“How and where you spend your time is one of the most important decisions you make. Believe it counts. Make it count.”

We’re a mission-driven team of creative builders, problem-solvers, and activators. Together, we’re reimagining farming from the ground up to eradicate trade-offs between quality and quantity, sustainability and scale, and healthy and delicious when it comes to the food we eat.

Some of our investors

As a NYC-founded company bringing fresh, local food to cities, our name stems from the origins of a historic lower Manhattan neighborhood. Settled by the Dutch in 1654, the Bowery (originally called bouwerij, the old Dutch word for farm) served as the great connector of farmlands to the heart of the city through the 17th century.
