Adopt an owl in the UK

A trip to the Jolly Barn is never complete without a visit to see our barn owls.

Have you ever thought about adopting one? Well, now you can. Whether it’s for you, or a gift for someone else, our owl adoption gift will make it present to remember.

Our ‘adopt an owl’ pack makes the perfect gift, costs a one-off payment of £30 and includes:

  1. An adoption certificate
  2. An owl fact sheet
  3. An owl cuddly toy
  4. Your name displayed on a thank you board near the owl enclosure in the Jolly Barn

If you’d like to include an entrance ticket to Folly Farm in your owl adoption gift pack the price is just £40 and includes all of the above plus an entrance ticket for one person (a saving of £9.95 on a standard adult day entry ticket).

How do I adopt an owl?

To adopt an owl just click through to the owl adoption page and choose if you’d like to adopt with, or without, an entrance ticket included.  You can adopt for yourself or for someone special and we’ll also send a special gift message along with your cuddly owl toy in your adoption pack.

Your owl adoption will last for 12 months, and 10% of the profit will help raise money for our conservation partners. So you can feel wise about giving this gift.

Schools and group organisations can also purchase our adoption packages. Please call the office on 01834 812731 to make arrangements.

Owl adoption reviews

"My daughter was over the moon with her adoption pack. We love Folly Farm and the owl is the first thing my daughter goes to see. We can't wait to come back after lockdown. Thank you."

"My son, Dexter, used the last of his birthday money to adopt the barn owls at Folly Farm. The adoption pack arrived very quickly and he LOVES his teddy owl! Thank you very much all!"

"My daughter saw the barn owl in the meet and greet. She wanted to help by adopting the owl. She loved the pack with the cuddly toy and showed off the certificate at school. Can't wait to return and see her name on the adoption list. Thanks Folly Farm."
