The New Hampshire Farm and Forest Exposition brought farmers, vendors and the public together at the Radisson hotel in Manchester on Saturday, February 8, 2014. The expo featured lectures, products, demonstrations, food and activities for kids.

Great picture of our workers. Aquaponics would not work without our fish. These and many more provide the nutrients for the vegetables in our Londonderry greenhouse. We had a great time at the NH Farm & Forest Expo and made a lot of new friends. Victory Aquaponics
