The great expansion of 2016 is underway. We have a new 80 foot pond that the Fancy Chicken dug for us. This pond, once stocked with fish, will support 20 deep water culture (DWC) grow beds! Our prototype for DWC beds built without cinderblocks is being tested. This will make […]

Building the aquaponic mini farm at Solace Farm has been an amazing experience for brothers Jim and Peter Hubshman. After two years of research they formed their company and partnered with Solace International on Solace Farm in Palm Beach County FL to start the AMF at Solace Farm (Aquaponic Mini Farm). They raised money with a few friends, and salvaged bricks from the back of tenements and astro-turf from a farm friendly salvage company, and created a low cost beta test for their aquaponic tech. The brothers are nearing completion of the first aquaponic fish tank and grow bed in their system and expect to begin lettuce production in the next few weeks.
