More about Bowman Farms:
Bowman Farms is a 17-acre livestock ranch dedicated to pasture raised meat goats and beef cattle. Bowman Farms was established in 2016 by owners Mark and Nancy Bowman with the goal of raising healthy, grass-fed livestock for wholesale and retail consumption on the Olympic Peninsula. As grass farmers, they take a long-term approach to rehabilitating their fields to increase fertility and production for year-round, non-irrigated animal rotations.
