Aquaponics is easier and more productive than organic gardening or traditional agriculture and uses 95% less water. Portable Farms® Aquaponics Systems also use less electricity and less labor than any other aquaponics system in the world.

“What will my installation cost me?”

The larger the aquaponics system you build, the better the investment it is because you’re growing more food and saving on food costs at your local market. It’s a true but sad fact that a very small backyard aquaponics system is not the best ‘financial investment,’ but you WILL have a year round supply of the freshest, best tasting and most nutritious food you can buy. Please note: IT’S THE GREENHOUSE THAT IS EXPENSIVE and NOT the aquaponics technology or building materials.
This 10′ x 16′ greenhouse is large enough to hold one 5′ x 12′ grow table capable of feeding two people table vegetables FOREVER. 
  • According to the Craftsman National Building Cost Estimator program, the pricing on a greenhouse measuring 12′ x 12′ would be around $3587, or $25 per square foot. By adding in all the other components for building a Portable Farms® Aquaponics System (training – with includes your Portable Farms Kit and other materials) the cost is about $35 per square foot.

    I am in Ghana, West Africa. If you do not ship Rock Dust and Worm Castings outside the US, how can I make my backyard portable farm work successfully?

      There are supplies of mineral rock dust everywhere in the world. Find one with NO nitrogen, aluminum or iron in it. The one we have available is the best we could find and by an odd coincidence the supplier was in our city.
