The cows arrived on the farm earlier this week.

The world’s first floating farm is now home to thirty-two Montbelliard cows; the cattle arrived in Rotterdam, the Netherlands earlier this week.

In a statement on its Instagram, the owners of the farm said: “Our ladies have arrived. The cows are already having a great time on our farm, but we would like to give them time to get used to their new barn, the milking robot and all other gadgets.”

“We will soon be open for visitors, so keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram. In the meantime, we will keep everyone informed with photos and videos.”

Aim

The aim of the farm is to bring urban dwellers as close as possible to the origin and preparation of their daily food.

“Floating Farm produces healthy food in a circular and climate adaptive way where people live.”

“In this way, we contribute to a healthier, more aware and sustainable society.”

Farm

The cattle are fed brewers’ grains, grass and potato scrapings. The farm has spacious stalls, a milk robot, a slurry robot, a rubber floor, an automatic belt feeder and solar panels.

“The design of our floating farm is based on animal welfare.”
