Old World AquaFarmTM system allows the average homeowner to grow their own food in the backyard
Old World AquaFarmTM has developed a climate controlled self cleaning system which allows the average homeowner to grow their own food in the backyard. The system is portable. By adding new techniques the system can grow root vegetables such as potatoes, beets, onions, turnips, and any other food you can grow in a traditional garden. The system also can grow fish, shrimp. and crabs at the same time. We re-use the same water over and over again. No chemicals, weeding, filter cleaning, or fertilizer is required. Imagine an hour a day in your own backyard grocery store. You can even grow peanuts. We are the only AquaFarm System that can grow both above and below ground vegetables, trees, fruits, etc. The system can grow ten times the food, in one tenth of the water. 30-50 pounds of aquatic animals in 500 gallons of water
