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.
The cold weather has increased demand for these super warm socks! Supplies for the current season are limited so please
Contact us about reserving a pair soon!
