Randalstown Young Farmers’ Club kicked off 2019 with their annual trip to the Pantomime in the Grand Opera House to see ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’.

Seven members swapped the green fields of Randalstown for the snowy French mountains as they enjoyed a week on the YFCU ski trip to Val Thorens. Thankfully all members made it back in one piece.

Thanks must go to the outgoing committee for their efforts in making the 2018/2019 club year a success and good luck to the incoming members in their roles.

Club meetings continued with members welcoming Dungiven YFC for an evening of games in the return leg of the club exchange.

Draynes Farm, Lisburn provided a farm and factory tour informing 63 members of the processes involved in the production and bottling of their own milk, cream and ice cream for local shops and restaurants.
