From Nike’s high-tech 3D billboard to Corona’s solar-powered posters, brands have been getting increasingly creative with their out-of-home (OOH) budgets. Now, British retailer Sainsbury’s has unveiled its own experiment: billboards you can harvest food from.

To highlight the autumn specials in its own luxury Taste the Difference range, the grocer has planted a series of billboards smack bang in the middle of some of the farms in the U.K. where its ingredients are harvested.
