Cannon Hall Farm is the host farm for Channel Five’s Springtime on The Farm where we celebrate all that is good about British farming. As multiple award winners, we are always striving to add to our offering and education is at the core of what we aim to deliver.

Make the curriculum come alive with a visit around our family farm. Our family have been farming in Barnsley for centuries and have a wealth of experience in delivering educational visits for school groups of any size.

We are always trying to improve the experience of our school group visitors – and will now be able to offer our school groups handling sessions in our brand new reptile house. 

For just £5.95 per child, we welcome groups of over 20 children to come and experience life on a working farm. (One free adult for every five paying children)

You are met by a tour guide who will help show you and your class the key things to see around our farm.  This will include a session of small animal petting and time for question and answers. Your class can have a handling session with the curious critters in our reptile house – we have everything from leaf cutter ants to hissing cockroaches, chameleons to iguanas and many more exotic creatures that are bound to fascinate the children. Our knowledgeable handlers can help fit the animal visit in with topics you are working on. Building teamwork? You’ll see no-one better than our leaf cutter ants at working as a unit. Discussing colours? Let our chameleon show you how he uses colour to survive in the wild.
