The Singapore Young Farmer Initiative has grown from strength to strength since our inaugural launch at Singapore’s First Farm Festival in 2015. If you are deeply interested in getting involved with the farming community AND eager to interact with the Next Generation of Singapore Farmers, WE WANT YOU to join us in 2 EXCITING activities in the month of October & November!

Organized by the Kranji Countryside Association, The Singapore Farm Festival is a yearly affair held at the rustic kranji countryside.
