GYO GREENS is your North Florida Aquaponics farm

GYO GREENS uses a sustainable farming method which combines traditional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals - in our case, KOI fish - in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. All produce is grown naturally using standard organic practices. We also use beneficial insects and companion planting for pest management. We do not use GMO seeds.

Meet our family!
Andrea Acosta
Andrea started with us as a volunteer while attending high school. She was very curious about our operations and wanted to learn more about it. So she decided to complete some of her required graduation volunteering hours at GYO GREENS. Andrea soon learned how much she enjoyed the entire process.
Her dedication, curiosity and passion for our work earned her recognition from the farm colleagues and supervisors. Needless to say, as soon as a position was available we were delighted to ask Andrea to join us. Andrea is also a very talented artist and musician. She is the staff behind the artistic design of some the micro greens we assemble for special occasions.
Maria Fernandez
Maria joined us at the very early stages of our farm development. Maria is very passionate about growing plants and beautiful crops.
You can find Maria assisting us in all areas at the farm. She is very fond too of our beloved fish ensuring they all grow healthy and beautiful. You will find Maria at our farm always welcoming everyone with smile.
