Started in 1996, NFAN delivers professional support and assistance across a number of areas.
In 2012, 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.
NFAN now helps Members interpret the guidelines with workshops and one-on-one Member discussions. NFAN has also produced a helpful video demonstrating best practice.

NFAN Members have a responsibility to indicate a commitment to industry best practice and follow the Industry Code of Practice. It is in the interest of all farm parks that NFAN Members agree to promote best practice as well as commit to quality standards and continuous improvement.
NFAN originally started as a networking organisation and continues to run regular events for their Members.
Events range from the NFAN Annual Conference and two-day road shows to open days and knowledge sharing Farm Hub Workshops.
To view forthcoming events, please visit the NFAN Events Calendar.
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.
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.
For future developments, please see the Chairman’s Update.
