Board your Pumpkin Pickin’ train at Sheepscot station (97 Cross Road, Alna) for a 20-minute steam-powered ride through the wild pine forests, farmlands and hamlets of the Sheepscot Valley to Top of Mountain where you’ll transfer to a tractor-drawn hay ride to the pumpkin patch at SeaLyon Farm.
At SeaLyon Farm, you’ll be able to go into the patch to pick your very own pumpkin(s) to take home while participating in other fun fall activities. Pumpkins are priced by size and can be purchased by cash or card at SeaLyon Farm after you pick. Board the hay ride with your perfect pumpkin in-hand for your return trip to Sheepscot. You can either sit with your pumpkin on the train, or if it is very large, put it aboard to pick up when the train arrives at Sheepscot. The entire experience takes just under 2.5 hours. However, trains return from SeaLyon Farm frequently (until 4:00pm) – so feel free to explore and enjoy the farm as long as you would like!
