River City Aquaponics in Shelbyville, KY is located in Shelby County on the outskirts of Louisville, KY. In the coming year, we are constructing a 6640sq. ft. greenhouse and will begin year-round production of tilapia and leafy greens. River City Aquaponics is committed to being a regional leader in aquaponics with a goal of becoming the preferred source for healthy, sustainable, locally-grown food.
We invite you to join us on our journey to getting River City Aquaponics off the ground! Check out our blog frequently and like us on facebook to follow our video blog which will document the facility construction and show the system design and implementation. We think you will find this process incredibly interesting and by the time we are done you will truly be able to say you "Know your food!"
Aquaponics is a technology that blends aquaculture (growing fish) and hydroponics (growing plants in water) to grow chemical-free produce & fish in a soil-less system. That's right, no dirt! By removing dirt from the equation, we also eliminate soil-borne pathogens in your food. Because fish are cold blooded, there's no risk of diseases such as Salmonella or E.coli. like you could find in poultry, beef or pork. We don't use chemical fertilizers, herbicides per pesticides for several reasons. They are not good for our fish, you or the flavor of our produce. You can truly taste the difference in something that is naturally grown! Acre for acre, an aquaponic system produces 8 times more food than traditional agriculture using only 1/6th of the water! This means Aquaponics is not only more sustainable it is good for our planet too!
