A Tradition Begins
On April 12, 1858, a family farming tradition spanning six generations began when Van Rensselaer Fowler purchased 80 acres of lush farmland south of Lake Ontario in Huron, NY.
Over the years he and his wife, Maria, worked the land into a thriving fruit and vegetable farm while raising their nine children. The daily burdens of growing a farming business by hand, while also raising a family, were met with the determination and integrity that would come to define Fowler Farms.
Each new generation has carried the Fowler name forward with the same strong work ethic and high standards as the one preceding it. Learn more with our timeline of history above.
