We originally, wanted to move out of the city to situate ourselves on some land with beautiful sunsets and space. We quickly decided we wanted to use some of the space we had to grow something that would bring us some joy. Upon further thought, we decided upon blackberries because they are one of our favorites, they grow beautifully & natively, and most of us have a nostalgia about them! Just think blackberry cobbler with homemade ice cream in summertime. What is better than that?
We are David and Amber Bowler. We were born and raised in the Springfield area. We have three grown sons and three grandkids. We have a love of the outdoors and growing our own food. We are dog lovers and enjoy being home to enjoy our family, yard, and pets.
My mom, Rhonda, and her best guy, Phil, have been a tremendous help to us! They have been there every step of the way, from encouragement to kicking us into gear to move on to the next phase when we got stuck. They showed up to work in every way.
We also could not have done it without family and friends who showed up for planting day and those who encourage us by their interest and inquiry.
