Farming Networks

As part of its charitable work, the Yorkshire Agricultural Society works to support farmers and the wider agricultural community.

YAS Farming Networks

To allow you to access information about all of our networks we are consolidating our individual mailing lists into a single, regular e-newsletter.


Our Farming Networks provide support, advice and opportunity for those within the agricultural industry to develop both personally and professionally.  Through these networks we aim to help ensure that the agricultural community is stronger, fitter and better equipped for tomorrow.


The Future Farmers of Yorkshire is a group for forward-thinking farmers, vets and industry supporters that offers a variety of events and activities that promote professional development and provide networking opportunities.  These events are free or heavily subsidised in order to ensure that they are accessible to everyone.

The Farmer Scientist Network is an advisory group that brings together senior and successful scientists and farmers to explore the ways in which new science and technology can solve problems and underpin innovation in agriculture.

The Yorkshire Rural Support Network is a partnership of Yorkshire statutory and voluntary agencies that together promote and provide sources of help – whether practical, financial, medical or emotional.  The aim of the network is to promote the wellbeing of those who live in rural communities, through our network members.

The Women in Farming Network provides networking opportunities and support for ladies who live and work on farms and in agricultural related industries. The network is free to join and meets several times a year, in addition to the annual conference in October.

The Yorkshire Food, Farming & Rural Network is made up of local groups representing different areas of Yorkshire, to identify and feedback local issues and concerns straight to the heart of Government, in order to make policies more rural-friendly.

Yorkshire has an active and diverse spread of Farmer Discussion Groups that we support in a number of ways; from providing a speaker for meetings, to funding training opportunities and promoting events.
