Fast food: Iowa farm provides produce minutes after it was picked

An Ames indoor farm is changing the way we think of farm-to-table: hundreds of subscribers in the Des Moines-Ames area get bright green bags delivered to their doorsteps each week. They are full of broccoli sprouts, tomatoes, and Nebullam's flagship product, red butterhead lettuce.

Two Iowans launched the operation several years ago. They own the supply chain, which means their produce is pesticide-free and grown year-round.

Nebullam Marketing Lead Jack Nelson said it is all carried out through sustainable practices. "I think it's really special that we're doing same-day harvest and delivery, because you're getting it an average of 180 minutes after it's been harvested versus 10-plus days across the country," Nelson said.

Nebullam will be launching an indoor farm in Des Moines in the coming months.
