Bright Future Farms!
We are excited to be your local source for aquaponically grown produce! Our system is a work in progress. We are currently operating Phase 1, which is the raft tanks, Phase 2, which is the media beds that utilize a flood and drain technique, and Phase 3, which is the NFT system. Please continue watching our progress by checking out our blog.
The controlled environment in our greenhouse means we will be growing fresh produce every day of the year!
You'll find us at indoor and outdoor farmers markets, and special events throughout the year. Our lettuce and microgreens have been selling very well. We now have cucumbers and available. We've converted the tomatoes to grow hydroponically, and have these available, as well. 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!
What we offer
Bright Future Farms is currently raising tilapia, several different types of lettuce and cucumbers in our aquaponics system. We also grow hydroponic tomatoes, and microgreens. More variety will be introduced as we learn and grow.
