We are over the moon to announce our very own Chris Wilson was awarded ‘NI Tourism Entrepreneur of the Year’ award last week.
The glitzy awards night was held at the Europa Hotel with many attending from across the whole industry.
It was a fancy black-tie event so Chris had to swap his usual farm attire for a tux and bow tie!
He won the award for dramatically increasing visitor numbers to the farm through clever marketing and innovative events. This award also recognised that he had brought more money into the NI economy through tourism and in turn has created 4 full time jobs at the farm in the past few years.
‘I am over the moon to win this award, it was a fantastic night! However I couldn’t have won this without such a great team around me! We have a lot of plans for the farm to continue to develop and grow and I am very excited about the future. The tourism industry is crucial to the Northern Ireland economy and we hope over the next 10 years this continues to grow significantly.’ Chris Wilson Streamvale Open Farm
