Wigfield Farm

Welcome to Wigfield farm

Wigfield Farm has three main functions:

A working farm producing livestock,
A base for Barnsley College courses in Horticulture and Animal care,
An Open Farm and Visitors Centre accessible to the local and wider community.

The farm is situated approximately 2 miles south west of Barnsley next to Worsbrough Country Park.

Although farm staff are employed, the day to day work of the farm is undertaken by students following one of our many programmes of study thus providing a realistic working environment in which to develop their skills and knowledge.
Wigfield Farm is situated on the Dove Valley Trail section of the Trans-Pennine Trail, and provides a perfect visitor attraction at which to refresh yourself in our cafe and shop facility.
The farm has a wide range of animals including meerkats, cows, goats, horses, ponies, donkeys, miniature zebu, pigs, sheep, chickens, guinea pigs, rabbits and much more.
There is also an exotics room with a variety of reptiles which although it isn't open to the public, people do get to view them at public events, organised group visits or as part of a VIP experience.
We do school visits, VIP animal experiences and we do animal adoptions and enclosure sponsorship. We can provide gift vouchers and we also hold a variety of activities and events throughout the year.
