Aquaponics: Better Than Everyday Organic?

 

organic aquaponic produce


What can be better than eating organic produce? Eating organically can help reduce exposure to pesticides and weed killers. However, organic farmers may still use organic pesticides that simply cannot be used in aquaponics. 

Bottom Line: There is no cheating on this with aquaponics: We can’t use chemical pesticides of ANY kind or our fish would die, period. 

Even most approved organic pesticides would kill our fish. The fish act as the “canary in the coal mine”, and force the aquaponics farmer to be completely honest. Even our tap water in Bend contains chloramine, which is an additive much like chlorine that would kill our fish.

Aquaponics mimics the natural symbiotic relationship between fish & plants. Even traditional organic farms need to supplement their soil with fertilizers. These fertilizers can be bad for the over health of the soil and watershed. Since we are growing our greens indoors, we don’t have to worry about sprays from farms next door blowing in the wind over onto our crops, and we don’t have to worry about mysterious G.M.O. plants appearing in our crops.

Our farm is located right next to downtown Bend! We grow and harvest locally and we deliver to your local grocery store in the same day! You can find our lettuce and basil at Newport Market, Whole Foods, Safeway, and Market of Choice.  What you are eating is 100% organic and completely chemical free! And, we do not grow any G.M.O. plants.

Please give our produce a try and let us know what you think! We love what we do and we believe in giving you the most nutrient rich and highest quality produce. We hope you love what our local farm is producing for you.

    certainly like your website but you have to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to inform the reality on the other hand I will surely come back again.
