So, you may be wondering, what is aquaponic farming? Aquaponics is the combination of aquaculture (raising fish) and hydroponics (the soil-less growing of plants) that grows fish and plants together in one system.

In this type of system, there is virtually no waste. One of the biggest benefits of aquaponic farming is that produces fresh vegetables 365 days per year. Superior Fresh's state of the art class greenhouse allows them to grown consistent premium product year-round, which we know just does not happen otherwise in Wisconsin.
