A new project seeks to build a farm on water as a step toward creating self-sufficient cities.

In the Netherlands, a floating production farm is in the works. The goal is for it to produce daily fresh dairy products and provide a space to conduct research on sustainability measures. The creators believe building a farm on water is an efficient use of space and the best way to provide food to the local area. Although urban farming startups exist, they cannot produce nearly enough food or variety to create a dent in the food supply available. The opening of the Floating Farm is set for January 2017.
