Farms & Agriculture

Situated on some of the most picturesque landscapes in Maine, our working farms are an essential part of the community. They provide local milk and fresh seasonal produce to many area retailers as well as our own Market. Our world-class dairy farm serves as an educational facility for children and adults to learn about sustainable food and farming practices.

Our Equestrian Center offers top-level dressage programs for riders and trainers of all levels in a premiere facility.

Check out our Calendar for information on classes and events at our farms.

Educational Programs

The Equestrian Center’s heated arena makes it an ideal venue for late season events such as the December 2014 symposium with FEI 5* judges Stephen Clarke (GBR) and Gary Rockwell (USA).
In addition to the daily training schedule, The Equestrian Center hosts a number of national and international experts each year. These have included Stephen Clarke, Christoph Hess, Robert Dover, Angelika Fromming, Johann Hinnemann, Gary Rockwell, Terry Ciotti Gallo, Kristi Wysocki, Ashley Holzer, and Michael Klimke. Events taking place at the facility include equine veterinary conferences, training clinics, musical freestyle design, and large-scale symposia. Pineland Farms has also extended its facilities and staff to organizations including Lendon Gray's Emerging Dressage Athlete Program and the New England Dressage Association.

Pineland Farms is committed to improving the sport of dressage through affordable access to top elite dressage education. Training scholarships are available to professionals and dedicated amateur riders who meet the program's criteria.
