Portable

Farms (Aquaponics)

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.

Portable Farms™ Aquaponics Systems, the modern aquaponics, is a closed-loop food production facility housed in a climatically adapted structure. The units require some energy in order to grow very large quantities of produce and fish . The energy input includes both the fish food and some electricity, which can be solar or wind generated, to pump the air and water used in the system. It requires no other fertilizers, pest controls, added chemicals or additives.  All the vegetables are grown in grow beds filled with gravel. 
 

 

A semi-skilled man or woman can easily operate Portable Farm, bringing much needed income to many areas around the globe. 
Aquaponics is an environmentally safe and productive alternative to over-harvesting fish from oceans, rivers and streams by growing a fresh water, warm water fish, Tilapia.
In fact, warm water Tilapia are needed in order for the Portable Farm to work efficiently. After about 7 to 9 months, the fish are harvested at 1 1/4 pounds, which is two, four-ounce fillets.

 

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

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?

    This looks good and I'm interested.  But how do the plants get pollinated since they are inside? No bees, no tomatoes or cucumbers, etc.

    Your correct, no bugs, no butterflies, no ants etc. no food (in a regular organic garden with dirt) Phyllis Davis, President, Portable Farms just called me to let me know how it's all done. She mentioned that butterflies are the plants worst enemy, laying eggs and all…

    She also mentioned that most plants are self pollinating. The plants that are not, she goes in with an electric tooth brush, once a week, and spreads the pollen around. And she said, the fans they have in the units, also spread the pollen.

    How much would a system like this cost? It looks like it can get pretty hot in the greenhouse,what cools it?

      The fans keep the unit cool. As far as cost? You might want to contact them directly because they come in all sizes.
