Aquaponics Systems for Sale
– by Colle and Phyllis Davis
If you’re interested in owning your own aquaponics system, your first goal is to select the size aquaponics system you’d like to operate for your own unique purposes. We always suggest to our customers that they learn how to successfully operate an aquaponics system and if it fits their needs THEN expand to multiple aquaponics modules (the sky’s the limit).
- Are you interested in a small backyard system so you can ‘get your hands wet’ and learn how to operate an aquaponics system?
- Would you like a few aquaponics modules so you can begin to sell the food you grow and then expand?
- Or, are you interested in the commercial side of aquaponics that raises and sells vegetables and fish to local markets in your area? You can begin at the top and install multi-acre commercial systems!
The future of food production involves growing food in a controlled-environment greenhouse. By growing food in greenhouses, growers are no longer dependent on weather conditions (think climate change), and they can grow food year round, in any climate, and the grower doesn’t need to use harsh chemicals or pesticides to protect their plants.
Which aquaponics systems for sale are you interested in owning?
There are literally thousands of websites that can show you how to set up a small workable open-source aquaponics system for free. For many people who are not able to buy our systems, we suggest you start there and we also suggest you lurk around forums to ask and answers questions.
Colle Davis’ story: A simple aquarium and a dish pan with two inches of rough sand in the bottom of the dish pan were the originating ideas for the original Portable Farms™ Aquaponics Systems that all began at University of California at Davis back in 1970.

For a very small backyard Portable Farm, the cost is approximately $4,000 to $4,500 and the system will feed a family of four all of their surface vegetables and a few fish per month, year round, in any climate, forever. This cost is not affordable enough to be practical in some people’s mind, but at this level of investment it is certainly doable and it will eventually pay itself off. This amount includes the Aquaponics University Portable Farms Aquaponics Systems Course© plus, it also includes the cost of installing a small greenhouse to protect the system, the materials to build the Grow Tray and a correctly sized Fish Tank to put it all together. This amount of money will build a small, single module tray system that will be operational year round and provide vegetables and fish to your family on a regular basis.
