The World's First Floating Farm Is Coming To Rotterdam

By Marissa Higgins

When you first hear the words "offshore" in a discussion about sustainability, you might think of offshore wind farms. And while those are absolutely important for energy generation, they're not the only way to utilize our oceans to make eco-friendly choices. What else could we do?

Well, the world's very first offshore dairy farm is set to open at the end of 2018. This dairy farm will be in the Port of Rotterdam, and it is being launched by Beladon, a Dutch property company. 

This farm-on-water is the first of its kind in a city port. While initially this might seem like a gag or pop-up project, the aim is to make it easier for the city to produce its own food.
