AMES, IOWA – Nebullam, Inc., an emerging indoor farming company located in the Iowa State University (ISU) Research Park, announced that it has launched a delivery service of its fresh food products to Central Iowa residents, to ensure that Iowans have access to locally grown lettuce, herbs, and microgreens during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as year-round.
Nebullam was founded in 2017 with a primary focus of improving indoor farming technologies to help indoor farm owners and operators become profitable, faster. Today, Nebullam owns and operates its own indoor farm within the Iowa State University Research Park.
“Over the past year, we’ve built strong partnerships with grocers such as Wheatsfield Co-op (Ames, Iowa), and restaurants throughout Central Iowa,” said Nebullam Co-Founder and Chief Farmer, Clayton Mooney. “When COVID-19 started to impact Iowa, and restaurant closures became a reality, we lost over 70% of our customer base. We’ve adapted by launching a farm-to-door program for Central Iowa residents. With this program, our sales are continuing to grow month over month, and I’m proud of how our team is helping Iowans to have consistent access to healthy food.”
Nebullam’s indoor farm produces red butterhead lettuce and microgreens such as broccoli sprouts and micro radish. At Nebullam.com/shop, Ames, Boone, Nevada, Ankeny, and Des Moines area residents can subscribe to have fresh produce delivered directly to their door, every week or every other week. In addition to Nebullam’s website options, you can always find fresh Nebullam lettuce and broccoli sprouts at Wheatsfield Co-op in Ames.
“What I appreciate most about Nebullam products is how safe they are from pathogens found in conventional agriculture. The technology used to grow the greens allows for incredibly precise control of the inputs required for growing food, so there is no waste or contamination of the environment. Customers appreciate fresh, high quality produce grown locally, and Nebullam checks off all three of those boxes,” said Adam Calder, Produce Department Manager at Wheatsfield Co-op.
“May is also National Salad Month, so we’re gifting fresh greens to families in need, for every new customer we pick up this month. Farm-to-door is here to stay, and we’re excited to serve Iowans,” said Mooney.
