After weeks of virtual visits with Hancock Shaker Village's newborns, the public finally will have a chance to visit with the baby animals — calves, lambs, goats and its newest arrivals, piglets — in person.

The living history museum will have a limited opening today, with visitors confined to its outdoor spaces.

Visitors will not be able to touch the animals, get into the pens or go inside the Round Stone Barn, but they will have the opportunity to visit with baby goats, sheep and calves up close, as well as donkeys, cows and Veruca the 1,400-pound pig. They also will get a peek at 10 piglets, born Tuesday, through a window of the Dairy Ell.

See The Berkshire for details.
