How Our Aquaponics
System Works

Fat Beet Farm’s Aquaponic system grows a variety of gorgeous lettuces without any chemical fertilizers. We raise fish, filter out their waste, and convert it into nutrients that are easily absorbed by the lettuce roots. In addition to sustainably providing nutrients to the plants, we only use rainwater in our fish tanks and grow beds.

In our 3,000 sq. ft. grow house, we can harvest up to 2,200 heads of lettuce per week. For this reason, we believe that aquaponics is a super-efficient solution to many of Florida’s farming challenges.
