Winter Park is Here!

January is here and, with it, comes all the excitement of our brand new Bloomfield Winter Park.  Although our first weekend was delayed due to weather, we are excited to see a Polar Vortex heading our way!  For four weekends beginning January 19th, we will have the opportunity to sled, ice skate, and enjoy time as a community around bonfires!  We can't wait to have you join us.  

While on property, you will also see our newly renovated Farm Activity Building (FAB), which looks amazing!  Inside, you can warm up, cozy next to our fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa or a belly full of mac and cheese from our very own local chef, Jeff Rose, and Caya Smokehouse.  In addition, every weekend will offer a themed event with unique festivities.  
We encourage you to come and enjoy the farm in the winter and all it has to offer!  

Please note:  every attendee will need a participation waiver on file.  In addition, there is a $5.00 entry fee for every person; however, children 2 and under are free.  Prospective attendees, as well as interested volunteers, are encouraged to keep current with the Bowers School Farm Facebook page, website, and newsletter for Winter Park schedule updates, theme and activity announcements, and more!

Bowers Farm Angus is Award Winning!

Sydney Crawford, a Bloomfield Hills High School Senior, and independent study student here at Bowers Farm, had an amazing showing at the 2018 Winter Beef Classic, sponsored by the Michigan Junior Livestock Society.  Sydney's Angus steer weighed in at 712 pounds at the show.  "Gus" placed 5th in his class out of 15 steers and defeated steers over twice his size.  The steer are judged based on their overall market beef value, which is determined in part by their gait and overall body proportionality.  Fantastic job, Sydney!  You represent the district and Bowers Farm well!

New Babies . . . Are Ewe Ready?

It is lambing season here at the farm!  Our first lambs were born on January 14, at 4:40 PM - a set of twins (boy and girl)!  Once they are settled and nursing well, they will move out to our new pasture, created through your generous support. It will be the perfect place for the Mamas to connect with their young in a natural environment.  We are eagerly anticipating their arrival and look forward to seeing all the new babies!
