Floating Farm Could Be Harbinger Of The Future Of Agriculture

June 1, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
A Dutch building developer who specializes in floating structures is constructing a variation on the urban farm concept. The floating dairy farm will house 60 cows producing milk, cheese, cream, butter, and yogurt, and will demonstrate how self-sufficiency can be achieved on rivers and in harbors. Peter van Wingerden, director of Beladon, hopes to someday build fully floating, self-sustaining cities that will provide their own essential elements like clean water, energy, food, and waste management. The Floating Farm is expected to be finished in  Rotterdam's Merwe harbor in January 2017.
