We’re raising tilapia so your family can enjoy the health benefits of fresh fish without owning a pole. That’s right, even if you’ve never fished a day, you can benefit from sustainable seafood raised in clear mountain water, a stone’s throw from your dinner table!
An affordable green meal!
These hormone-free and responsibly farmed fish have never tried to pull oxygen out of an oily ocean. No coral reef damage occurs during harvest, and the only shipping involved to deliver them to your table is the gas you use in transport, yet our prices are the same as you’d pay for factory farmed tilapia at the butcher counter. We could charge more, but we chaff at the thought of elitist food. Good quality food is for everyone. Get the details here.

It’s snowing. Hard. And while I’ll get in a little exercise by hand clearing walkways and the driveway, mostly I’ll be inside today and tomorrow while Mother Nature blesses us with my most favorite type of precipitation.
I’ll spend the time resealing the 50 gallon tilapia breeding tank, which, inexplicably, developed a leak sometime after the week-long leak test we conducted in the greenhouse and the subsequent moving of the tank into the breezeway. Not to worry, it was a minor flood, and I guess I should have just resealed this secondhand tank in the first place.
Seeing as we are also forecast -7F tomorrow night, I’ll spend some time baking whole wheat sourdough bread, the last of last fall’s baking pumpkins and with that pumpkin-raisin scones. Good food and a warm kitchen, who could ask for anything more?
