Hatfield Park Farm reopens to the public next month and visitors will be able to see a number of new arrivals this season.

Animal lovers can enjoy the delights of the farm with a season ticket when it opens in March.

Kaitlin and Delyth are White Park cattle who have arrived at the Hatfield farm.

White Park is a very old breed of beef cattle, kept in Britain for more than 2,000 years. However, the breed is now rare.

A spokeswoman for the farm added: “We also have increased our numbers of Manx Loaghtan sheep, one of the rare breeds of sheep on the watch list of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.”

During the spring months, a visit to the lambing enclosure is a must.

This year the farm in the grounds of Hatfield House has the perfect ticket for loyal visitors, with season tickets now available.

The season ticket will give you unlimited visits to the farm – perfect for the school holidays.

From March 20, when the farm opens for the 2018 season, the farm will be offering the following four season ticket options:

• 1 adult and 1 child for just £40.

• 1 adult and up to 2 children for £65.

• 2 adults and up to 1 child for £70.

• 2 adults and up to 2 children for £80.

Hatfield Park Farm will be open Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 5pm.

Last entry to the farm will be at 4pm when the animals start going to bed.

The farm is also open on Mondays during Hertfordshire school holidays, as well as Bank Holiday Mondays.

Admission prices are £5 adults, £2.50 children, and free for under three years.

Entrance to Bloody Hollow is included in the price.

Entrance to Bloody Hollow only is £1 per person aged three and over.

A farm ticket entitles you to free tractor and trailer ride (when running between 11am and 3pm) and entry to Bloody Hollow play area.

There is also a miniature train ride for which there is an additional charge.
