Bowman family awarded annual Ag Center Pioneer Award

A year ago, I wrote - Time Flies “Bowman family awarded annual Ag Center Pioneer Award” by Kevin Dayhoff February 24, 2017


Romantic that I am, I took my wife out on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, to the annual Carroll County Agriculture Center dinner. Since 1993, the annual dinner has been used as an opportunity to honor individuals and businesses with the "Pioneer Award," in recognition for longstanding service to the Carroll County agriculture community and the Agriculture Center,

This year's award went to the R.D. Bowman family, which has been a cornerstone of the agricultural community through the family businesses that date back to 1928. Dirk Bowman and his wife Julie attended the dinner to receive the award on behalf of the family.

Dirk, his brother Dale, and his sister Dawn DeVivo are the third-generation owners of the Westminster feed sales business, R.D. Bowman & Sons Inc., and the Home & Garden Center, which opened in 1981.

According to a March 24, 1993 article in The Baltimore Sun by writers Ellie Baublitz and Tom Keyser, "In 1928, Ralph Dutterer Bowman bought a little country grocery store in Union Mills on a dirt road that is now Route 97, or Littlestown Pike. He operated the store for more than 30 years, during which time the big event was the Friday night banana auction.

Families explore Carroll Agriculture Center corn maze - Carroll County Times: Local

Families explore Carroll Agriculture Center corn maze - Carroll County Times: Local:
"Posted: Monday, October 7, 2013 12:15 am

By Timothy Sandoval Times Staff Writer with great pictures by Dylan Slagle...

http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/news/local/families-explore-carroll-agriculture-center-corn-maze/article_47c513f6-0116-5156-8fb1-7376254309bf.html

It would not be odd to see a farmer, a cow, a horse, a deer, corn stalks or a bird in Carroll County — just maybe not all in a corn field at one time.

A depiction of all these figures, meant to symbolize the many creatures that consume corn, can be found in a corn field near the Carroll County Agriculture Center and Shipley Arena in Westminster. The center used the help of GPS technology to mow the figures, which encompass roughly three miles, into the field as the route for their fourth annual corn maze.

“It’s gone well,” said agriculture center board member Caroline Babylon, of the corn maze over the years. “It’s a major fundraiser for us.”"
