How to bridge the gab between farmer and citizen
The agriculture in the Netherlands is been set as one of the best in the world. A tiny country that produces a lot of products on a very small scale of land. Very intensive farming. This is what made our economy big. We are second largest exporter agricultural products in the world. To become so we invented farming systems where products can grow all year around. Travelling around the world made me realize how other countries look up to our way of farming. But the downside is that barns got closed, and agriculture got more industrialized. Because of the increase of scale and less and less people want to farm there is a bigger and bigger disconnect between farmers and citizens.
