The YIELD Network

YIELD stands for Young, Innovative, Enterprising, Learning and Developing.  It’s a thriving new network for younger members’ of the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association.U851 YIELD Network-LOGO-ARTWORK-CMYK
YIELD was formed to meet the demand for a rural business network in Norfolk. It combines professional development, training and the opportunity to socialise for farming professionals and business owners in an informal way.

The RNAA gives YIELD administrative support and promotes the activities of the group through access to training, funding and contacts. The network is steered by members of the YIELD organising committee. The group is independent and does not represent any commercial interests.


We are a diverse dynamic group and our current 50 members are aged 20 to 45. We’re farmers, managers and professionals working in rural industry including lawyers and bankers. Technology entrepreneurs, food producers, researchers and engineers are also active and committed members. We all share a passion for Norfolk; its countryside, farming, food and business. Norfolk has a history of producing agricultural pioneers – Townsend and Coke – and is home to world-class science and agribusiness today.  YIELD aims to add to this tradition.
