Green River Greenhouse, LLC.

Green River Greenhouse, LLC. (GRG) is an unconventional Re-circulating Aquaculture System (RAS) known as Aquaponics. The most significant difference between our system and the traditional RAS is that we have replaced the  bio-filter component with hydroponic grow tanks that not only work to filter the water for the fish, but also provide an optimal environment for the growth of produce. We currently have four of these grow tanks/raceways spanning approximately 138 feet in length, between 14-16 feet in width, with a depth of right around 16 inches. In these raceways GRG grows various types of organic produce. The nutrient enriched habitat for these plants is provided by our large tilapia culture that is divided between the system’s pair of 35,000 gallon fiberglass tanks.

OUR MISSION:

Our mission here at Green River Greenhouse, LLC. (GRG) is to adhere to all Good Agricultural Practices (GAP), follow all regulations set forth by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI), and by our organic certification firm (EcoCert), in an effort to provide our customers with 100% organic produce that contains an unforgettable and delicious flavor. GRG works equally as hard, and follows many of these same guidelines when raising our fish for market sale, additional farming, or otherwise. We are passionately dedicated to our customers, and to the sustainable agriculture and organic farming community.

 Organic_editedWHAT IS ORGANIC?

Organic agriculture is an ecological production management system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity. It is based on minimal use of off-farm inputs and on management practices that restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony.

Organic agriculture produces products using methods that preserve the environment and avoid most synthetic materials, such as pesticides and antibiotics.

Organic farmers, ranchers, and food processors follow a defined set of standards to produce organic food and fiber.

Only farms that go through the certification process of their country or state can label their food organic or certified organic. 100-percent-certified-organic-logo

Some farmers choose to forgo the certification on account of cost. Green River Greenhouse finds the cost is well worth the ability to ensure its customers a healthy product that is as advertised.
