Our Successful And Profitable Students; 20 now and more every day
Note: we’ve been offering a polite “challenge” since 2010 asking anyone else in the commercial aquaponics field to come forward and demonstrate that they, or one of their students, is actually profitable growing vegetables in their aquaponics systems (NOT profitable selling overpriced aquaponics systems to innocent people who don’t know better, does not = the same thing!).
To the best of our knowledge, NO ONE has ever responded, nor published contact information for “their students” so you could contact them yourself to verify their claims, as we do here (please email us and let us know if someone has!). We think there’s a good chance we currently have the only profitable aquaponics technology on the planet. But you make up your own mind; email the folks in our list if you have questions:
You’re welcome to scroll down the page if you’re in a hurry to get to “the list” of our student’s aquaponic success stories, but if I’ve got your ear, let me tell you the best one first:
I got an email from “Jim” (just Jim, no last name) awhile back; the subject line was: “Yay! We just got organically certified!”. Now this was great news, but when I looked through my back emails, I couldn’t find Jim, nor could I find him in my database of purchasers.
This is someone who had never emailed me before, and who was now announcing that he’d gotten “something” certified organic. After ten minutes of fruitless searching, I finally emailed Jim back and said: “That’s great news! But who are you and what the heck did you get certified organic?”.
It turned out his wife had purchased our DIY Commercial Aquaponics package under her credit card and email, and they simply hadn’t ever needed to contact us for support; that is why we didn’t have Jim’s email in our information. They didn’t need us because they’d simply followed directions in the $995 package they’d purchased, and here’s the result:
They’d built a 4,000 square foot greenhouse with 2,800 square feet of aquaponics trough inside it, had gotten it USDA Organically Certified after operating commercially for eight months, then emailed us with the good news.
This has happened more than once; we often find out about our successful students when someone else emails us and says: “Did you hear about so-and-so? Are they one of your students?”. This is because our material is so accurate, comprehensive, and easy to understand that people are successful in duplicating what we’ve done simply by reading our manuals, watching our slideshows, and following directions.
One last thing: these people are all farmers running commercial aquaponics farms. They work all day on the farm, and are often busy with farm business in the evenings on their computers. Many have families too. So please, be polite when you contact them; they are not likely to respond right away as “aquaponics consultants” do, who have tanks and stuff to sell you. These people have nothing to sell you but vegetables and fish, and if they answer your questions they’re doing so out of the goodness of their hearts and their desire to help others, not because they’ll make any money off doing so.
Also, the numbers on the list don’t mean anything, this is just the order I wrote them down in. ‘Nuff said!
