The Westview Orchards began as a small farm in 1813. With six and seven generations of the Bowerman family tilling the land, the orchards have grown as horticultural institution in Romeo, Michigan in Washington County. The incentive for the farmers market grew out of necessity as a surplus of peaches flooded the market in 1930. Interestingly as the farm grew, the family took on more and more horticultural projects. Today the Westview Orchards is know for its dedication to raising locally grown fruits and vegetables, along with amazing bakery goods. They are also known for their innovative activities that encourage both young and old to get actively involved on the farm.
