About Us

Every year Oxfordshire Young Farmers' host a County Show to celebrate the year and what Young Farmers' Clubs are all about - ‘Fun, learning and achievement’. There will be main ring attractions, rural craft demonstrations, trade and food stands, a farm animal corner and a fun dog show for all the family to enjoy.

The Show raises money to keep Oxfordshire YFC running. Nationally we are one of the largest rural youth organisations in the UK dedicated to young people who have a love for agriculture and rural life. Led by young people, for young people, Young Farmers' Clubs provide 25,000 members aged 10 to 26 with a unique opportunity to develop skills, work with their local communities, travel abroad, take part in a varied competitions programme and enjoy a dynamic social life.

The Young Farmers themselves will be competing in over 100 various exhibition and practical competitions. Over the year we have been learning new skills ready to compete between the Oxfordshire Clubs in the competitions that are held on the day. These include farming skills such as mini digger handling, ATV efficiency and safety to domestic classes such as cookery and flower arranging, as well as fun classes such as blind fold cake decorating and obstacle races. These can all be viewed on the day and can be both inspiring and entertaining!

On the day there will also be many other attractions for the public to watch such as the tug of war finals, a display of various tractors and farm machinery throughout the ages, a motorcycle display and more. There will also be a display of Floats in the main ring pulled by tractors; this year’s theme is ‘around the world’. Not to mention a selection of craft, trade and food stands, with sellers of local produce and handmade goods.
