Terms never spoken just a few years ago are now entering the lexicon of those involved with the food industry: Urban agriculture. Vertical farming. Lab-grown meat. Plant based protein. Food-as-a-service. Statistics and forecasts about the future offer multiple explanations for this new vocabulary and emerging trends.
A friend of mine is a backyard, urban chicken farmer. She uses a traditional egg incubator to nurture, protect and grown her precious eggs into newborn chicks. Whenever she has tried to leave the eggs to fend for themselves, disaster has struck. Therefore, the preferred way to ensure a flourishing chicken population for my friend’s backyard coop is the use of an incubator. Food incubators offer similar features to emerging food industry companies.
