Join us at Hatfield Park Farm for the 2013 season
Come along and feed the traditional breeds of sheep and goats - we also have rare Bagot goats as seen on BBC Countryfile at Adam's Farm. There are ducks, geese, turkeys, Hungarian Woolly pigs and cattle too!
New attraction for 2013! A miniature train will run between 11am and 5pm on weekends, bank holidays and all school holidays. Train rides are part of the Hatfield Park Farm experience only and visitors can enjoy their 'free ride' with a valid Hatfield Park Farm ticket.Don't be an ass, come and see the donkeys! New for 2013, we are pleased to introduce "Jock, Dingo, Shaggy and Donald"
Having been fostered from The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth, Devon; Jock, Dingo, Shaggy and Donald recently arrived at Hatfield Park Farm and have been settling well into their new home. They all have cheeky characters and love lots of attention. They have their own paddock, with the Hungarian Woolly pigs as neighbours. You can "Meet the Donkeys" when they appear in the arena area where farm staff give an insight into the history of the donkey and the day-to-day care they need. Get up close and personal with your favourite donkey!
Enjoy walking amongst the paddocks to see the animals grazing or maybe take advantage of the feeding stations and see them up close. Children can play in the sand pits, bounce around on the tractor tyres and climb up and over the wooden tractor.
There are free regular tractor rides around the farm and new for 2013, a free miniature train ride with a valid admission ticket to the farm at weekends and during the school holidays.
See the blackboard at the farm entrance for details of all the activities available on the day of your visit such as daily shows, talks and demo's on the animals given by the Hatfield Park Farm staff.*From April onwards there will be "lambing live", bottle fed lambs and also shearing in the marquee during the summer*
