Dutch consider high-rise farm

By FWi staff

HIGH-RISE farms could become a familiar sight in the Netherlands if a new plan gets the go-ahead.

Proposals have been put forward for a 62.5 acre (25ha), six-storey Agropark in Rotterdam, reports The Times.

This would house 300,000 pigs, a million chickens, salmon tanks, mushroom beds, and a rooftop greenhouse for greens and strawberries.
