According to the USDA, we are considered an"Exempt Operation". According to the rules set forth by the USDA, any Operation grossing less than $5,000 a year from Organic products does not have to be certified. In fact, we fall into this category. We must follow all USDA organic production requirements in order to represent our products as organic, which we do. For more information regarding our growing practices, send all inquiries via this link. We'll be happy to answer any questions that you might have.
We are currently studying the feasibility of becoming a USDA Certified Organic Operation and will keep you updated as to our research via our blog The Urban Way. If and when we do become certified, we will be using the official USDA Organic label throughout our website and on all of our labeling.
According to Wikipedia, Aquaponics is a food production system that combines conventional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. In normal aquaculture, excretions from the animals being raised can accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity. In an aquaponic system, water from an aquaculture system is fed to a hydroponic system where the by-products are broken down by nitrification bacteria into nitrates and nitrites, which are utilized by the plants as nutrients. The water is then recirculated back to the aquaculture system.
