Peter van W. wants people to have the freshest milk. His farm is near a large city in Holland. Forty cows live on the pontoon.
The roof catches rain for water. A robot milks the cows. The floors are soft rubber.
The cows are safe. And they do not get seasick.
Peter van Wingerden’s dairy farm is tied up in the big port of Rotterdam. His cows eat grass, grain, and potato peelings. All the food comes from places near the farm. It is cut, mixed, and loaded into feed boxes by wide, moving belts. Mr. van W. believes people should have fresh food right where they live. He has plans to build more floating farms in China and New York City. Deuteronomy 11:15 reminds us that God provides food for cattle.
