Riding along on the boat through the Living with the Land exhibit at Future World: the green houses where large winter melons are grown along with a lot of other fruits and vegetables and a red tunnel where Tilapia and shrimp are grown. Much of the food produced in the Living with the Land exhibit supplies the restaurants throughout EPCOT and Disney World.
