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, llamas, 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 [unfortunately this is not open to the public].
The farm operates a café serving light lunches, snacks and refreshments as well as a varied souvenir shop.
