A little about ourselves...
Welcome, from the Friends of Bowers Farm!
In 2010, a small group of us organized as a 501(c)(3) non-profit so that we could raise money to support the property and programs that go on around the farm. Since then, we've grown to include many volunteers and participants through our fundraising events and community outreach efforts.
If you've enjoyed the farm on a visit and are looking for a way to give back, or if you just want a little country in your life, this group is for you!
Just before lambing season each spring, the wool from our Columbia sheep is shorn by students of the Bloomfield Hills Schools Bowers Academy and Agri Science classes. Friends of the Farm put that wool to good use by first washing and then delivering it to the Zeilinger Wool Company in Frankenmuth, MI where it was spun into yarn. Then, Frog Creek Socks in Pennsylvania knits the yarn into socks and other woolly goodies. Look for our socks for sale at most barn events!

On May 19th, our barn doors will be open for business! Pickers will find used tack and tools, plus household items, books and even furniture for sale. In the nearby Gazebo, other treasures and goodies will be offered by our friends at Preservation Bloomfield.
We welcome your donations. A donation receipt will be provided for tax purposes for each contribution.

We are working on plans for our next fundraiser and would like to hear from you! Currently up for consideration is the Pig Jig Barn Dance & BBQ and the Return to Your Roots farm-to-table dinner. We'd love to hear what you'd be interested in and if you might want to help out with a donation or by volunteering on a committee. Contact us today with your feedback and ideas!
