Bowers School Farm Logo

Bowers School Farm has been housed on 90 acres within Bloomfield Hills since the 1960's.  Animals such as  sheep, horses, and a llama graze the pastures. Bowers Farm is also home to poultry of all types, rabbits and goats. Every animal has a purpose at the farm and farm equipment is used daily to maintain the property for educational  purposes as well as agriculture production. Bowers Farm is open daily (by appointment only) and year-round for various educational programs and community events!




Preschool Learning Expeditions are an excellent way to get out of the classroom and into nature!


Learning Expeditions are geared for the curious mind.


Working together makes us better at what we do


Experienced horse enthusiasts are invited to help support, enjoy and share the horses at Bowers School Farm.


Many hands make light work - especially on a farm!


Join us for the summer and spend one week or the whole summer outside, enjoying fresh air and animal fun!


All year long, the farm offers community events and opportunities for members of the community to get involved.


Dreaming of a farm wedding?  Planning your next corporate retreat or team-building event?  Give us a call!

Register for Winter Horse Fun!

Come inside for a cup of hot cocoa and polish up on your techniques and know-how during our "Handy Horse" wintertime Saddle Social at Bowers Farm Learning Center. We'll share techniques through exercises, videos, and games. As weather permits, we'll also spend time in the barn for some hands-on time with our (very fuzzy!) horses.  Additionally, our "Horses Indoors & More" series allows hands-on horse interaction at Stillwater Stables in Ortonville where you can meet new horses and work on your Level 2 and Level 3 skills inside an indoor arena.  Both event series are hosted by Friends of Bowers Farm - Community Horse Program and are for ages 8 - adult (8-12 year old must be accompanied by an adult). To sign-up, go to:

Have Snow, Will Sled!

Winter Park is coming in just 7 weeks!  We cannot wait to celebrate winter as a community and enjoy sledding, skating, and concessions.  As part of winter park this year, we want to remind you that this is a perfect “meet up” location for your school group, youth group, or even your gaggle of cousins to come hang out in our heated Farm Activity Building or ice skate under the lights.  Admission this year is FREE. We will be open on Saturdays and Sundays (January 18 - February 9).  See you on the hill!
