Pittston Farms was established in the late 1800's. Through time, this historic place has had some major overhauls. The new owner's, Guy & Jenn Mills, have made this out of the way establishment a very pleasant experience. The location is what it is supposed to be. Pittston Farms cater to the avid sportsman no matter how young & old. No matter if female or male. This well run establishment lives up to it's expectations. Situated in Rockwood, Maine, people from near & far have the opportunity to experience the " true" Maine wildlife experience. From the hands on owners of Guy & Jenn Mills to the " all around" handy man, Tony, one has to experience the motto, " Maine the way life should be." From the home cooked meals , and plenty of them, to the rustic cabins & main house, one can not only hear but smell the deep woods in which this historic place sits. People not only come to enjoy the home cooked meals, but enjoy the four seasons as well. Last year, this historic expanse served over 17,000 snowmobilers along with the many who hunt & fish. Since taking over, Jenn & Guy have done a revamping of their price structure which will certainly enhance this institution for years to come.
