Education

Education is at the heart of Pineland Farms' mission. Our 5,000-acre property offers an inspiring classroom for all ages. Much of the learning takes place in our forests, fields and farmyards. Through hands-on participation visitors have the opportunity to explore their connections to the natural and agricultural resources of Maine.


Learning is at the heart of Pineland Farms' mission. As our culture in southern Maine shifts to an increasingly urban and suburban way of life, it is more important than ever to emphasize the vital role of farming.
