SOMERVILLE — The owners at Pumpkin Vine Family Farm, 217 Hewett Road, plan to reopen their barn doors to the public from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, April 28, for a chance to meet and hug their new arrivals. They had 73 baby goats, better known as kids, born this spring.

Visitors can view a documentary on the births and then head into the kid pens. Visitors are asked to wear clean clothes and footwear to help keep all the babies healthy; a wash station will be outside the barn, but it’s important not to wear anything that has had contact with other animals, according to a news release from Kelly Payson-Roopchand, owner.

The farmers market will be open.

This is a free and busy event; registrations are not required. Donations to support the farm’s educational opportunities can be made in the cheese shop.
