Tapnell Farm Park fought off tough competition from around the UK to win the award for “Small Farm Attraction of the Year” at the National Farm Attractions Network (NFAN) annual conference and awards ceremony last week.
The NFAN annual awards, which are often described as the “Farm Attraction Oscars”, took place at the International Centre in Telford on 1st February, at a glittering dinner hosted by BBC Radio Shropshire presenter Carl Jones. They celebrate the best in UK farm and rural attractions, where winners are recognised for championing customer service, innovation, and outstanding education. Over 20 million visits a year are made to farm parks across the UK, enabling families and school groups to discover more about farming and food, whilst having fun.
Our Farm Park was nominated alongside Hall Hill Farm in County Durham, Cantref Adventure Farm in Brecon, and The Pink Pig in Scunthorpe, but won the judging panel over to become the 2017 best UK farm attraction (for under 75,000 visitors).
