School Tour Directions to Pumpkinseed Hill

Our Pumpkinseed Hill Farm is located at 120 Beardsley Road, Shelton, CT. Please note, Pumpkinseed Hill is not the location of our Christmas Tree Farm, so please have the bus drivers and chaperones use the directions below (a PDF version of these directions is available for download at the bottom of this page for easy-printing).

We recommend arriving 10 minutes before your scheduled program time so we can take care of any final registration details and so your class can get the full benefit of their reserved time on the farm.  Please be aware that due to our full school tour schedule, if the group is late, they may miss the hay wagon tour.
