Pineland Farms, connecting community with the land

  Located in New Gloucester, Maine Pineland Center was established in 1908 as a home for the "mentally challenged".  It finally closed in 1996.  It wasn't a place anyone would want to be, it really was in the wrong century.
  The transformation of Pineland has been remarkable, there are sections for business offices, some residential properties, and last but not least Pineland Farms.
  Pineland Farms mission is to educate the community (public) to the methods of agriculture for food production, and for leisure by raising horses.  Food products are raised and processed at the farm and are available to the public at a market.
