South River Aquaponics

South River Aquaponics is an organic sustainable indoor farm and producer of organic fertilizers and an organic cloning gel. We are based out of Montrose, Colorado in a 14,040 square foot greenhouse facility utilizing aquaponics as our main food production system. Aquaponics is a way of combining aquaculture (raising fish in tanks) and hydroponics (growing plants in water) into one symbiotic system. South River Aquaponics raises Barramundi (Asian Sea Bass) in the fish tanks, which are connected, via filtration tanks, to our hydroponic tanks. In these raft tanks we grow fresh lettuces and herbs whose nutrient source comes from the fish! It is a completely organic process! South River Aquaponics has also developed vertical grow towers designed for Garlic, Shallots and Onion production. Each of our 24 vertical grow towers is able to grow roughly 224 plants with Green Onions also growing on the tops of each tower! Our state of the art facility is also home to a 20 foot by 40 foot Mushroom Den where we will focus on Shiitake & Maitake mushrooms as well as other gourmet varieties.
