Cannon Hall Farm

Cannon Hall Farm are a working farm and visitor attraction based in Barnsley.

The farm includes animal attractions, an adventure playground, indoor play and several restaurants. The business also has a farm shop, organises school visits and children’s parties. They’ve appeared on TV such as Channel 5’s Springtime on the Farm.

Project Objectives

Building a website to accommodate these things was a tough challenge, but something Cannon Hall Farm needed to tackle. They needed a website that could organise all their content. Not only that, they had to market their attractions, events and visitor information. They recognised that a new website would help promote their entire business better.

Our Work

We designed and built a new website which allows their visitors to view all their information, activities and prices. We built in the ability for visitors to book and buy tickets online. We also helped them sell their Christmas deli orders online for the first time.

Online booking features throughout the website encourage visitors to the farm. Parents can book their child’s birthday party online or book tickets for an event such as the Lambing Festival. 

Our work lead to:

  • Over 800 orders taken in 28 days through the Christmas deli and meat order systems
  • Over 100,00 users in first 3 months from launch of new website
  • Over 3,000 offers claimed through the new website

The new site has a much simpler user journey, presenting key information right when the user needs it. Opening times and prices are present at the top of every page. Users can also look at videos, check out the latest news stories and take a look at the farm map.

“We have worked with Genius Division for a number of years on our attraction website and now ecommerce website. From start to finish, their assistance has been invaluable. Not only did they make valuable suggestions during planning stages – but they also implemented a website that is leaps and bounds ahead of what we had previously.”

“Genius Division has completely transformed the way our site looks and is managed and their prompt support means our websites are always the best they can be”

How we can help your business

Cannon Hall Farm needed to distil a lot of information down into a simple website. They needed to create a successful website that made key information easy to find. After our work with Barnsley College, we were well-placed to design a website that did just that.
