A Little About Ourselves...
Welcome, from the Friends of Bowers Farm!
In 2010, a small group of us organized as a 501(c)(3) non-profit so that we could raise money to support the property and programs that go on around the farm. Since then, we've grown to include many volunteers and participants through our fundraising events and community outreach efforts.
If you've enjoyed the farm on a visit and are looking for a way to give back, or if you just want a little country in your life, this group is for you!
Supporting the Farm
To support, preserve and enhance the Bowers Farm property, programs and activities through financial support, community outreach and volunteerism.

- Going on the Road with the Travelling Farm
- Organizing the Pig Jig Country Dance
- Special Dinners: Potlucks and Farm-to-Table
