About The Producer

Ouroboros Farms
Half Moon bay
Ouroboros Farms is a commercial Aquaponics Farm in Half Moon Bay and Pescadero. Aquaponics is the combination of Aquaculture (the raising of fish) and Hydroponics (growing plants in water). We feed our fish Organic Fish Food which becomes nutrients for the plants. This method of food production has several advantages. Because both nutrients and water are always available to the plants, they grow up to 30% faster, can be planted up to 10x more densely, and use only 5-10% of the water required of a similar sized soil farm. In other words, we can grow upwards of 20 times as much produce with the same amount of water! Read more
