Our Aquaponics Process

An Evolution in Farming

Traders Hill Farm Aquaponics efficiently combines aquaculture and hydroponics.

1: Fish Fuel

Tilapia drive our process, living and swimming in spacious, environment controlled water tanks.

2: Good Bacteria

Through natural biological excretions, they enrich the water with a host of beneficial bacteria.

3: Natural Plant Food

Using our proprietary process, we filter the bacteria and convert it into nitrogen – a vital plant food component.

4: Plant Nourishment

We use this nutrient dense water to irrigate and fertilize our greenhouse plant beds.

5: Back to the Beginning

We then recycle the used liquid back to the fish tanks as pH-neutral water, where the cycle begins anew.

6: Fully Sustainable

The entire process is a self-contained ecosystem that uses less than 10% of the water and less than 60% of the land needed by conventional farming.
