Traders Hill Farm Aquaponics efficiently combines aquaculture and hydroponics.
Tilapia drive our process, living and swimming in spacious, environment controlled water tanks.
Through natural biological excretions, they enrich the water with a host of beneficial bacteria.
Using our proprietary process, we filter the bacteria and convert it into nitrogen – a vital plant food component.
We use this nutrient dense water to irrigate and fertilize our greenhouse plant beds.
We then recycle the used liquid back to the fish tanks as pH-neutral water, where the cycle begins anew.
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.
