According to Bowery,indoor farms provide a solution to impending water scarcity and don't require the use of harmful pesticides.The farms are unaffected by the weather or season changes,and they allow scientists to closely monitor the crop-growing process,enabling them to give the plants no more than exactly what they need.Bowery currentlygrows cropssuch as baby kale,arugula,and butterhead lettuce and supplies them to vegan-friendly restaurant chain Sweetgreen andWhole Foodsstores.

Speaking to Fortune earlier this year,,鲍里CEO Irving Fain said,,"We're growing post-organic produce,it's the next evolution.It's a better product for us and better way of growing and less destructive to the earth,we're using technology to grow the purest food possible.""

He continued,,"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.""
