A Spring Day at Bowers Farm


"I had so much fun when my class went to Bowers School Farm!  My favorite part was holding the quail chick and seeing all the baby animals," shares Olivia Shepherd, Conant Elementary student.  "I thought goats and sheep were similar.  But when we walked by the sheep, they got spooked and ran away, and the goat followed us wherever we went!"

Bowers School Farm is a proud partner of Michigan State University Extension. The latest research-based curriculum and experiential methodology inform the instructional design of our hands-on school and community programs.

Focusing on the process of science, educators from MSU enhance the unique learning experiences, activities and hands-on workshops at the farm. These experiences give students the opportunity to understand the interconnectedness between science, food, and our natural world.
