The future of Agriculture could be…shipping containers?

There must be something in the family genes of the Musk family.  Elon, the founder of Telsa, SpaceX and his brother, Kimbal, is making a name for himself in the food industry.

We won’t focus much on his revolutionary restaurant venture, but will instead focus on his plans for the future of farming.  Hydroponics, which is a topic we know and love.  Using old shipping container, Musk’s farm system is a self container farm that can grow crops year round, no matter it’s location nor the outside environment.  This has huge potential in urban areas where many restaurants are now looking to buy produce locally.

Check out the video below from Beme News and see what all the fuss is about.
