A floating vegetable farm on freshwater lakes where farmland is not available. The farm is solar powered to pump water to the crops and for power lighting for night safety. The farm is terraced so all the crops receive sun and the water pumped from the lake can trickle down. The farm would be pulled to shore for harvesting. The design is scalable for all size lakes.
