About Wigfield Farm

Wigfield Farm is set in Worsbrough, Barnsley and has three main functions:

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

A large part of the practical tasks during the week are actually undertaken by students following one of our many programmes of study giving them a real working environment to develop their skills and knowledge.

The farm is situated approximately 2 miles south-west of Barnsley next to Worsbrough Country Park. It is near to the Dove Valley Trail section of the Trans-Pennine Trail, and provides a perfect visitor attraction for adults and children.

We have a wide range of animals including meerkats, horses, cows, goats, shetland pony, miniature zebu, donkeys, pigs, sheep, chickens, guinea pigs, rabbits and much more.

Our students take a walk on the wild side in our exotics room where they care for and study a variety of reptiles. Although this area isn’t open to the public, you can view our reptiles, snakes and lizards at public events or as part of a VIP animal experience.

The farm operates a café serving light lunches, snacks and refreshments as well as a varied souvenir shop.

Part-Time Courses

We hold a number of short courses at Wigfield Farm throughout the year. For information on all our courses please visit Barnsley College’s Animal Care  and Horticulture page.
