  • Warm Your Toes with Wool Socks Made from Bowers Farm Wool!

    The Friends of the Farm are selling wool socks produced by the Columbia sheep at the Charles L. Bowers School Farm. The wool was harvested from the sheep by students. Then the wool was cleaned by the Friends of the Farm members and sent to a Michigan Mill to be further cleaned and prepared into socks.

Charles L. Bowers School Farm was purchased in the mid-1960’s by the Bloomfield Hills School District to be used as a land laboratory. We are housed on 96 acres within Bloomfield Hills.

Residing at the farm are all animals typical of a working production farm. Sheep, horses, llama and a donkey graze the pastures. We also house poultry of all types, rabbits and goats. Every animal has a purpose here at the farm and farm equipment is used daily to maintain the property as an educational agriculture production enterprise.

Charles L. Bowers Farm is open daily and year-round for various educational programs and community events.  Please see “Programs and Events” to find out more detailed hours.
