Fish poop alone is NOT enough.

Stop adding chemicals to your aquaponics system and use a sprinkle of mineral rock dust instead! The fish LOVE IT.

portable-farms-fish-dont-fart

FF (Fish Friendly) Mineral Rock Dust provides MORE blossoms and IMPROVED flavor for all blooming plants and enhances the SIZE and flavor of all your green plants.

Lack of sufficient trace elements in fish waste is one of the key reasons aquaponics has been slow to commercialize. UNTIL NOW. Portable Farms® Announces FF (Fish Friendly) Mineral Rock Dust for use in your aquaponics or hydroponics systems for healthier and better TASTING greens and blooming plants.

  Fish waste alone does NOT produce ENOUGH iron, magnesium, calcium and potassium to raise blooming plants that continually produce ongoing blossoms for growing certain varieties of blooming plants in aquaponics. Portable Farms® now offers a chemical free, 100% natural solution that safely adds iron, magnesium, calcium and potassium and other trace elements to your system for successful growing in your aquaponics or hydroponic system and it’s FISH SAFE.  For more information about FF Mineral Rock Dust and Q & A’s: CLICK HERETo order FF Mineral Rock Dust ($29.95 per five pounds plus shipping): CLICK HERE.

  1. mike bartelt

    Is this suitable for Thailand? Here I am asking about the climate for working aquaponics and shipping the materials for building the systems?

    1. portfarm4

      Mike,

      Please read the mother site at portablefarms.com for a better explanation of the climatic requirements. The PFAS can be build and operated successfully anywhere in the world because it requires being housed in a climatically adapted structure. We have opened our new Research and Development Center in Florida to address using the PFAS in the tropics where much less concern is directed at the weather and more to insect control and rain control.

      The ‘materials’ that are shipped, the PFAS Kits, come in a box that is 30cm x 30cm x 20cm and 6.5 kilos. The rest of the materials to build the installations are available locally everywhere in the world and there is no reason to ship things like lumber, pipes, tanks and plastic if it is available locally.

      You will need to take the AU Course first to have a better understanding of the technology and how to adjust the installation to the local conditions.

    iminterested to learn , i live in nj, how do i get started? We are 5 people in the family. Im not a handy woman.

    1. portfarm4

      Julia,

      Thank you for your inquiry into how to get stated in New Jersey. To do this right you will need to hire someone to build the entire system and use the PFAS Kit Option 2 to make it work. Start by signing up to take the course and you will have a much better idea of what is involved and more importantly you will know how to operate the Unit when in is finished and operational.

      We look forward to your order.

      Colle Davis, Director

  3. vanessa harrison

    I am ready to enrolled in aquaponics U and receive my portable farm system for free. What is the next step? Vanessa harrison

    1. portfarm4

      Venessa,

      Please see the Commercial Aquaponics Course page for complete details. You can pay with PayPal, debit or credit card or wire transfer. Once we receive the payment, you can begin to take the Certification Course and upon completion you will receive the PFAS Kit Option 2 after paying the small shipping charge. It’s that simple.

      We look forward to your order.

      Colle Davis, Director

  4. Debra Schott

    I’d like to know if there are any local Aquaponic farmers/growers in my area?
    I live in the Kansas City, Missouri area.

    I’m very interested in making a bit larger system than the patio set up, what size would you recommend to feed a family or group of 12? Would this be year round? Do you need a true ‘greenhouse’? Thanks, Debra

    1. portfarm4

      Debra,

      Currently there are no PFAS Units available for tours in your area. An odd phenomena happens with a very high percentage of Portable Farms customers, they do not want us to let anyone know they have one in their backyard. You could be the first in your area and even charge for tours as do our California locations.

      The guideline for sizing a system is that 25 sg ft of grow space will feed an adult year round most of their vegetables and two serving of four ounces of fish per week. So for 12 adults you will need 300 sq ft of grow space. Two modules will work very well in a greenhouse that is approximately 16 x 40 ft. The Grow Trays are normally 4 to 5 ft wide so two tray 30 to 38 ft long will serve your family. You do need to have the system in a ‘true’ greenhouse or as we call them ‘a climatically adapted structure’. With your system inside you would have production on a year around basis.

      I trust this addresses your questions.
      Sincerely,
      Colle Davis, Director, Aquaponics University.

  5. Mullins Farms

    Looks like a great set of classes. Going to look into taking it.

      If you have any questions about the class or the local area, please contact me for more information!

  6. Rudi Londt

    I am interested in aquaponics and like to add this to my greenhouse of 20X54 Feet.
    Might as well get certified at the same time.

    1. portfarm4

      Rudi,

      Thank you for your interest in aquaponics from Aquaponics University. You can sign up either online HERE or we can take your order for the training by email or over the phone.

      The PFAS has a modular design and each module can support a Grow Tray of 200 sq ft of grow space. Each Module normally has a Grow Tray Table 5′ wide and up to 40′ long and with the aisle it takes up 7.5′ plus you need an aisle of 2.5′ on the last side. So a 20′ wide space can contain two modules very easily OR
      you can make the Grow Trays Tables slightly narrower, and place three Modules in that 20 x 54 ft space. If you have three Grow Trays that are 4 x 46 you will than have 552 sq ft of Grow Space instead of 400 sq ft in your greenhouse.

      Let me know which is better for you and I’ll work with you to really maximize the use of your greenhouse.

      We look forward to seeing you at the training and your order.

      Talk soon.

      Sincerely,
      Colle Davis, Director Aquaponics University

  7. Glenn Martinez

    We have many students asking for educational programs, Can you tell us the cost and particulars on the program. Most are interested in a “certificate program”.
    Glenn

    1. portfarm4

      Glenn,

      Forgive the delay in responding. You actually were on our new site before we had it finished.

      You can now get all the particulars by looking under the specific programs on the navbar. The descriptions and prices for each one is listed.

      Thanks for your interest.
