Raised right here in our aquaponics greenhouse, our tilapia live in fresh clean water and enjoy a high quality diet. When we serve it as Farmstead, many people ask if it’s walleye! Clean, healthy meat–a completely different experience from commercial tilapia. Processed in-house, packaged as two scaled fillets from the same fish. 0.4-0.6 lb. set of fillets (individual package weight vary).

Aquaponics: Biodynamic, Healthy Foods All Year Round
Nestled beside our Farmstead Creamery (and built the same year, 2012) is our farm’s aquaponics greenhouse. Aquaponics is a unique, symbiotic relationship between fish, beneficial bacteria, and crop plants, which allows our farm to grow food all year. Our tilapia fish enjoy constantly-flowing fresh waters cleaned by the roots of the plants, and the plants utilize the nutrient rich water from the fish to grow and flourish. The greenhouse environment naturally shelters the delicate crops we grow from storms, pests, predators, and pathogens, creating succulent, delicious, and tender produce. This greenhouse has revolutionized our ability to offer fresh, local, and biosecure greens and herbs throughout the year, as well as delicious and clean fillets of fish. Enjoy the bounty all year right here!
