Family Programs

Family Programs at Pineland Farms
Here in the Education Department at Pineland Farms we are continuing to adapt our programming to fit the needs and interests of our farm visitors during these ever-changing times. We are offering seasonal outdoor programs as well as a few virtual opportunities throughout the year.  Please see our Event Calendar at the bottom of this page.

2 Hour Farm Pass
allows the public to visit the farm in person. Corn Maze opens September 3, 2021 and is included with a farm pass (tickets for corn maze will be on sale up to 1 week in advance).

Family Programs
We’ve brought many of our popular family programs back this year. They’re slightly shorter, held outdoors and modified for smaller groups but still just as fun!

Adult Programming
include ZOOM online classes and outdoor programs like Mushroom Walks with North Spore Mushrooms for groups of 20 people.

Fall on the Farm Events!
Join us for our favorite fall events like Harvest Festival, Corn Maze Nights & Fright Night on the Farm!

Dynamic Learning Days
Gather a small group of friends and let us tailor your farm experience to your interests. Topics vary seasonally but always include; farmyard explorations of our Education Barn and poultry coops, Dairy Tours and Ice Cream or Butter Making. We love to collaborate when designing farm experiences to meet your group’s needs! Book your small group today by calling 207.650.3031 or email education@pinelandfarms.org

Story Walk
Story Walk is a 1-mile stroll on our trails while stopping to read along the way. The walk begins near the disc golf courses across from the Market at 15 Farm View Dr. New Gloucester, ME. Look for the yellow sign. Call education at 207.650.3031 with any questions.


Family Programs are designed to educate and connect the community with the land through meaningful, hands-on exploration of agriculture, fields, and forests. Here at Pineland Farms we offer a variety of seasonal programming that is sure to engage children and adults of all ages.

Currently, tickets are limited and must be pre-purchased on our website ahead of time. Programs are $6 and located at the Education Barn unless otherwise noted. If you are registered for a program, there is no need to stop at our on-farm Visitors Center day of. Take your first right hand turn after passing our on-farm Visitors Center and the big white silo. There will be signs to guide your way. Please contact us with any questions at education@pinelandfarms.org or 207.650.3031.
