is our annual charity Clayshoot on Easter Sunday, bringing not only the young farmers clubs together but shooters from all over East Anglia to have a go to see who can win the cash prize! It’s no surprise that here in Maldon one of our members won the national clay shoot competition.
