Spring is the favourite time of year at Cannon Hall Farm, where we see the triumph and tragedy of lambing season with daily activity in our roundhouse.

Our lambs are due to arrive just in time for the Spring school holidays – so make sure you pay us a visit for the very best chance to see a live birth for the perfect family day out in Yorkshire. 

We want to share the action with your family – as well as provide education and entertainment for our younger visitors.

If you looking for things to do with kids in Yorkshire, join us and help us welcome our new lambs (and hopefully see a brand new life brought into the world). 

Our farmers – who have been made famous thanks to their appearances on Channel 5 TV show Springtime on the Farm and The Yorkshire Vet – will be in the roundhouse every day answering your questions.

Your farm admission ticket includes entry plus:

  • Introductions to the new arrivals
  • Daily talks from our farmers
  • Sheep and ferret racing and meerkat feeding sessions.
  • Access to our amazing play areas (including the soft play).
  • Bottle-feeding demonstrations (subject to animal need)
  • Tractor rides

We will be lambing between March 23 and April 14, 2024.

Please note that bulk admission passes, adoption passes and general farm admission passes are all accepted for this event.

Want to bottle feed a lamb?
Although you can watch bottle feeding demos during our lambing event (at times when our vulnerable lambs need it) our farm admission visitors do not get the opportunity to join in the activity.
You can purchase a VIP Animal Experience where visitors in small groups can join our farm team behind the scenes in the roundhouse and help care for the vulnerables.
There is an additional charge for this experience and it has to be booked in advance online – you can read about it here.
