Sustainable Farm Supply is our complimentary company to Sand Creek Farm. We offer Sustainable Farm Supplies that we believe to be the best tool for the job along with construction and operations manuals that we highly recommend for a profitable Aquaponic Facility. We own and operate, Sand Creek Farm in Cameron, TX, www.sandcreekfarm.net, and have 3 of the largest profitable Commercial Aquaponic Facilities in the state. We have been operational and selling food from our Aquaponics since Oct. 2012. We can teach / train / mentor you in a successful Aquaponic venture from construction to production. We design excellent greenhouses / hoop houses of any length. Contact Sustainable Farm Supply with questions, email@example.com; speak with owner Ben Godfrey.
Here are some youtube links for you to view prior to making a decision about purchasing one of the recommended Aquaponic manuals. Purchasing this aquaponic manual saved us about $10,000 per facility and gave us lifetime support from creator of the system, Tim Mann of Friendly Aquaponics based in Hawaii. We also offer micro system manuals for those that want to start out with a smaller system. Check out our Sustainable Farm Supply website www.sustainablefarmsupply.net
