Four String Farm is pleased to announce our partnership with CC Aquaponics. Starting in January, we will include the fresh produce of CC Aquaponics (CCAP) in our farm share program.

CCAP is a new venture by Casey Williams and Lawrence Palreiro. They have worked four years to launch this project. Casey and Lawrence are committed to growing produce without the use of chemicals and they expect to receive organic certification.

We will continue to sell our own produce through the farm share. Our partnership with CCAP allows us to increase the volume and diversity of our vegetables, herbs, fruit, and flowers. Casey and I will coordinate our seasonal plantings to achieve the greatest variety of heirloom produce.

Our partnership will also help us maintain a continual and balanced supply of your favorite fruit and vegetables throughout the year. The challenges of nature–drought, flood, pests, and other surprises—will impact CCAP differently than our farm. By working together, we can ensure a greater supply of produce early and late in the season and have less likelihood of gaps in production.

In aquaponics, the nutrient-rich water from farmed fish tanks is circulated to grow plants hydroponically on rafts or in shale material. The plants filter and cleanse the water, which is circulated back to the fish tanks. “Aquaponics is one of the most sustainable methods of food production,” Casey said.

Kayla and I have been so impressed with Casey’s commitment to his customers, his passion for the business, and the way he has invested himself to master the art of farming. We believe our alignment with CC Aquaponics will be a great benefit for our customers.

We will share more information soon about CC Aquaponics and the benefits of this partnership to the community.

    • Thank you so much Sandra! We hope this partnership with CC Aquaponics allows us to grow to take care of many more customers. We will help and support Casey and Lawrence in growing their business also, to offer wonderful produce to as many people as possible. Thank you for your kind words! All the best to you!

  1. This seems like a wise move. The farmers that I buy from at the Nassau Bay Farmers’ Market have slowly been increasing the number of hoop houses on their property, as well as other means of extending the growing season. Consequently, they’ve been able to continue providing such crops as tomatoes when everyone else has declared them gone for the season.

    I presume cut ants can’t take out the fish?!

    • Yes! The fish, if nothing else, are safe from cut ants!

      We have been following Casey Williams for several years and looking forward to working with him. I will let you know how everything goes; we are very hopeful. All the best to you!
