Kid Hugging Returns!
Hug a Furry Baby on Sunday, May 15 between 11am -3pm at Pumpkin Vine Family Farm, 217 Hewett Rd in Somerville!
We are excited to be re-opening our barn doors to the public for a chance to meet our new arrivals. April was a busy month on the farm, with 34 Mama goats giving birth to 1, 2, or 3 baby goats, better known as “kids,” (because they like to play of course!) Visitors can view a special new documentary on the baby’s birth, and then head into the kid pens for a snuggle.
Whether this is your first visit, or an anticipated spring tradition, you don’t want to miss this warm and fuzzy experience!
