Tina Bowles and her husband are the owners of Bowles Farms, that host many different events during the year in St. Mary’s County. 

“This is our 11 year hosting this event, we donate our farm to two wonderful organizations, it is a major fund raiser tor the Seventh District Rescue Squad and the Seventh District Optimist Club,” Said Bowles.
