South Carolina Orangeburg County Bowman
Bowman is located in Orangeburg County
, southeast of the City of Orangeburg
on US 178. It is the dairy capital of South Carolina.
Bowman has been a farming community since the town formed in the late 1800s. When the boll weevil decimated the cotton crop in the 1920s, area farmers bought more milk cows and took to dairy farming.
Where cotton once was king, milk
now reigns. Each day, around 20 dairy farms in the Bowman area milk between 50-700 cows each and ship up to 14,000 gallons of milk to processing and distribution plants in Orangeburg, Columbia
, and Florence
