Bowery Celebrates Our New Farm!
On your first day of work at Bowery, the people operations team shares our company values. We know what you’re thinking, “sure, every company has a similar list of positive statements, but who actually references them after day one?”
Well, we do! All the time, actually. Our CEO, Irving Fain, consistently calls out specific values at our all-hands meetings. And, cheesy as it is, we give out awards to team members every week who exemplify our values. To us, this list is not only a guide to cultivate Bowery’s culture, but also a reminder of what we’re working to accomplish as a company.
At the top: “We believe a better future is possible.” And, in order to grow food for a better future, we’re going to “Set Big, Bold Goals.”
Our biggest company goal for 2018? Build a second Bowery farm, but make it the most automated farm in the world and 30x more productive than our last. It took a lot of trial and error, but we got ahead by getting started. And when it happened this month, we stopped what we were doing to celebrate the win with our friends and families together.
Congratulations to the team behind this big milestone; we’re excited to see what Bowery will accomplish in 2019.
