A north-Norfolk tourist attraction has been recognised in a national award scheme.
Junior Farm at Wroxham Barns was runner up in the category for businesses with 75,000 or more visitors at the National Farm Attractions Network Awards.
The awards, which looked at safety, efficiency, employees' attitudes and the overall experience, took place in Tamworth, Staffordshire.
Farm Manager Eileen Claverley, who collected the award, said: 'Junior farm only covers two acres and to have achieved runner up in a competition featuring large farm parks is a great tribute to all my staff who work so hard looking after our visitors and, of course, the animals.'
Wroxham Barns was just beaten in its category by Mead Open Farm, in Billington, Leighton Buzzard, which took first place, and Odds Farm, in Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, which came second.
Michael Buckby, agricultural business manager for Lloyds TSB Northampton, was one of the judges and said it was a difficult decision.
