On land in the White Marsh that was once associated with working farm, new growth is taking root. But it does require clearing away building on site: All of the growing is done inside. We are turning what was once an industrial warehouse back into a modern farm, says Katie Seawell, chief marketing officer of Bowery Farming. In early November, Bowery Farming opened a new indoor farming operation inside a warehouse on Franklin Square Drive, and has been ramping up operations. First flag by Fast Company, its third and largest farm for New York-base startup, which in 2018 raise 90 million in Round led by Google Ventures. Using technology that allows farming to go beyond limits that land imposes, company has a mission to democratize access to fresh produce. It initially open two farms in Kearney, New Jersey, serving a tri-state area. With expansion to Baltimore, company is seeking a wider foothold in the mid-Atlantic. Seawell says the White Marsh location will open up distribution into 150-mile radius where it can reach a potential 25 million people. Companies look to hire locally even as they think regionally, and Seawell says White Marsh prove to be a transit-accessible location. When it is fully-staffed, Bowery Farming expects to have about 80 farmers working in space, in a mix of hourly and supervisory roles. Even for folks with no prior farming experience, Bowery looks to offer opportunities for farmers to move up within the organization as they gain skills. Farmers rotate through different roles on the farm, learning different aspects. Seawell recalls one farmer whom she met in the early days of Kearney farm, when he had role in the packing section. I just ran into him last week and he was now in a support role for ag science team, she say. They also seek out opportunities to support growth. In New York, engineering team recently taught coding class. Inside the farm itself, hydroponics process of growing plants without soil is key to vertical farming operation, and technology plays a big role, too. CEO Irving Fain teamed with cofounders to apply technology to big mission area. The team devised a system called BoweryOS to run farm, which uses visual systems, sensory systems and automation. With data-gathering techniques and machine learning, companies see their farms as network, so data is helping to build on what is being done at other two locations. Even though it is newest farm, the smartest farm weve ever had, Seawell say. When it comes to crops themselves, farm has leafy greens and herbs on the market now. Theyre available through Amazon Fresh, and Bowery is working on developing retail partnerships in the region to bring produce in spring and summer. The company is also working to move beyond the leafy Green category, which is often a staple of indoor farms, and is testing other crops.
