Education

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


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 agriculture and to foster the appreciation of our natural surroundings.

Adult Programming

Taught by local community members, artists, and professors, our adult enrichment classes offer focused instruction on a variety of subjects and skills. They are designed to engage participants in history, craft, agriculture, and ecology. Whether exploring the fiber arts, participating in an educational mushroom walk on our trails, or learning to make cheese, our programs will introduce you to new techniques and ideas and connect you to the local community.

Join us at the farm for an investigation of our past, present and future.
