Over 40 farm parks, rural attractions and industry suppliers from around the UK have made it through to the finals of the National Farm Attractions Network Annual Awards.

Says Richard Powell, NFAN Chairman, “We are delighted to announce the finalists in the annual awards. There have been 68 entries for the 2020 Awards which is amazing, and the standard has been exceptionally high, which is a tremendous reflection of the quality and range of farm based attractions around the UK.”

“The awards celebrate the best farm attractions, the fantastic range of cafés and restaurants, the leading digital marketers, inspiring educators and the customer service champions. We also recognise the key role played by the companies who supply our members, with the Best Trade Supplier of the year award.”

The winners will be announced on Wednesday 29th January 2020 at the Annual Awards Dinner in Doncaster as part of a three-day Conference and Trade Exhibition. The annual gathering of farm attraction owners and industry suppliers is the highlight event of the year and includes visits to Yorkshire Wildlife Park and Pink Pig Farm, a trade exhibition with over 80 companies exhibiting, and conference sessions with presentations from industry experts.
