Nelson and Pade's Aquaponics Greenhouse

Nelson and Pade, Inc. is proud to display their Clear Flow Aquaponic Systems® in their 5,000 square foot aquaponic greenhouse in Montello, WI.   The greenhouse showcases state-of-the-art aquaponics and a diverse mix of crops.  The greenhouse itself uses energy-efficient natural ventilation and dual-layer covering, a wood stove for supplemental heating and dehumidification, a wood boiler for heating water and bio-security components, demonstrating a commercially viable yet environmentally friendly operation.
