  1. Thank you for taking the time to put this information together it is very interesting. I am not looking for a full time job in AP and that is the reality. I run a business now and only looked at this property for the space and shop building with the house. The AP facility just happens to be there and is of zero value to me unless I can either sell it or lease it to someone who would like to run it. Right now I am seeing it as a liability that needs to be ran or removed and I am not sure I want to do that. The price of the property with the house giving no value to the AP facility is a little high but it has been on the market for a long time and is being sold as an estate I could make an offer that makes sense to me. Your valuable information about running it as a business makes me realize how time consuming a venture this would be and I have no experience as a farmer or AP at all. I believe I could learn but I am almost 60 and getting ready to retire and travel I don't see anyway to do that with this operating in my back yard unless someone else is running it.
  2. I sent you a message with some links.
  3. I believe most of all the equipment is on site but the %75 is what is done already but not knowing anything about it it is hard to tell. All the long tanks are in and plumbed the 4 big round fish tanks are in and plumbed. There are a bunch of pumps and valves in with all the piping. 2 - 200 Amp main panels are in I don't think the pumps are wired yet but I have done electric work for over 30 years so I would do that. There are many other tanks I am not sure what there function is. This is all built with commercial tanks no IBC totes. Here is a picture I copied off the real estate site. The tanks in the background I am not sure what they are for what you can't see is the 4 big fish tanks and another big tank burred near the fish tanks. There is a shop building full of more equipment to finish it. I am not sure if the picture is view-able or not. My location is near a very large population within 20 miles of Portland, OR. I don't think selling the produce would be hard I am not sure what the demand is for farm raised fish since we have access to a lot of wild fish in the Pacific Northwest. Green house picture.webp
  4. I am looking at a property to purchase that has a very large Aquaponics facility that is %75 complete all the equipment is new never used. It looks like a first class operation but i know very little about aquaponics. It looks to be about 96' x 50' aproximately. All the beds are in and many of the pumps tanks and plumbing is in this is a commercial type setup. How hard is it to learn about aquaponic farming and how time intensive is the operation from what I have seen on youtube it looks pretty time consuming? Is there a profit to be made doing this? I am looking at the property to buy because of the land but I am not sure if I want to try aquaponics or just sell off the equipment. I was told by the realestate agent selling the property the man had $300,000.00 invested but he passed away before the project was complete. Is there a market for the equipment? Would a person be able to lease it to someone else to run? I am not sure what I would do if I bought this land. Sorry for all the dumb questions.
