European Rally

The European Rally, hosted by Rural Youth Europe, takes place each year. It has a long history with the first rally taking place in the Netherlands in 1960. Each year YFCU sends a team to take part in the rally.

Team members have the opportunity to share best practice, attend workshops and learn more about the other young farmer clubs that are attending from throughout Europe. They then bring this knowledge back and share it with our members.

The 2018 European Rally will take place in Scotland.
