Bowman Orchards

19944 Montana 35
Bigfork, MT 59911


The Bowman family has been growing famous Flathead sweet cherries since the 1920's when two brothers, Adam and Eby Bowman, planted the original family orchards on the East Shore of Flathead Lake. They cleared the timbered land with the teams of horses, dynamited large rocks and cultivated the ground (with horses) in preparation for growing fruit trees. The two young men and their father, Simon, raised their own food, fished and hunted in this primitive area that had more animals than people and a wagon trail instead of a road.
