Denver's cottage food act allows residents to product food for sale in their communities. We worked with a home owner in Denver to build a 13' x 22' aquaponic greenhouse in his backyard to run as a small hobby farm business. This presentation will review what the owner's goals and objectives were and then focus on how the aquaponic system was designed, it's layout, energy consumption, fish and plant production, and how his small farm business is expected to perform financially. In addition, we will discuss the important elements that influence small farm profitability.
