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 […]
Our objective in building the first Aquaponic Mini Farm (AMF1) is to proof test lowest capital cost aquaponic systems for 5-20 thousand square foot AMF installations. These will be located in urban and suburban environments. We are doing so at our first location in Palm Beach County. Testing low capital […]
Aquaponic Mini Farm #1 (AMF1), in Palm Beach County, is Fresh Table Farms’ first farm location. It is our goal at AMF1 to explore low capital cost construction for scalable aquaponic farming. We have a vision of hyperlocal farming grids made of AMF’s built on fallow land in urban and suburban locations with 5-15 year use […]
The tunnel needs more shade cloth and I still need to add the purlins, but it’s a good start… We’re building what we hope is the first in a series of “Aquaponic Mini Farms” with which we hope to help disrupt the factory farming system. Each “AMF” will provide a fresh […]
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.
