Who knew oversized organic vegetables
could come from portable farms?
It is astounding to me that a 20 X 30 (600 sq.ft.) Aquaponics Portable Farm unit, will produce 3,600 vegetables and 1,400 pounds fish in a year! Talk about fresh organic food, and knowing exactly where your it comes from. What a space saver, and get this, a swamp cooler uses more water than an Aquaponics portable farm system does. Imagine for a moment that these portable farms were everywhere, people all over the globe could be enjoying wonderful organic vegetables and fresh fish.
Vegetables grow to an enormous size in the portable
farms, just check out this beautiful chard.
• No need to water your plants because a Portable Farms™ Aquaponics System uses a timed cycle to circulate the water throughout the system so the plants constantly receive a fresh supply of warm, nutrient-laden water. The Tilapia fish supply the nutrients.
• No soil – All plants grow in trays filled with gravel or river rock.
• No weeding! – Yea! Simply harvest and replant.
• No pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or fertilizers.
• No antibiotics or hormones.
• The Portable Farms™ Aquaponics Systems can be Solar or Wind Powered.
Here are just a sampling of what portable farms are able to grow

YELLOW CROOK -NECK SQUASH
The Portable Farms™ Aquaponics Systems duplicates what nature has been doing for billions of years. The water, containing the fish waste, is pumped out of the fish tanks to a settling tank, where the solids settle to the bottom of the tank while the nutrient-rich water then flows, by gravity, through a series of trays where the plants are growing, and then back into the fish tanks. The small amount of separated fish-waste water in the settling tank is drained off at regular intervals, and can be used to fertilize crops such as trees, ornamentals or lawns.The cycle of the water flowing through the system repeats itself several times each day.
Personally, I would love to have a portable farm in my backyard, or even a commercial portable farm that my surrounding community could enjoy.
How would having one change your life?
