Bloomberg is running a video series right now called Next Jobs. It is a look at the careers of the future. Episode four is about a vertical farmer named Katie Morich and a startup called Bowery Farming, which does this out of a nondescript building in New Jersey.
The video focuses more on Katie’s life and less on vertical farming. But it did introduce me to Bowery Farming, which I am intrigued by. So I thought I would share both the video and the company. It is a compelling pitch: local production; ideal conditions; no pesticides; and software that optimizes it all.
