After 14 months, over 100 litres of paint and more than 150 baby animals, Greenmeadow Farm will reopen to visitors this weekend.
The farm in Cwmbran will open its doors on Saturday, but numbers will be restricted so visitors will need to book in advance.
Ongoing coronavirus restrictions will also mean visitors will need to wear masks indoors and there will be one way systems in some places.
However visitors will be able to spend as long as they like at the farm once they're there.
Torfaen’s Executive Member for the Environment, Cllr Fiona Cross, said: “As we reopen, the safety of visitors and ensuring they enjoy a covid-safe return to the farm is essential.
“To visit booking will be essential, and for the first few days entry will be staggered and visitors limited as we test our new systems and review the customer experience.
“Everyone is really excited to be welcoming guests back to the farm and all being well, we intend increasing numbers gradually up to the end of May.”
Manager Sally Partridge said the farm’s team had been working hard while it’s been closed to improve the site and provide a virtual experience.
She added: “We can’t wait to start welcoming people back to the farm. Our fabulous team have renovated the café, shop, education room and the tractor trail has been improved.
“We’re also launching our brand new website this week where visitors can have a look around, book tickets, keep up to date with latest news.
“We hope to be able to announce some new exciting additions later this year. Thank you to all those who completed our recent survey. Your answers will help to shape our future plans.”
