Here’s a first: Rotterdam is creating a floating dairy farm

Having to transport food from farms to cities creates emissions. On top of that, food is less fresh when it’s being delivered from distant farms. A company in the Netherlands is taking a completely innovative approach to solving this problem by creating a floating dairy farm on the river that produces milk and yogurt near the center of Rotterdam, taking advantage of unused space while helping curb the expense and pollution associated with transporting food. If it works, more port cities could follow suit.
