The Pomfret School is a high school in our region of the state. Led by a great teacher, Bill Martin, the students have been working on designing a new greenhouse that will be the center for their on-going aquaponics classes. The students focus on design, marketing, biology, finance, and farming. Many topics blended together for a perfect learning environment! I am proud to have a small part of their experience, but the real credit is for Mr. Martin. Please consider making a donation to help our future farmers! http://helios.pomfretschool.org/

Check out Tim's video.  He's mainly doing a lighting comparison, but you can see everything is grown with our GrowGrips!  Both raft and NFT.  He also has an earlier video explaining why he switch fro peat plugs to the GrowGrip.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADm0ATRHeTQ

Having engineers and the health department digging test holes for the new greenhouse project is quite expensive! We're still trying to raise funds to help offset some of these expenses with our 26'x144' aquaponic greenhouse. Please help us get out of this hole by joining our Patreon fundraising campaign. Thanks for your support! https://www.patreon.com/BigelowBrook

Sorry it’s been so quiet lately!  I’ve been battling a nasty cold for a few weeks and my voice has been barely working.  It makes it difficult to record any videos when I can hardly talk.  However, during my down time, I’ve been doing a lot of design work for the new greenhouse.  There’s some good stuff in the queue!

Don’t forget, if you want early access to our videos and premium content from our website, Patreon is just a few clicks away!  http://www.Patreon.com/BigelowBrook

Welcome to Bigelow Brook Farm.
