Our Programs...

You will find the Friends of Bowers Farm organization hosting and supporting a variety of events at the farm throughout the year. Sometimes, we are behind the counter, serving hot cocoa and donuts - or you might find us doing things like organizing a spring egg scramble for kids in the community. We also host special fundraisers, such as The Pig Jig country dancing event and the Return to Your Roots farm-to-table dinner and auction.

When Bowers Farm opens for community events and gatherings, you might see Friends of Bowers Farm volunteers helping at various stations to share information about our horses, chickens and pigs. In the spring, our Egg Scramble was a highlight for the kids and helped to build our treasury.

Volunteers gather to help with maintenance and service projects around the farm. Examples include working to clear the area around the gazebo of the invasive garlic mustard and to weed around the Cottage. Another year found us supervising students who came to work for community service hours.

Friends of Bowers Farm volunteers work with Bowers Farm agricultural education students to gather wool from the sheep at Bowers Farm. It is cleaned and processed; then the used to make socks and other wooly goodies for sale.

From Winter Fest to Barn Sales to Concessions, to Egg Scrambles & Return to Your Roots, (which featured a gourmet Farm to Table dinner and silent auction under a big top tent), we have been working like busy bees to grow our treasury for improvements like the blue fencing inside and out on the west side of the poultry house.
