The Netherlands envisions farms of the future to grow all food types to sustain the needs of its cities.

The Netherlands has started funding for a ‘Park Supermarket,’ which is intended to have a working prototype in 2012. This huge project spans 74 acres across the Dutch countryside, and it is divided into sections depending on the type of food being grown or farmed, whether it is meat, dairy, or produce. The concept was created by Van Bergen Kolpa Architecten, and this supermarket and farm in one is said to be able to support the food needs of several large Dutch cities – a population of roughly eight million. Park Supermarket can grow crops like kiwi fruit and pandan, even though these are native to tropical regions, thanks to temperature control technologies combined with smart farming methods.
