A growing sector
David Leon from the National Farm Attractions Network shares his advice for opening a farm attraction
Research from Visit England shows that farm attractions have been the fastest growing sector of visitor attractions over the past 10 years.
The latest report published in July 2015 and covering admission to attractions in 2014 states: “The biggest growth was seen in farm attractions and visitor/ heritage centres, continuing their success from 2013. Farms have seen the greatest increase in visits, particularly in the past ten years, since the Foot and Mouth outbreak of 2001.”
