This is one of the profiles in an ongoing series covering next generation agriculture. We are seeing an increased trend for indoor farming across the United States and around the world. This is a positive trend given that local farming reduces adverse CO2 emissions from moving food long distances. If you would like us to review and profile your company, just let us know! Contact Us.
Company Profile: Dowie Farm
Here is a great example of a microgreen production farm serving the Boston and New Hampshire areas.
Here is some of the “About Us” content: Dowie Farm is a micro-farm located in Derry New Hampshire, owned and operated by Jon Dowie and Jenny Noviello. We believe strongly in sustainable practices. We employ regenerative and sustainable practices wherever possible. We simply believe in care for the land, care for each other, and a return of surplus to the land and environment. We love developing strong local business relationships to bolster the local economy and build strong communities!
We offer responsibly produced freshly cut microgreens for direct sale to consumers and delivery direct to restaurants. All of our left over microgreens and by-products (used soil and root mats) are fed to our duck, chicken, and quail flocks.

To date, the cost of man made lighting has been a barrier for indoor agriculture. A new generation of LED lighting provides cost effective opportunities for farmers to deliver local produce. Warehouses and greenhouses are both viable structures for next generation agriculture. Here is one example of next generation made in USA LED grow light technology to help farmers: Commercial LED Grow Lights.
