Ray & Bev Bowman bought the farm in 1952. Opened for business that same fall season, sold apples, cider, & baked goods off of apple crates outside their small two car garage. Ray and Bev had 5 children Danny, Dave, Jackie, Kevin, & Rick, they lived in the main brick & white house which you all see while driving up the farm driveway! Over the years Ray and Bev worked side by Side with their son Kevin, & together they expanded the farm little by little each year!
