It’s that time of year again, if you are interested in purchasing locally grown chicken from our program, send us an email email@example.com or call the main office at 248-341-6475. They will be available for pick-up November 16th and 17th. They are sold on a first come, first serve and $4.50 a pound. The proceeds go towards funding educational field trips.
Every year, as a part of their inquiry focused and work-based learning, the agricultural science students at Bowers School Farm raise broilers (meat chickens). The students are entirely responsible for their care, learning everything from their needs at every stage of growth, to the correct environmental conditions, nutrition, handling, and final processing methods by transporting their birds to a USDA inspected facility. The whole project is a Career Development Event (CDE) that the students compete in with other agriculture students across the state. This project offers the opportunity to engage students in their food system and understand how their food is raised.
