Cannon Hall Farm in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, is a family-run farm and award-winning visitor attraction that has a commitment to high quality farm stock and preserving the continuation of some of the world’s most rare breeds.

We currently have two programmes that aim to increase the numbers of two highly at risk animals – Shire horses (which could become extinct within ten years if steps are not taken now) and the Swiss Valais sheep breed, made famous by Shaun the Sheep.

Our new adoption programme means you’ll be able to help keep our animals safe and well in this unprecendent time. Your sponsorship will contribute to the welfare of all our amazing animals on site.

Animal adoption is the unique gift that keeps on giving, a great birthday present for adults and children alike. 

Adopting an animal can make a real difference. It ensures we can keep going. 

Whoever you choose, remember: by adopting one animal at Cannon Hall Farm, you’re helping them all.

We introduced category adoptions rather than individual animals to make sure this could happen.

Please make sure to note on checkout which name you want the certificate to be in.

Your free tickets will be posted out with your adoption certificate – but you do need to book in in advance before your visit.
