SOMERVILLE — Pumpkin Vine Family Farm plans to reopen to the public Sunday, May 8, at 217 Hewett Road.

Visitors can experience every aspect of farm life, from good food and friends to fun outdoors with goats. The farm is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Sunday, May 8 through Dec. 18, according to a news release from the farm.

The Farmers Market has expanded and moved to a scenic location overlooking the back fields, but is still handicap accessible and offers incentives to SNAP shoppers for bonus fruits and vegetables.

The sloping picnic lawn offers a variety of opportunities for outdoor dining, from blankets and tables to live-edge benches from Hidden Valley Nature Center.

The Goat Trails are freshly marked and can be experience by one’s self or through a guided goat hike. The farm is reviving its monthly hands-on educational events, beginning with Kid Hugging on May 15.

All events are free and open to the public. Donations are welcome.

To learn more, visit, or contact Kelly Payson-Roopchand at or 207-549-3096.
