Kid Hugging Returns!
Hug a Furry Baby on Sunday, May 14 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!
Bring your sense of wonder for a special Dairy Magic event at Pumpkin Vine Family Farm on Sunday, June 18 from 11:30 am – 3:00 pm.
Will be celebrating all that dairy adds to our lives (imagine coffee without cream, for starters…)
Whether you’re 7 or 77, you’ll have fun learning how our goats make that magic happen (not everyone can turn grass into milk!).
