farm1 webWhirlow Hall Farm is a 140 acre working farm sandwiched between Sheffield and the Peak District.  It is run by a small team of staff, supported by a number of experienced and enthusiastic volunteers. To ensure it can deliver the variety needed for our charitable and educational programmes it has a wide variety of livestock and growing spaces, including:

  • a flock of  sheep that produce over 150 lambs each Spring
  • outdoor pigs and a high welfare indoor pig unit housing our breeding sows
  • a small herd of  beef cattle
  • free-range hens kept for egg laying
  • seasonally reared free-range turkeys for sale at Christmas
  • ponies and  livery
  • goats, rabbits and guinea pigs
  • a range of vegetables and fruit grown in the fields and polytunnels
  • Pick Your Own soft fruit
  • a vineyard (the most northerly charity vineyard in Britain?!) and an orchard of heritage fruit trees
  • fields for silage, haylage and hay production

A real working farm on the edge of a big city!

We are a real working farm with machinery, large animals and some grumpy geese – so we have to make sure our visitors are looked after and safe. For that reason, public visits to the farm are restricted to guided tours at weekends and in the school holidays. If you are interested in visiting us, click here.
