2017 Tilapia Pond Stocking - Advance Orders for $5/lb

We are now taking advance orders for the 2017 pond stocking season, and are offering Blue Tilapia broodstock for just $5 per pound.  When you advance order, we both win:  you pay a much lower price and assure yourself of being at the front of the line for the biggest stockers, and we get capital to help expand our farming operation for next season.

If you'd like to place an advance order, use the tables below.  The first table covers the Blue Tilapia, the second table covers delivery charges.  You'll need to use both tables if you want your fish delivered.

Blue Tilapia Pond Stocking - delivering large broodstock

Here's a short video showing some of our large adult Blue Tilapia broodstock. We're sold out of big ones like these for the rest of the 2016 season; the remaining fish are in the 6-8" range.

Blue Tilapia Pond Stocking 2016 - update

Blue Tilapia pond stocking for the 2016 season will begin the week of April 25th.  We will contact each individual customer during the 3rd week of April to arrange specific delivery dates and times. 

We will have 2 crops of stockers this year, one in late April and one in early June.   The late April crop is now sold out, but you can still place an order to reserve fish from the early June crop.  Blue Tilapia can make up ground in a hurry and clear up a pond covered in algae in just a few weeks, so June isn't too late; that would still give you 4 good months of clear water.

If you are interested in advance ordering for 2017, you can do so now for just $5 per pound.  When you advance order, we both win:  you pay a much lower price and assure yourself of being at the front of the line for the biggest stockers, and we get capital to help expand our farming operation for next season.  If you'd like to place an advance order, please contact us.

Fish House update


Below are a few pics from the construction of our pit-style Fish House. This time, instead of doing all of the digging by hand with a shovel and wheelbarrow as I had done with my pond and other tunnels, I rented a Bobcat. After the 1st day, I thought, "Eh, that's enough help, I'll just do the rest by hand"--which might have been an okay idea if I hadn't then decided to keep digging and make it twice as big as I had intended when I started.

Here's what the trench looked like last Fall 2015 after using the Bobcat on the first day:


Then after some hand-digging:

And after more hand-digging...
Special thanks to my nephew and Dad :)


Here it is newly stocked with bananas in spring 2015:


And here's what it looks like now:
