The diversity of what Pineland Farms has to offer has led us to post informational signs outside of all open indoor spaces, to help guide you through your visit with us.

Barns on the Valley Farm are open to the public, some barns will be closed for essential employee access only. We have installed safety chains with signs to indicate this and we ask that you please refrain from entering all buildings marked as such.  The Family Farmyard is open by reservation. 2 Hour Farm Passes will be available for sale. Limited tickets are available for each 2 hour time slot. Family Programs are back with limited group sizes.
