National Farm Attractions Network

National Farm Attractions Network

Uniting the Farm Attraction Industry, The National Farm Attraction Network (NFAN) has over 250 Members and is the only independent co-operative for farm and rural attractions.

Started in 1996, The NFAN delivers professional support and assistance across a number of areas.

Industry Code of Practice

In 2012, The NFAN assisted the HSE in creating the Industry Code of Practice, which provides guidelines on how visitors to farm and rural attractions should interact with animals.

The NFAN now help Members interpret the guidelines with workshops and one-on-one Member discussions. NFAN has also produced a helpful video demonstrating best practice.

The NFAN also provide tools for Members to increase their knowledge in specific areas. On this website, we post regular useful information resources (available for Members) and throughout the year hold workshops with industry experts.

Raising Standards

The NFAN Awards are held annually and provide an opportunity for the farm attraction industry to showcase their ‘best in class’ attractions.

In addition to the main Farm Attraction of the Year Award, there are a number of different award categories. Click here to view NFAN Award Winners.

The NFAN office provides Members with support and advice through a manned telephone service.

Additional initiatives NFAN have developed are a specialist insurance product through Marsh & Co, a free 15 minute planning consultation with Davies & Co and a benchmarking service, enabling attractions to confidentially share their visitor numbers.
