Urban Farmers is a sky farm located on top of the former Philips factory overlooking The Hague. They believe in producing veggies and grow fish in a more convenient, healthier, fresher and sustainable way, nearby where people actually live: in cities. Their awareness regarding sustainability and their unusual location for a farm makes them unique and really worth a visit.

Take a look behind the curtains

We participated in the Urban Farmers Backstage tour and it was a GREAT experience! The first welcome was heartwarming and the girl who did the tour was really passionate about Urban Farmers and her job there.
Before entering backstage we dressed up in protective gear. Then we started our tour in a room full of fish tanks. We could see the fish swim and our guide informed us with a detailed description of the procedures. Very interesting!

The incredible greenhouse with view over The Hague

After our visit to the room full of fish tanks we went upstairs to the roof where the greenhouse full of vegetables is located. It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining so the temperature in the greenhouse was very pleasant.

Aquaponics

They control every production step to ensure safety and quality of the product. Their goal is to maximise resource efficiency by using ‘aquaponics’. It’s an ancient technology, reinvented using sophisticated technology. It combines vegetable and fish production: nutrients rich waste water from fish production are recycled as fertilizer for vegetables, and plants can purify the water that will be reused for fish production.

Time for lunch

After visiting the fish tanks and the greenhouse we couldn’t wait for our lunch made of these beautiful products. We ordered two wraps and enjoyed them while overlooking The Hague. Isn’t it amazingly beautiful? 😍 Visiting Urban Farmers is very interesting and definitely worth while!
