Boswyck Farms: Bushwick group teaches, designs farming, agriscience

Boswyck Farms, which doesn't make its business from selling food, installed its first solar powered hydroponic farm at Brooklyn's oldest building this summer.

Bushwick’s Boswyck Farms designs and develops farms and has agriscience curriculum in NYC for public school students and adults.

This summer, they built their first solar powered farm at the oldest building in Brooklyn, according to Brooklyn Based. In the article spokeswoman Chloe Bass, explains that the company was never about selling lots of food:

“We never wanted to be a commercial farm,” Bass said. “And as we honed our focus, doing the educational programs at a bigger level just made sense. Running the company has been as much scientific experimentation as what we actually do and you see what works based on the data of your experience. Everything else just fell away and education agreed with us.”

The company was founded in 2008. It shows six employees on its website.
