Off the coast of Rotterdam, Netherlands, a bizarre floating farm is providing locals with a fresh supply of milk.
The farm-boat-combo, created by an aptly-named company called Floating Farm, has been selling the milk of its 35 seafaring cows since May, CBC News reports. The mostly-automated operation is an undeniably weird bid to help make cities more self-sustaining — especially in the face of worsening climate change that threatens the area’s infrastructure.
Secret Cow Level
The farm is a three-story barge, according to CBC. The cows live on the top floor, but they can also wander ashore when the barge is docked — eating local grass clippings, potato peels, and beer broth, while supplying nearby fields with manure.
