Improving Our Environment

Why treat your pond with chemicals that can be harmful when you can use a holistic approach and have multiple benefits.  You can also raise your own tilapia at home, in a small farm or even large farm? Using farm raised fish you not only provides a protein source but can provide using aquaponics a valued crop in a small footprint.

Why We Do What We Do

I get asked all the time why I would want to raise fish?  It comes down to this, I am somewhat of a health nut and I am always looking for a better quality protein source from an all natural clean environment.

Triple B Tilapia

I was raised on a farm helping my father and grandfather with cattle and swine besides the normal harvests of corn and soybeans. Come on what else is there in Indiana besides corn?  But seriously I never thought my journey would ever return me to farming.  After we got out of the family business, farming, back in the early 80’s, I knew God had other plans, I ventured into the construction business for many years before branching out into the power sports industry. While working within this industry I finished my teaching degree and started teaching at the local high school.  So when this opportunity was introduced to me by a friend, James, who had spent some time working with farming grown fish (Tilapia, Blue Catfish, and Trout), I had already had many years within successful businesses to see the potential. If I was willing to do the work and if it was ran correctly, of course, it had the makings of something I had never imagined, starting a fish farming business.

My friend knew I had the entrepreneur spirit and the facilities for this to work so I went to work on getting educated.  I spent over a year learning, studying, and planning even before any steps were taken to start the building remodel process.  This allowed me to get the education I needed to avoid many of the pitfalls so may encounter when starting an aquaculture business.  I had a lot of help from James, along with the help from Mike and Jan Sipe who have spent a life time growing and developing the best growing breeders.  So now I had the education and experience backing me to make this dream a reality.

We decided to build our business in stages so with our first phase we focused on a hatchery and building up stock for sales within live markets (wholesale) and retail. Our fish capacity was 5K lbs on the nursery side with smaller grow out tanks.  Our second phase was an additional capacity of 8K lbs grow out system which is located inside our existing facility.

I can only guarantee to provide you with the best quality healthy tilapia around. You are always welcome to take a tour, upon appointments only, and see for yourself how our farm works.  We have fish in different seasons of the year so some parts of the year we do not have fish.  Tilapia is our Spring harvest with our cold water fish being in the Fall.

Don't underestimate the power of tilapia to keep your pond clean of algae. Why use costly and harmful chemicals when you can save tons of time by letting nature work her wonders.
