Who we are

Welcome to Bioaqua farm! You may have seen us on TV (BBC2 Harvest, Escape to the Country, Jamie & Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast 2018) showing off our wonderful aquaponics farm, or heard about how we’re leading the way in aquaponics across the U.K and Europe. Well, however you found us, we’re happy to have you here!

If you’ve got time, we’d like to give you a taste of what we’re all about. Here goes…

We are Antonio Paladino and Amanda Heron, leaders in organic and sustainable farming, expert educators of aquaponics, committed to teaching a new wave of growers and inspiring healthy, mindful eating practices to create positive change for people and planet.

We farm Rainbow Trout andveggiesin the most sustainable and ethical way. Powered by sunshine and without the use of chemicals or pesticides. We’ve set up a naturally organic ecosystem, where happy fish create nutrient-rich water to feed the plants and the plants in return provide clean water for the fish. To help them along, bees pollinate the plants and worms break everything down, with any waste composted for reuse on our fruit orchard, just as nature intended.

It’s this special ‘bio-symbiotic’ relationship that is the inspiration for our name, Bioaquafarm.

We teach aquaponics to share our knowledge and to inspire a positive change in farming worldwide. Since 2014, we’ve taught over 600 students from over 32 countries and are regarded among industry experts as ‘the best aquaponics system in the UK by a mile’. Through our courses and consultancy, we are leading the way in aquaponics education and inspiring a generation of growers to transform farming for good.

We make gourmet dishes for foodies who share our commitment to eating responsibly and in a mindful way. Whether it’s a corporate event, wedding, gala or other special occasions we have a menu that is guaranteed to surprise and delight. Prepared by Antonio Paladino, co-founder of Bioaquafarm, fisherman and Italian master chef, it’s our produce sampled at it’s very best. A favourite of top celebrities and even members of the Royal family!
