Our career change took the form of us moving back from Canada to central Arizona with the intent of starting a commercial aquaponics business. We believe that this new business will give us the opportunity we were looking for to contribute more directly to our community and the surrounding area in which we live by creating long term and trusted partnership with all of our neighbors and business customers. After many years of cogitation about, research into, and a year and a half of construction we are finally starting to grow fish and produce in substantial amounts. These products will be available for sale to the public by late spring of 2014.
In addition to our business Mission Statement, Goals and Objectives it is our hope that our business will become a long-term, ongoing legacy, not just for our family but also for our community. That thru our example of utilizing a sustainable agricultural model to create a viable and successful business that future generation will realize the potential for and benefit of investing back into their communities. That doing so can be financially viable while providing a rewarding lifestyle.
