Bright Future Farms!
We are excited to be your local source for aquaponically grown produce! Our greenhouse has been in operation since 2017. Having accomplished growing produce in the deep water raft tanks, media beds and the NFT system, all with the scientifically proven aquaponics method, we're now going to introduce hydroponics growing to increase our volume. Due to the size of our aquaponics system, we can raise a certain amount of fish, which generates enough nutrients to grow a certain amount of lettuce. Utilizing hydroponics will allow us the additional growth required to meet the needs of our customers. Both methods of growing are without soil, and all produce is grown in the controlled environment of our greenhouse. Please continue watching our progress by checking out our blog.
You'll find us at indoor and outdoor farmers markets, and special events throughout the year. We're working on getting into local stores. Check our Events page for our current schedule.
It's good for us. It's good for you. It's good for the environment. It's that simple!
Aquaponics is the combination of aquaculture and hydroponics. It is a scientifically proven method of growing fish and produce in a soil-less self-sustaining system. One infrastructure for both fish and plants! The nutrients from the fish waste feed the plants. The plants filter the water to keep the fish healthy. This system is an efficient and dependable form of growing using minimal amounts of water and space. Organic, healthful fish and produce is the result.
Aquaponics is a completely natural system. No harmful chemicals or pesticides are added to the plants, which means safer, healthier, better tasting produce. Only a small amount of water is used since it is continuously filtered and recirculated. The system is in a controlled environment that offers fresh produce year-round. There is no chance of soil borne disease. Systems can be set up around the world, in the smallest spaces and less than ideal circumstances. It's a way to provide nutritional food to people who do not typically have access to it. It's good for the local economy. The list of benefits goes on and on!
