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!
