來自布德（Bude）的22歲的養羊人湯姆-南斯基維爾（Tom Nancekivell）說，青年農場主是一個 "出路"，有時可能是一個孤獨的工作。
Rosie Bennett, chair of the Devon Federation of Young Farmers Clubs, said she "can understand why people want to get into it".
Every day he carries out various jobs on his grandad's farm in Tiverton. He said he was certain he wanted to be a farmer when he is older.
"I think it's just getting to do what you want to do when you're older every day, getting to deal with the animals and stuff like that," he said.
Sheep farmer Tom Nancekivell, 22, from Bude, said Young Farmers is a "way out" of what can sometimes be a lonely job.
He said: "With Young Farmers, we're doing something all the time. Every evening you look forward to going out and doing something with your friends, farming-related."
"We live in a wonderful part of the world, so I can really understand why people want to get into it.
"There are so many opportunities that farming provides, it's not just producing crops or milk or eggs and things like that, there are lots of diversifications it provides".
