Bowery Farming Team Lunch
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.

Bowery Farming Team Picture
We are all modern farmers, and our core values guide everything we do — from building a better future to getting down in the (metaphorical) dirt.
Our Values


Think Wildly Different

Break Barriers Together

Be Kind to the Core

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.
