Welcome to Bioaqua Farm
The biggest aquaponic trout farm in Europe - page 4
MORE fresh, local, tasty veg and fish, LESS impact on the planet
We are the first and biggest integrated aquaponic trout farm in Europe so far, growing vegetables and rearing Rainbow Trout in the most sustainable and ethical way in a bio-symbiotic system, with bees to pollinate the plants and worms to sustain the cycle of the system. We don’t use any chemicals or pesticides, so it’s naturally an organic system. As seen on BBC2 Harvest episode 3 & Terry & Masons Great British Food Trip, episode 8. Leading the way in Aquaponics UK, with unrivalled aquaponic courses for students globally.
So what is Aquaponics?
Aquaponics is the combined culture of fish and plants in recirculating systems. Nutrients generated by the fish waste (manure) are absorbed by plants cultured in water. Fish provide most of the nutrients required for plant nutrition. As the aquaculture effluent flows through the cultured plant component of the recirculating system, fish waste metabolites are removed by nitrification and direct uptake by plants, thereby treating the water, which flows back to the fish rearing component for reuse. This system uses up to 95% LESS water than traditional horticulture farming.
A fantastic night at Yeo Valley HQ for the Food Awards last Monday 25th Jan. Antonio created a unique and fresh tasting canapé of freshly picked ingredients only hours before the event, now that’s not something you will normally find in food catering! A Watercress wrap filled with French Sorrel Yeo Valley organic crème fraiche garnished with Rock Samphire, which many avid foragers of rock samphire commented on how big the leaves are and tender the bite compared to the wild one they have picked, Adrian Boots expert forager said its the most pungent and intense flavour of all rock samphire he has tried!
Well it’s been a great way to start the year, with many more exciting things in planning for the year ahead, stay tuned, we will be back in Yeo Valley for the YEOpen Day in late April.
