In 2017 Bowmanview Farms will see the next generation take the reins and continue the passion of farming and land stewardship. Aaron, Tasha, Emma and Aiden Bowman will be generation 5 and 6 and take the family tradition of Farming in Ontario to more than 150 years. Through the generations each family has made changes and this family brings with them new ideas to be initiated that will help to improve our product and ecological footprint.

We will be part of the tour and this year we will focus on agriculture. The plans are still on the drawing table but visit this webpage for up dates on the happenings of the June Tour.
What's New At the Farm
The Bowman’s have been farming in Canada for 161 years. We started near Mount Forest in Egremont Township 1854 and moved to the Durham Region in 1927. Farming is a passion for 5 generations and we are very proud of our agricultural heritage.
The Next Generation will soon be here!
Watch for our newest change . After 41 years we will be handing over the reins of Gallery on the Farm to our son Aaron and his family. They have been working with us over the last 4 years. Since Aaron and Tasha both have full time off farm jobs Eric and I will be semi retired as the store will continue with its regular hours. ( If the sign says Open we are here or call ahead.)
Currently Solina Community Centre and Valley View B&B have a quilt for you to admire.
Our barn quilt is complete and on the barn. The history of Bowmanview now Gallery on the Farm in historical form by using a 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
Currently in stock we have Chicken Tenders, Breasts, Drumsticks and Thighs. All products are sold frozen. For more info the website is yorkshirevalley.com
