If you are hungry for fresh, locally grown food, you will like the idea of virtual farming.
Similar to the millions people that play Farm Ville on Facebook, in Italy, you can actually farm your own vegetables and herbs online by choosing the size of the field and all the plants. These crops are then physically grown in real soil and after the harvest, are delivered to your home.
It is up to you how big you want your field to be and you also have the option to choose from 40 different types of vegetables.
