North Florida aquaponics grower expands operations

Traders Hill Farm LLC, a north Florida aquaponics operation, has expanded and plans to eventually supply lettuce to customers throughout the East Coast.

The Hilliard, Fla.-based company began as a science project but now supplies Jacksonville, Fla., area small- to mid-sized retailers and upscale restaurants and country clubs more than 135,000 pounds of romaine lettuce, kale, basil and swiss chard a year.

In late September, Traders Hill finished construction of a 40,000-square-foot greenhouse adjacent to its 10,000 -quare-foot operation.

By late November, it plans to begin harvesting from the new building which is expected to quadruple production capacity and allow it to ship to a larger customer base with new produce lines, said founder Angela TenBroeck.
