The first floating farm in the world has been realized in Rotterdam. The main aims of this farm are animal welfare, circularity, sustainability and innovation, producing healthy food in cities, close to the consumer; a method known as ‘Transfarmation’. The Floating Farm is an iconic design using the latest technology, bringing the urban dweller as close as possible to the origin and preparation of daily food.
The reasoning behind the development of the Floating Farm is the increasing scarcity of agricultural land and growing populations, and the need to find new ways to continue to feed the world population in the future. Also, by building on the water it is possible to bring food production back into the cities, where space is available on canals, rivers and harbors.
During this tour you will learn all passion for sustainability and maintainable food production. about floating farming and meet the main tenants, the cows. We will demonstrate how the milk is processed into healthy dairy products, view the feeding robot and see how the manure is separated to be reused in the future as an organic and rich nutrient for plants.
Visitors are welcomed and guided by members of the Floating Farm team, a mix of professionals and volunteers who believe in this project. We all come from different backgrounds but have a shared passion for sustainability and future-proof food production.
