Since 2009 we have been researching, developing and operating aquaponic gardens and community farms. Tawnya and JD Sawyer built and operated Flourish Farms at the Growhaus, a 3,000 sq ft aquaponic farm, managing every aspect of food production, distribution, marketing, and food safety for over five years. In 2015 we built and operated a 5,400 sq ft state of the art aquaponic greenhouse in partnership with the Mental Health Center of Denver.
Throughout this time we have been teaching farmers, designing systems and continuously improving our farms to be the best in the industry. As proud owners of the Aquaponic Source we have assembled a great team to help design, manufacture, install and support farm systems all over North America.
Some have claimed that aquaponics can’t be profitable at a small scale. We proved that aquaponics can be profitable with the right system, a good business plan, proper training and a resolve to overcome any obstacle. While we know that running an aquaponics farm can be rewarding it is also not without its challenges and risks. We feel it is our moral and ethical responsibility to provide honest feedback if we don’t feel aquaponics is the best solution. Ultimately our success depends on our farmers being successful.
