another new club for Young Farmers

Good news for Young Farmers at the start of another year of membership growth.

Daniel Joho, an engineer in the Graduate Programme at Fonterra, along with a group of around 10 friends, are the driving forces behind a new South Taranaki club. Daniel’s motivation behind starting  the Alton Club is to make it a little easier to get meetings.

“Basically we were talking about Young Farmers at the Alton Tavern one night and the boys were all keen to join so we thought why not start one up right here instead of heading to another Club,” says Daniel in a Young Farmers press release today. The closest club was previously about a half hour/hour drive away for most of them.

The meeting will be held at the Alton Tavern on February 15.  You have to be aged between 15 and 31 and don’t need a farming background. No obligation to join on the night.

But as a 23 year veteran of all things Young Farmers (please don’t do the maths! they kicked me out a few years ago 🙂 ) I tell you there will be no regrets!



  1. One of my regrets was I didn’t join when I had the opportunity. If I had my time again joining YFC would be on my to-do list.
