P.A. Bowen Farmstead specializes in raising grass-based livestock and producing fine artisan raw cheese. Situated in the gentle hills of Marylandʼs Prince Georgeʼs County, the diverse multi-species farm seeks to mimic the patterns of nature using old-fashioned grazing techniques coupled with modern technologies. The different animal species work symbiotically to heal and build the soil, and to produce high-quality foods. Hormones, growth-enhancers, pesticides and herbicides are never used on P.A. Bowen Farmstead.

Farm owners Geoffrey Morell and Sally Fallon Morell co-founded the Weston A. Price Foundation in 1999, a non-profit nutrition education foundation that disseminates the research findings of Dr. Weston A. Price. In his studies of healthy, non-industrialized peoples, Dr. Price discovered the importance of meat, fat, organ meats and milk products from animals consuming green pasture, as sources of the all-important fat-soluble vitamins. In 2009, the Morells purchased the 58-acre P A Bowen property and the contiguous 39-acre Swanson Creek property with the goal of creating an integrated farm that not only supplies high-quality, pasture-fed products, but also will act as an engine for the economic revitalization of the whole region.

The Farmstead

P.A. Bowen Farmstead emphasizes rotational grazing for all farm species. All animals are provided with a habitat that allows them to thrive: pigs root through the forests; broilers in their chicken tractors and hens roaming freely work over the pastures recently grazed on by our dairy herd; and our beautiful Jersey cows, milked just once a day, are given new pasture daily. soy-free, corn-free and mostly locally grown.

The farm is also available for events such as fund-raisers, corporate picnics, and weddings.
