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.
