About us

Millets Farm Falconry Centre is run by James and Sharon Channon, a husband and wife team with a passion for animals. James fell in love with birds of prey at a very young age, visiting centres, meeting falconers, reading books and watching shows across the country. After a lot of hard work and determination, 16-year-old James pooled his knowledge and skills and began his career working with birds of prey, basing his collection of birds at Fallowfields Hotel & Falconry.

Initially, Fallowfields Falconry only offered displays and experiences to the guests of the hotel but, as time went on and a positive reputation was developed, the small collection of birds was able to spread its wings and begin attending outside events and shows. After securing a special weekend slot at Millets Farm Centre, discussions began over making James’ collection a permanent fixture and so, with the help of his wife Sharon, James spent months designing and building Millets Farm Falconry Centre as the brand-new permanent home for their birds and animals. The Centre opened in May 2013.

Alongside their children Oliver and Maddie, James and Sharon continue to enjoy being able to work with birds of prey for a living and share their love and passion for the natural world with the visitors to the Falconry Centre. They look forward to welcoming you.

Mission statement

At Millets Farm Falconry Centre, our mission is to further understanding and respect for all animals, especially birds of prey, whilst providing a first class experience for all our visitors.

How we achieve these goals

We believe the key to proactive conservation begins with education. We have a dedicated education room on site where we welcome schools and groups for different talks on projects run both worldwide and by us.

We also strive to keep our animals in modern, naturalistic enclosures in accordance with best practice, enabling our visitors to experience a stimulating and enjoyable day out that is both excellent value for time and money.
