The fish that create our organic fertilizer are tilapia, a freshwater white fish that has become incredibly popular in recent years. Mild in flavor and flaky in texture, tilapia is fantastic in fish tacos and great on the grill.
Contrary to what you may have heard in the past, tilapia is a delicious source of lean protein and Omega 3’s. A 3.5 ounce portion of tilapia has 26 grams of protein and just 126 calories! Best of all, because they are raised in a controlled environment, our tilapia are completely free of the mercury and plastics that wild caught fish are becoming increasingly exposed to from pollution in our lakes, rivers and oceans.
We harvest adult tilapia each week and ship them to our friends at Harbor Fish Market in Portland, one of the most iconic fish stores in Maine. Look for an exciting announcement from us soon about where you can find fresh tilapia fillets near you!
“I recently purchased some of your Bibb lettuce at my local Whole Foods store. I had forgotten about it in my fridge for what must have been over a week. I can’t believe how fresh it still was, It was like I bought it that morning! Can’t wait to try out the baby romaine next!” – Kyle (Boston, MA)
