When I first met Katie Seawell, she was draped head to toe with PPE. A full body suit, rubber gloves, shoe covers—the works. You’d think she was preparing to walk into a COVID unit for patients, but we were about as far away from a healthcare facility as you can get, in a building located within a drab-looking office park under a bridge in Kearny, New Jersey.

From the outside, it didn’t seem like there could be anything worthwhile going on here.

Inside, however, were rows and rows of fruits and vegetables on top of each other in what looked like skyscrapers of produce. I saw lettuce, radishes, mustard greens, and a whole host of other crops easily found in a local grocery store. It was what the future of food is supposed to look like—at least, one version of it called vertical farming. For Bowery Farms, the company that runs this project, this is a critical part of the fight to keep people fed during tumultuous changes caused by climate change and supply chain challenges. The company’s leaders see their role as growing increasingly pivotal as these issues worsen over time.

“We build farms close to the communities we are serving in and that cuts down on food miles,” Seawell, the chief commercial officer for Bowery Farms, told The Daily Beast.

One of those communities is the New York metro area, which has become a case study for what the impact of vertical farming can be, and a model for how to address the elements of climate change fueled by the agricultural business.

    “Bowery’s journey started by answering the questions of how do you provide fresh food for an urban environment and how do that in a way that is more efficient and much more sustainable,” said Irving Fain, the company’s CEO and founder.

    Bowery Farms, the largest vertical farm company in the United States, is a testament to the interest around revamping the food industry to meet sustainability goals. The company reportedly grows 80,000 pounds of produce a week, and is expanding. It recently opened a facility in Baltimore and will open another in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

    Right now Bowery grows an array of delectable and otherwise unforgettable fruits and vegetables, including a mustard green which has a strong horseradish bite to it and sorrel that tastes exactly like an apple. It is set to introduce other new crops to the market including strawberries.

    Candace Owens tears into Stacey Abrams as corrupt and connected

    Talk show host and political commentator Candace Owens took a swing at Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams on Friday night, calling her "corrupt" and "entitled" during an appearance on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle." 

    CANDACE OWENS: "Yes, she does feel entitled, I think that she's one of those people that you can say is true to her soul, a Black Lives Matter activist, and I don't mean that in a good way. I'm talking about, you know, illogically always throwing race into the narrative, thinks that she's she should be the first that people should listen to everything she says simply because she's a Black woman and she really does have bad policies. And let's also, let's not forget, she's also impossibly corrupt. You know, Stacey Abrams, it was her sister that was a federal judge who dismissed when they wanted to clean up their voter rolls in Georgia. She wants to make sure people can get on the voter rolls that are not eligible to vote to make sure that she can win elections." 

    CANDACE OWENS: "So she is somebody that you should watch out for. I can't imagine why any person, any sane individual, would want her leading their state unless you are a glutton for crime, a glutton for punishment. You're a fan of maybe the ‘Batman’ movies and you want to see what it looks like to live in Gotham City. But there's really no reason that any sane person would want to turn Georgia into a New York or an L.A. situation. But like I said, people should pay attention because she is very corrupt and she is very connected. And she has shown in the past that she will do nothing to stop winning, to stop herself from winning."
