Land to rent for grazing animals

We own a number of sites in the borough that you can rent for grazing animals.

When grazing land becomes available, we put it out for tender. We advertise it in the Barnsley Chronicle and on our available land and and property web page.

We don't have a waiting list system and are are not able to keep a record of your interest.
