NFAN estimate there are approximately 400 farm and rural attractions in the UK welcoming 20m visits a year. Of these 200 are NFAN Members who welcome 12m visits annually.
Contributing greatly to the UK economy, NFAN members employ over 6000 local people, buy local produce, educate local school children, as well as provide the regions with excellent leisure destinations. NFAN members are collectively investing around £20m annually in developing and improving their attractions.
NFAN began in 1996 through the vision of Jim Keetch, a Farm Park owner in Weldon, Northants. He was the Chairman of the Northants Farm Attractions Group and travelled the country, attending agricultural shows encouraging other farm parks to join.
Jim Keetch passed away in 1998, but his name lives on through the Jim Keetch Farm Attraction of the Year Award now in its 14th year and through his pioneering work in setting up NFAN, a voice for the farm park industry.
