We have been idle at the new Schmidt Brewery farm location while waiting for our building permit. The good news... we received the building permit last Tuesday, December 1! The excitement and energy levels are high, and the next phase is finally starting! With a building permit in hand, we can proceed with the plans that have taken months of designing and tweaking and designing and, well... tweaking.
At Urban Organics, we are not only building another farm, but we are trying to build the emerging aquaponic industry. We are striving to provide a fresh, local resource for sustainable protein and produce. As stated in a recent article from Food Fanatics, "Within a decade, the majority of seafood will come not from open waters but from fish farms." As we have experienced ourselves, the demand is high, and people want to know where the food they eat is coming from. See more at - http://www.foodfanatics.com/food/future-land-raised-seafood.
