Things To Do in Coal Country
Visit Blue Acre Aquaponics
Blue Acre Aquaponics is an innovative way of farming that hopes to bring the next wave in farming for the West Virginia Coalfields. Though an ancient technique, Aquaponics, has been gaining momentum in the industrialized farming of the modern era due to its ability to have a year round supply of consistent product that is more fresh and healthier due to not needing pesticides as often as traditional agriculture. It also allows for the production of fish, in our case Tilapia, that can be purchased also. The facility is open to the general public M-F 8-4:30 PM for tours and plans to become an education center that can help teach others how to build and operate an aquaponics system as well.
