Nelson and Pade’s Co-founder and CEO, Rebecca Nelson, shares: “All of us at Nelson and Pade, Inc.® are so happy to be acknowledged with this prestigious recognition and honored to be named a winner among some of Wisconsin’s finest businesses and organizations.”
The WIA highlights and honors the development of groundbreaking and innovative ideas. If it is a transformational idea, they want to celebrate it! WIA hopes to encourage an even greater environment of innovation by bringing innovators together from various business sectors (e.g. tech, food, healthcare, agriculture, nonprofits, education, government), and from throughout the state.
Aquaponics is a method of growing food in which fish and plants are grown in one integrated system that produces protein and vegetables, all grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. Nelson and Pade’s patented aquaponic systems are used in commercial aquaponic farming ventures, aquaponics in education and for home aquaponic food production.
In addition to the aquaponic system packages, Nelson and Pade, Inc. offers aquaponic growing supplies, online aquaponic courses and certificate training programs, aquaponic grower support and commercial aquaponic farm planning services.
