You don't have anything in your wishlist at the moment.
At Playscheme, we are very keen on building awareness of how best to monetise your farm. After joining forces with the National Farmers Attraction Network, we hope to do more work in the future within the farming and rural attraction industry. After our fantastic Cloud Hide-Away Tower was installed at Tanylan Farm Holidays in Carmarthenshire and the award-winning Balloon Tree Farmshop and Cafe in York, we'd love to help other farms alike make the best out of their businesses. So where do you start? There are so many ways that you can turn your farm into an attraction to drive more visitors to your site and ultimately yield more profit overall. Here are some ideas to get you started:
People love camping and they're always looking for great outdoor areas where they can spend a few nights relaxing in the open air. Turning some of your land into a campsite is really quite simple. You'll need to think about installing general amenities such as somewhere to shower and a toilet for campers. It can be as basic as you want, so whether you want to install electricity for caravans, or whether you just want to accommodate tents, it's up to you. If your farm is located near to a popular tourist attraction, then this is even better, as you have a great promotional tool at your fingertips! If you have a farm shop on your land that provides campers with the essentials that they need, then this can also be mutually beneficial to you and your visitors.
When we met with them they wanted us to create a farm related piece of equipment to act as a focal point within the land and to create an area for children under the age of 6 to play. The piece that we have created is a silo tower and is part of a scheme that will eventually grow and develop into a larger piece over time. They loved this concept and are looking forward to seeing it grow over the years and gives visitors a reason to come back.
The tower is very natural and fits in with the beautiful area they have available and can be accessed via the 3 openings at the bottom, or the scramble net on the outside which leads to the first level of the tower. The silo can can be asended by the use of the ladder located in the centre. There is also a 1 metre high slide located on the first level of the tower, which provides a fun exit route for children wanting to descend into the playing area.
