The Bowman’s have been farming in Canada for 161 years. We started near Mount Forest in Egremont Township 1856 and moved to the Durham Region in 1929. Farming is a passion for 5 generations and we are very proud of our agricultural heritage.
The Bowman family were proud to receive the Canadian Farm Family 150 years sign from the Durham Farm Connections in 2017 The group pictured here is from Clarington and is only half of the number of recipients for Clarington.
Our barn quilt is complete and on the barn. The history of Bowmanview Farms is depicted on the family designed wooden quilt block. 1929 -The year the Bowman's came to the area. The chicken and pig representing some of the early livestock on the farm and the beef cow showing that Thomas Bowman started the beef cattle and Eric returned to the beef cattle after raising Holsteins for many years. Eric's Dad ,encouraged by his father in law AJ Tamblyn, started Bowmanview Holsteins and Eric followed those steps until 2005. We chose Angus as there is a strong family tie to the Angus breed through James Bowman. TWEA represents the Bowman's - Thomas, Wilfrid, Eric and Aaron who will be the 4th generation on the farm. Watch as there will be more quilts dotting the countryside in the months to come
We are thrilled to be a part of the “ A Country Path”
