Your Health

Healthy produce & proteins grown in your aquaponics system will provide you with an increase in mental health & physical energy and will also help with the control of diabetes and obesity. Your health should come first and that’s why here at Rusty Acres Organics we use no pesticides, herbicides or salt based fertilizers in the production of our vegetables & greens.

Your Family

The family that farms aquaponics together is a family that grows together. Farming with aquaponics will provide your family with not only leafy greens and proteins but a better understanding of how other families work together, in nature, for a sustainable future.

Community Produce from Aquaponics

Your Community

How can aquaponics benefit our communities? By involvement. Being involved with your friends, family and neighbours to grow nutritious proteins and leafy greens will create a sustainable future for your communities. As a community, you can learn the benefits of water conservation and how you can grow with less of an environmental impact insuring a brighter future for all.

Your Country

Learning how to grow indoors your own produce and proteins with aquaponics will allow you to avoid the peril of Mother Nature. Every location has its challenge for every farmer, and these challenges increase every year because of climate change. Ask yourself, is it better to grow indoors 365 days a year and no longer worry about extreme weather conditions? Aquaponics could be the answer in your country.

Save the Planet Aquaponics

Your Planet

Aquaponics isn’t the only answer to save our planet from the path we have put it on, but it is a good solution for a sustainable future. Why you ask? Aquaponics can grow 10 times the food with only 10% of the water consumption compared to standard agricultural practices. No pesticides harming beneficial insects, no salt based fertilizers to pollute our water ways. Aquaponics could answer the question “How do we save our waterways and oceans from agricultural pollution and still feed the world?

Economy - Jars of Coins & Leaf

Your Economy

The start of any successful aquaponics operation will have a positive effect on your local economy. Your local region will benefit from the harvest to the distribution of your produce and proteins creating jobs and a strong social fabric that can sustain your future.


Always educating, always learning, but most of all, always growing.
