2017 Tour Dates
- April 2
- May 7
Visit the Green Acre farm and get a wonderful introduction to aquaponic farming and home or hobby aquaponics. We’ve been farming for six years and love to share about aquaponics and why we think it is the best way to grow clean and completely organic food.
Tours generally last about an hour to an hour and half and we give a broad overview of our farm systems, designs and theory. Depending on the time of year and available crops, some produce may be available for purchase. Also sign up for a one day backyard and basics class and receive a discount! These tours fill up fast and we can only accommodate those who reserve a spot in advance, so be sure to sign up early!
This is not a rain or shine event. If there is any lightning in the area, the tour will be cancelled. Unfortunately this may occur without much notice, however it is not safe to be in the greenhouse or around the water filled systems with a threat of lightning in the area. We will attempt to contact you in the event of a cancellation as soon as is possible.
If you would like some one on one time with a Green Acre farmer, consider scheduling a private visit. Private tours are available by appointment only on Wednesdays and Thursday and are for one hour and are $95 for up to four guests and $20 for each person over four. While these tours do allow for more specific questions than what can be addressed at a group tour, a private tour includes an overview of our farm and systems. For an education on aquaponic farming and to learn how to build, operate and manage an aquaponic farm business, consider our comprehensive class, The Aquaponic Farming Course.
Complete a Contact Us form to request a private tour and to schedule a time. Allow at least one week for scheduling. We generally cannot accommodate next day tours.
Once a tentative tour date and time has been selected, you will receive a PayPal invoice to pay for the tour fee. Payment must be received at least 48 hours in advance to secure the tour. Tours are not confirmed until payment is received and directions to the farm will be forwarded at that time. There are no refunds for private tours, private tours are cannot be rescheduled and tours will start at the scheduled time.
Contact us through our website to set up an appointment for a private tour.
