New! Floating farm in Holland

New! Floating farm in Holland

As you may know Holland lies mainly below sea level, which made us quite good at managing water. Here I think we find the ultimate combination of two Dutch specialties: agriculture and maritime technology. The floating farm offers us the possibility to not only farm on the land, but also on the water. This summer, a pilot location will be build in Rotterdam, one of the largest cities of the Netherlands.

The farm will be producing and selling products as a normal farm, but also focuses on animal welfare and education. The farm is designed as a cow garden, to create a natural environment. Also visitors can see how the cows are being milked and what happens with the milk after.

The floating farm is developed by three organizations:

  • Courage
  • Uit je eigen stad
  • Beladon

More information on their (Dutch) website: floatingfarm.nl/

We for one are very interested and would like to see it when it's done.
What do you think of this concept? Please share your thoughts below!

Humans farming animals for consumption is a greater problem for the plant than most people realise. I doubt it matters whether this is done on land or water. Eat plants, the human body can get everything it needs from them.
