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 are looking forward to introducing our brand new attraction, the small mammal house in 2022.

For just £6.95 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)

Please note that from January 2025, the price will increase to £7.95 per child.

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 time for question and answers.

Your class can visit 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.
