About Us

 CTYFC understands the need for more workers entering the farming profession. Increasing the number of young farmers in Texas will be instrumental in increasing food security and awareness, curbing carbon emissions, and building a stronger relationship between local food and local economies. By banding together and supporting one another, we can help create a positive environment for young farmers to network, exchange ideas, and become better farmers.

Our Goals and Vision 

The Future of Agriculture

 Central Texas Young Farmers Coalition envisions a collaborative and diverse farming community through which young and beginning farmers make a living as a key component in agricultural production and ecological stewardship.
