Before you dismiss them as boring, these farming innovations are worth a look at -- these are, after all, the most cutting edge inventions and designs out there. From an abandoned farmhouse transformed into a giant playhouse, to eco-friendly hydrogen fuel cell tractors, we've featured only the best in agriculture, ranching and farming related innovations.

I'm certainly no expert in the field (no pun intended), but having lived on a farm myself for three years (yes, complete with cattle, combines and grain elevators) in Alberta, these farming innovations are particularly fascinating to me. However, if you have no interest in farming and are a true urbanite, you'll still love checking out fun trends like robot sheep that mow your lawn, viral Truckspills and rainboots for pigs.
