What is Aquaponics?
Aquaponics is a combination of aquaculture and hydroponics. Aquaculture is the farming of fish for human consumption. Hydroponics is the growth of plants utilizing water only, eliminating the need for soil.
Both aquaculture and hydroponics have their drawbacks. Aquaculture possesses a constant need to remove fish waste from the water. Hydroponics possesses the constant need to add nutrients to the water. Aquaponics utilizes the waste from aquaculture to provide nutrients for the plants. Aquaponics also utilizes 95% less water than growing plants in soil, while producing a fully organic product. Plants grown using this method provide a higher nutrient content and superior taste than commercially soil grown products.
Beginning in 2015, we began to research and develop our own miniature aquaponics system. Over the last 4 years, we have perfected the aquaponic growing techniques along with biological processes needed to facilitate growth of a superior product. In addition, we are a family owned and operated farm, that strives to provide superior quality products to the local community. We also believe in the Farm To Table movement and lifestyle, and supporting other local farmers. All of the products we sell are locally grown, produced, or sourced.
