Did the apocalypse ruin your crops this year? We’ve got you covered. Made in Japan by Dentsu the portable Chef’s Farm can harvest up to 60 heads of lettuce daily without a bit of sunlight. The idea is to provide locally-sourced vegetables to restaurants without the need for transportation. One thing remains unclear: how much water, electricity, and nutrients must be continually pumped into this $90,000 garden to produce such massive quantities of tasty tasty vegetation. Regardless, a pretty brilliant concept. (via treehugger)

Citrange. A simple fancy juicer by Quentin de Coster.
Citrange is a juicer designed by and for fruit. It is a product that is innovative both functionally and formally. This squeezer is divided into two parts to better adapt to the various diameters of citrus fruit. The juice is released by cells when the latter are pressed against the walls. Then it is directed towards the central axis of the object by the funnel (which filters out seeds) before falling into the glass.
A quick google suggests this might not actually be fore sale, but I’d love to be proved wrong. (via sub-studio)
Ballard Bee Company is an urban pollination company in Seattle, comprised of about 50 hives. Because Seattle limits the number of hives a resident can have their yard, Ballard contracts with dozens of individuals who volunteer to host hives in exchange for a couple bottles of glorious local honey each year. The end product is then sold to nearby restaurants and boutiques. A great interview with founder Corky Luster on Seattlest. (via mister crew)
