Food & Agriculture
About Bowery Farming
At Bowery, we're re-thinking what agriculture looks like in a world where water is scarce, people live in cities, and we're waking up to the dangers of pesticides and other chemicals. Our produce comes from a growing process that not only has a positive impact on our health, but the health of the world around us.
From the unique way our produce is grown, to the extremely short distance it travels from our farms to you, every choice we make brings you vegetables at the height of freshness, flavor, and nutrition.
WE CONTROL EVERY ASPECT OF THE GROWING PROCESS, FROM SEED TO STORE, ENSURING QUALITY AND CARE AT EVERY STEP.
Food surrounds us, but we don't always think about where it comes from or how it got to us. At Bowery, we're solving the biggest challenges our food system is facing at a systemic level by re-thinking what agriculture looks like in a world with an ever-increasing population and rapidly dwindling resources.
