Welcome to Blackbird Farm

Growing Kindness Naturally

Aquaponic Produce and Family Farm

Our primary system is Deep Water Culture Aquaponics
We feed the fish, they feed our plants, and our plants clean the water for the fish.
The result is nutrient dense – chemical free – delicious produce for you.
Aquaponics is an innovation on the organic approach. The lettuce we produce is higher in vitamins, uses 92% less water than traditional row cropping, and allows us to produce all year long.
Blackbird Farm was founded at the height of the pandemic when my husband and I were desperate to reimagine broken food systems and supply chains. We wanted to join the community to change that and continue to look for ways to reduce the time and effort it takes to get you fresh food, while reducing costs and carbon footprints. The farm is currently open for visits and tours by appointment only, and our weekly After Market Days . Interested in News about our CSA or Flower Subscriptions? Please consider signing up for emails to learn more about the farm and what we have going on.

The Lettuce

We grow a variety of butter, sweet crisp, as well as mini romaine. The rafts are suited for smaller leafy greens such as Bibb types. We have trialed everything, but stick to lettuce solely in aquaponics. During summer when plants stress due to high heat we can keep them at optimum growing temps and provide lettuce at times when it is not available elsewhere.
There is a formula and balance to what we do inside the greenhouse. We don’t use pesticides or chemical bug control methods.

The Fish

We have Tilapia, Channel Catfish, and Freshwater Prawns.
They live in two 500-gallon tanks and are currently growing bigger every day. Having them separated allows us to monitor their performance and health.
Tilapia are considered an invasive species here in Georgia and can not go “outside”. All of our systems are sealed, no water leaves, so no fish eggs can either.
