We stock brown trout in our aquaponics system. Once the fish have grown to a markatable size we will be offering fresh and smoked fillets.
The aquaponics system contains a varitey of differnt plants, including lettuce, basil, tomotoes, peppers, and much more. We grow with the seasons to reduce our reliance on artificial lighting, so availibility will change throughout the year.
Aquaponics Courses and Tours
We will be offering tours of the aquaponics system in the spring, and hope to offer courses by the autumn. We will announce the first dates in the new year.
What is Aquaponics?
In Aquaponics the water from the fish tanks is pumped through the plant growing area. Bacteria and microorganisms in the system break down the waste in the water, turning it into nitrogen and other micronutrients that the plants need. The clean water is recirculated back to the fish tanks and the cycle continues. A well run aquaponics system will have a minimal water requirement, and requires no artificial fertilisers.
