Recipie: Veggie Smoothie
It's high time that we have a new recipe here on the blog. This one is both healthy and a bit of a sweet treat. It's a smoothie, but not the kind with loads of ice cream or sugar. With that said I'll jump right into the recipe:
- 1/3 cup Greek Yogurt - Greek yogurt is creamier and packed with more probiotics and protein than regular yogurt.
- 1/3 cup Vanilla nut milk
- 1 celery stalk
- handful of spinach
- 4oz of Sunflower shoots - or any shoot of choice here
- large kale leaf with the rib removed
- 1 pear or 1 banana - peeled and chopped
- 1 Tablespoon chia seeds - high in Omega 3 and help keep you full longer
- handful of blueberries
Now starting with the vanilla nut milk and Greek yogurt, add all the ingredients in a blender or food processor until everything is chopped and blended. At this point you can add more vanilla nut milk if the smoothie seems too thick or add some more berries to make it fruitier.
Last step: Enjoy!
A Visitor from the East
Yesterday we were honored to have a visit from a fellow aquaponic farmer. Our friend Shumin traveled all the way from China to see our farm! We first met Shumin in Hawaii at an aquaponics seminar hosted by the good folks at Friendly Aquaponics. Now both Rhibafarms and Shumin's Aone farm are running large scale aquaponics units of our own.
Shumin and his partner run Aone farm in the city of Yantai in Shandong Province, China. Just like Rhibafarms, they raise chickens, grow food in greenhouses and of course use aquaponics. Aone also sells their food primarily through a CSA! It just goes to show that connecting people with good food grown using sustainable methods is a world wide effort. Little farms like ours and Shumin's working together is what is piloting the movement for better food and better farming.
While he was here, Shumin got to see our commercial system at the urban farm in Chandler as well as the stage one progress on our newest aquaponics project at the ranch in Gilbert. It was great to meet with Shumin and share our projects with him. Hopefully soon we will make a trip to China to visit Shumin at the Aone farm and bring some of their practices back with us!
World Water Day
World Water Day is approaching and this year the focus is on the food security side of water conservation. Water and food is what Rhibafarms is all about. One of the major components to making good food is good water. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations is trying to educate people on just how much water it takes to produce the foods we eat and how we all can decrease our water footprint. Check out this short video below that illustrates the amount of water that goes into various foods.
Our commercial aquaponics system is a stellar example of how to grow with as little water as possible while still providing the plants with nutrient rich water. The system recirculates water and is mostly covered, this means that most of the water that leaves the system is actual water aspirated by the plants. In other words, our aquaponics system is tremendously efficient because we don't have to deal with evaporation or run-off of unused water.
As an un-offical World Water Day event Rhibafarms will be hosting a special "water day edition" tour. The tour will coincide with World Water Day on March 22nd. You will get to be up close and personal with our aquaponics systems on this informative tour lead by our very own Mark Rhine. The tour is open to the public, but you must sign up in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 480-632-0272. Hope to see you there!
As most of you know, we live in a very citrus friendly area. It's one of the many reasons besides the cool weather to look forward to this time of year. Everywhere you look the citrus trees are bearing orange, yellow and green globes ripe for the picking. Something makes fruit grown locally taste so much better than the mostly dull imported citrus from Mexico and California.
We all know that citrus are some of the best tasting fruits going, but it is worth mentioning the tremendous boost of vitamins and minerals they can provide. Not only that , they can also play a roll in boosting your immune system. All citrus fruits are great for vitamin C. Grapefruit in particular are rich in lycopene. Lycopene is key in combating cancer causing free radicals and can reduce the risk of prostrate cancer in men. Lemons can be useful in reducing inflammation. It is also good to eat for those battling a urinary tract infection. The acid aids in flushing out bacteria. As for oranges, they contain a flavanone known as herperidin which is effective at lowering not only blood pressure but also cholesterol. So throw an orange in with your apple a day to keep the doc away.
It just so happens that we have our local citrus available in our CSA store as well as at the Phoenix Downtown Market and Gilbert Farmer's Market. We strongly encourage you to eat citrus and stay healthy!
When we talk about juicing it usually has to do with wheatgrass. Wheatgrass is really powerful good stuff, the only problem is that it requires a special auger style juicer to properly be juiced. So for those of you with normal juicers and blenders, I propose to you our shoots as juicing fodder.
Our sunflower and pea shoots are perfect candidates for a green juice. The broccoli, being thin and delicate would yield less juice but it is still juice-able. The radish on the other hand may have too much spice for your green juice, maybe radish juice should be saved for another drink all together (Bloodymarys). But seriously, if you are into juicing you can find few better ingredients than our shoots. For more specific information on our shoots, check out these previous blog posts:
I like to mix up the pea and sunflower shoots with some spinach, carrots, celery, ginger, and whatever other greens I can find. This is my morning power drink and helps me get through the day! The pea shoots give the drink a nice sweet finish and the sunflower provides a rich and hardy body to the drink you can even sprinkle in some cut broccoli shoots into the drink and mix them around, that is if you don't mind a little texture in your juice.
If you want to try juicing shoots for yourself, we have them available in our online store as well as at the Phoenix & Gilbert farmer's markets. Are you already an avid juicer? Write in and share your favorite recipes and we will post them up here on the blog.
Expanding to a New Market
We have expanded to a new market, farmer's market that is. Recently we have begun selling our goods at the Gilbert Farmer's Market. Don't worry we will still be at the Phoenix Public Market on Saturdays as well.
Gilbert market goers can choose from our freshly harvested and prepared foods that we have on hand or they can order a head of time through our online CSA and pick up from our market booth. Using the online CSA is the best way to guarantee that you get the goods you want without fears of early morning sell outs!
The Gilbert Farmer's Market is located at the Park & Ride on the southwest corner of Ash Street and Page Avenue in Gilbert. The market is every Saturday and runs from 9am to 1pm. This market includes about 10 other local growers as well as booths featuring food, heath products, crafts and even a petting zoo and other fun activities for the kids.
If you have never been to the Gilbert Farmer's Market, we highly recommend that you check it out. While you are there stop on by the Rhibafarms booth and say hi!
Aquaponics at Home Part 2
Some of you eager backyard farmers have been wondering about the progress of our home aquaponics prototype. Well we have progressed a lot since the last post.
We moved the unit outside, got the plumbing worked out and moved it back inside since the last update. Because it is inside the office at our urban farm in Chandler, we have a grow light doing the sunshine duty. As you can see from the photos, we are using volcanic rock as a growing medium. The lettuce that you see growing was direct seeded right in the rock.
The system is preforming extraordinarily well so far. We still have some tinkering and experimenting to do but we are getting closer to planning out the production model. If you or anyone you know has an interest in a home aquaponics growing unit, drop us a line and give us your questions and thoughts!
Whole Foods & Rhibafarms
We are excited to announce a new way for our CSA customers to get our locally grown goods. Starting today you can select to pick-up your CSA orders at the Whole Foods store on Raintree Dr. in Scottsdale.
Rhibafarms will drop off at the Whole Foods on Thursday mornings. CSA members will then have until Sunday evening to pick up their orders. All orders that go un-picked up will be donated to a food bank.
This marks another step in our continuing effort to bring fresh and local food to the people of the Phoenix metro area. We hope this addition to our pick-up locations makes it easier to participate in our CSA. If you would like a pick-up location added to your local Whole Foods, email us and let us know the location. If we get enough requests for a particular store, we will talk to our friends at Whole Foods and see what we can do to set it up as a location. Thanks for your continued participation in our program!
Valley Permaculture Alliance
Have you heard about the Valley Permaculture Alliance? They are an awesome collective of valley residents who are devoted to sustainable urban living. The group revolves around their multifaceted website which features forums, blogs, videos, an event calendar and tons more. It's all about educating members and the community at large on practices such as backyard chickens, urban gardens, composting and much more including aquaponics, which as you know is very near and dear to our hearts here at Rhibafarms. If you are a valley resident who practices or is interested in sustainable living, then you must check out the Valley Permaculture Alliance.
One of their upcoming events is a special permaculture alliance tour of our urban farm in Chandler. We will be giving an in-depth demonstration of our full scale commercial aquaponics system. It is going to be a great opportunity for us to share our knowledge that we have gained through developing and building this system with budding aquaponic farmers. Who knows, we may even learn a thing or two from this group of smart urban farmers.
If you would like to join the Valley Permaculture Alliance, check out their website at www.phoenixpermaculture.org. Also contact the alliance if you have questions about their upcoming field trip to Rhibafarms on the 18th of January. Thank you to the Valley Permaculture Alliance for your interest in our operation.
We will see you all next year!

Rhibafarms Ranch Update
This week I want to tell you about the progress on our large scale aquaponics system at the Rhibafarms ranch in Gilbert.
The pond is full and has mostly catfish living in it but there are also some blue gill and other fish swimming around in there too. This pond circulates it's nutrient rich water to the hand full of storage tanks we have scattered around our field. This system feeds the main garden areas.
On the other side of our main gardens is our newest aquaponics project at the ranch. It's a Tilapia system like the one at our urban farm in Chandler. The tanks are very near completion and we have put up a deck around the tanks to allow easy access for fish maintenance. We are using round tanks this time around and that should present some new challenges. At this rate we will be priming the system real soon. After we run it for a week or so with good results from water tests, it will be time to add the fish. We will post up a video of our Tilapia going to their new home as soon as we can. Stay tuned for more updates on this and all of our exciting projects going on at Rhibafarms!
New Winter Products!
You're in for a treat if you visit the Rhibafarms booth at tomorrow's Phoenix Public Market. We have an awesome trio of new products!
We have a fresh haul of Mandarin Oranges. Grown in Gilbert at the Rhibafarms ranch. These are some tasty oranges and make a great cool weather snack.
There is also a new green hanging around Rhibafarms, arugula. This is some delicious stuff. It is the perfect salad ingredient. Top it on a pizza with some mozzarella and marinara and you got one great pie! The ingredient possibilities are near endless with this arugula.
Last but certainly not least is our new moringa. Unlike the Mandarin Oranges and arugula, moringa isn't a widely known edible. The moringa leaf contains all essential amino acids, have vitamins A B + C as well as being rich in protein and minerals. Moringa has an earthy taste and ends with a slight spice. It can be used as an ingredient in many Indian dishes. Check out the following links for info and recipes for moringa.
We hope to see you all tomorrow at the Phoenix Public Market to check out our new goods!
Closed for Thanksgiving
In celebration of Thanksgiving, Rhibafarms will be closed on Thursday and Friday. We will also not be attending this Saturday's Downtown Phoenix Market. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Just because it's called "Turkey Day" it doesn't mean you have to eat a turkey. Here are a hand full of some of our favorite vegetarian Thanksgiving recipes:
- Vegetarian Turkey
- Pumpkin Cornbread
- Homemade Cranberry Sauce
- Roasted Sweet Potatoes
- Apple and Pomegranate Salad
- Butternut Squash Soup
- Hot Apple Cider
If you want to do more than just NOT eat a turkey on Thanksgiving you can go one step further and even adopt a turkey from Farm Sanctuary.
We hope you all have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
A Chicken Named Eleanor
This week I had the pleasure of talking with Nicole, one of our chicken adopters about her experience with the program. Nicole and her boyfriend Steve are a couple of months into their adoption and are really enjoying the experience. They made a pilgrimage out to Chicken Town in Gilbert to pick and meet their chicken that they have named Eleanor. It was Steve's idea to name their Ameraucana hen Eleanor. he liked the idea of their chicken having an older generation name. I think the name fits perfectly, it harkens back to a time when more people raised their own chickens and had a closer relationship with their food.
Upon arriving at Chicken Town, Nicole was surprised by how much space the birds had to run around and all the unique areas they had to roost in. The setting of Chicken Town gave her peace of mind that Eleanor and the other chickens would be happy and well cared for. We like to give our birds a lot of room to stretch their wings.
The funny thing is that Nicole has always wanted a pet chicken. She has been fascinated and drawn to them ever since she was a little girl. Adopting a chicken has finally granted her the ownership of her very own chicken. As a person with a busy lifestyle and living in an apartment she would of had no other way of fulfilling this goal. She didn't want to wait until she was older and more settled in somewhere.
Before adopting Eleanor Nicole purchased her eggs from the farmers market, but local eggs sell out fast and often she would come up empty handed. She was also skeptical of store bought eggs with their uniform size and color. The eggs she receives from our adoption program come in a wide array of sizes and colors. Nicole and Steve were even lucky enough to get a double yolk out of one egg!
Nicole and Steve think that knowing the chickens that make your eggs make a big difference. It adds a personal touch and gives a pride in ownership. Plus it's fun to tell your friends that you adopted a chicken and to talk about the unique experience.
We still have chickens available if you want to be like Nicole & Steve and know the chickens that produce your eggs. In the last adopt a chicken post I had mentioned that we would soon have a chicken gallery up so would-be adopters could select their own chicken. We had some technical hiccups and are still working on that feature. That doesn't mean you can't still choose your adopted chicken. After completing the adoption through our CSA store, call and schedule an appointment to visit chicken town and handpick your feathered friend just like Nicole and Steve did.
Aquaponics at Home
Today I'm going to give you a sneak peak at the home aquaponics system we are developing here at Rhibafarms. We call it a "patio system" and it should be able to fit on most patios. There is still a lot of R&D to be done before it is available for purchase.
The prototype unit is being set up in the lobby of our Chandler urban farm. In the coming weeks we will be working on getting it plumbed and ready. Come on by the farm in Chandler to see it and keep checking back to witness it's evolution into a working eco-system.
Let us know if you have interest in owning a home aquaponics system. Your input will be greatly appreciated as we move to design our production units. The plan is to go with a modular design and have multiple kits based on your desired configuration. But first things first and I will keep you updated here on the blog as we get this prototype rolling!
Food Day a Success!
Earlier this week on Monday we celebrated the first annual Food Day with our friends at Rio Salado College in Tempe. The event was put on by Rio's sustainable food systems headed by Chef Michael Hodgins. The sustainable food systems program also has an awesome garden. The garden is a mere sliver on the edge of a parking lot, it is an outstanding example of what thoughtful farming techniques can accomplish even in a small area. Rio Salado Farmer Josh Sundberg who is responsible for a lot of the garden you see today has been through our farm tour in Chandler and even has a small barrel Aquaponics system going in Rio's Garden.
The event itself featured a hand full of high quality local food companies and advocates. There were also some great cooking demos. The Cafe @ Rio featured a handful of special dishes for Food Day featuring food from local sources. We had a great time and had the opportunity to speak to many interested people. Thanks to Rio Salado College for having us we really appreciated it!
Below is a video of our own Mark Rhine giving a short talk on Aquaponics and Rhibafarms in general at the Food Day event.
Product Spotlight: Chia Seeds
Looking for something new to spend your CSA points on this week? Try Chia Seeds. Yes, they are the same seeds that are implanted into ceramic animal shapes known as Chia Pets. Every time I mention chia seeds to someone, I can almost hear the "cha cha cha chia" theme song playing in the back of their head.
Chia seeds have much more to offer than being the fur of some gimmicky fake pet. They are actually a superfood containing 60% Omega-3 fatty acid (3.5oz of chia = same amount of Omega-3s as 28oz. salmon). Chia seeds also contain as much calcium as 3 cups of milk(per 3.5oz serving), as much iron as five cups of raw spinach(per 3.5oz serving), 21% protein (higher than that of wheat, corn, rice, oats, and barley) and 30% of your daily requirement of fiber (in one serving). In the vitamins & minerals department chia seeds have B, C, and E, calcium, phosphorous, potassium, zinc, and copper. To top it all off chia seeds are gluten free and have no trans fats.
The chia seed is an ancient dietary staple that has recently regained prominence in naturopathic circles. Historically, native peoples of North, Central, and South America have used this seed from the salvia hispanica plant because it was found to enhance endurance, provide long-lasting energy, and served as a source of medicinal remedies. A core element of the diet of pre-Columbian civilizations, specifically of the Aztec warriors, this natural product served not only as a staple of their diet, but it proved to be especially beneficial during hunting expeditions, battle, and everyday running between villages for trade. Today, scientists and health specialists are rediscovering this food’s naturally occurring nutritional benefits and are encouraging its use among people of all health levels and goals.
You can eat chia seeds raw but most people add water to them, when you add water to the seeds it turns into a gelatinous puddling like consistency. They are surprisingly filling and can be used as an appetite suppressant. We use chia seeds in many of the products we create, from our Ugly Salsa to our Wheatgrass Power Shots. Because chia seeds have no real flavor, they serve as a nutrition packed base to build flavor on to. It helps make our salsas and humus more thick and easier to scoop.
Try them out today and let us know how you like to use chia seeds!
Tour de Rhibafarms
Most people have a certain fascination with how things are made. This fascination is multiplied for things that we enjoy and use. For this reason we operate small tours of our urban farm in Chandler.
The farm in Chandler is home to our plant nursery, greenhouse and most importantly our commercial sized aquaponics system. During a tour you will get to see the food that you eat at all stages of growth, from seed to harvest. Tourists get the opportunity to see the way the aquaponics system flows and will even get a chance to meet the fish who make the whole thing work.
After a tour you really see how much time and care we put into your food. This experience can make you stop and think about all it takes to get the food to your plate. Many customers also gain peace of mind that the food they buy from us is grown right. On the tour you get to see our natural growing processes for yourself!
Rhibafarms tours are also great for home gardeners interested in doing their own small greenhouse. We have also had many people who are aquaponic growers or interested in getting into aquaponics find our tour very informative and enlightening.
We run the tour once a month with the next one happening on the 30th of October. If you would like to be a part of this next or a future tour, call 480-632-0272 to be put on the list.
Food Day 2011
Food Day 2011is vast approaching! For those of you unaware of Food Day, it is a day to talk about and push for food that is sustainable, healthy and affordable. Of course there is more to it than that, go to foodday.org to learn more. Food Day is on Monday October 24th!
Rhibafarms will be participating in the Food Day event at Rio Salado College. We strongly encourage you to come out and meet the folks in your area who are growing real food. There will be booths featuring local food producers so you can have the opportunity to meet and ask questions about the food they make. In addition to the booths there is also going to be some great cooking demos as well as a talk from out very own Mark Rhine on Aquaponics! The event is from 11 to 2 at Rio Salado College, 2323 W. 14th St. in Tempe. Stop on by, learn more about food and those who grow it and if you have the time, stop by the Rhibafarms booth and say hello!
Wheatgrass Power Shots
Last post it was wheatgrass for our furry friends. Today's post is about wheatgrass for bipeds, humans specifically. Here at Rhibafarms we have recently begun crafting wheatgrass concoctions that we are calling "Wheatgrass Power Shots". These shots include more than just wheatgrass, they also feature a dynamic list of other healthy goodies depending on the season. The short list includes: cucumber, chia seeds, beets, carrots, sunflower, broccoli, pea, chard, collard and many more!
Where can you get your hands on these powerfully healthy drinks? Every Saturday at our booth during the Phoenix Public Market's outdoor market. Make Rhibafarms your first stop because supplies are limited and also because these shots will give you a super boost of energy far superior to coffee. One power shot should keep you fueled through your Saturday whether it be full of recreation or just grueling old yard-work or house keeping.
Intrigued but want to know more about wheatgrass? Check out this blog post we did a few months ago all about wheatgrass or better yet, come see us at out booth this Saturday and ask the experts and daily wheatgrass drinkers.
Wheatgrass, it's not just for people!
Wheatgrass is what started us on this path to becoming urban farmers here in the Arizona desert. Today wheatgrass is still one of our top products. In fact we are the only farm in town who grows it and probably the only one in the entire state too. We featured wheatgrass in a post a few months ago, where we told you about all the wonderful benefits of drinking wheatgrass juice but did you know that it is great for your pets as well?
Have you ever noticed your cat or dog eating grass out in your yard? Many people think that they do this to induce vomiting because of a stomach ache. Regardless of the reason, you shouldn't let your pets eat your grass that has been treated with tons of fertilizers and pesticides over the years. Instead offer them some wheatgrass, they will gladly go for the naturally grown stuff over that chemically saturated lawn of yours in an instant. Not only will this take care of your pet's want to chomp grass, it will also allow them to reap the nutritional benefits of wheatgrass.
Many cats, and dogs too will eat the grass without having a stomach problem and will also not vomit from it. Cats especially go crazy for wheatgrass. Just be careful because your dog or cat may also want to play with it while they eat it and make a grassy mess of your house! A good solution to that is to cut it and mix it into their food.
We sell smaller portions of wheatgrass which we call "Petgrass", it is available through the online CSA as well as at the Phoenix Public Market. At the low price of $2 we encourage you to get one and see how your pet(s) react to it. Who knows you might just discover an unexpected treat for them. We sell the Petgrass for only $2 because all of us here at Rhibafarms are dog, cat, and pet people and we are excited just to be able to offer this healthy treat for them. I know I only mentioned cats and dogs here but it goes with out saying that your rabbit, turtle, hamster, or any other herbivore pet will also love this petgrass.
Now I leave you with this video of our friend Krista's dog Roscoe going to town on a flat of Rhibafarms wheatgrass.
Aquaponics Association Conference
I know we've been talking a lot about chickens, eggs and CSAs lately, but we have also been working just as hard on our aquaponics project at Rhibafarms in Chandler. In fact, this has been our first summer with a mature system that is completely operational. We were unsure how the lettuce in our outside troughs would react to the intense summer heat. Much to our excitement, the leafy greens thrived through out the mostly inhospitable (to plants) summer.
This weekend is the Aquaponics Association Conference in Orlando Florida and we will be there! We are excited to learn some new tips and tricks from our fellow aquaponic farmers. In addition to talks and workshops, there are also a handful of tours of aquaponic farms in the area. It should be very interesting to see how other people do it in the different climate. Murray Hallam is giving a keynote speech, which will surely be entertaining as well as informative. If you've ever googled aquaponics, then no doubt you have seen at least one of Murry's aquaponics videos on youTube. Our good friend and mentor Susanne Friend will also be doing a keynote, she always has an interesting talking point in regards to aquaponics and farming in general and we look forward to seeing her again. If you are going to be in attendance, come find us and say hello!
Dinner Time in Chicken Town
Thinking about adopting a chicken from us, but aren't sure about the environment the chickens live in? In the video below, you can see a typical family dinner for our flock of birds. Their first course is all the left over wheatgrass, shoots, lettuce and other veggies from the week. The main course consists of piles of veggie scraps from the good folks at Atlasta Catering. For dessert the birds snack on organic laying feed for chickens. These are some well fed chickens, but don't take my word for it, see how excited they get in the video!
Introducing the Rhibafarms Six-Pack
Lots of great things come in sixes, strings on a guitar, your favorite beer and now Rhibafarms eggs. With the new Rhibafarms six pack, you can buy just the right amount for your family weather it's large or small. We also know that some of you only use eggs in baking and these six packs will be much more manageable.
Our new six packs are only $3 and all of that money goes to the care of our free range birds. Caring for this flock of birds in the Arizona heat takes a lot of time and resources. So while the egg nets us zero profits, the chicken plays a much bigger permaculture role at Rhibafarms in providing us with sustainable fertilizer and for consuming all of our plant waste. They also do a great job of taking care of the vegetable scraps from our friends at Atlasta Catering.
Let us know what you think of the new six packs and we will see you at the market!
Adopt a Chicken
Our CSA store has been running full steam for going on two weeks now. We've had to work out a hand full of kinks but for the most part it's working out great and getting better every day. Some of you may have noticed nestled in with our veggies and shoots is an option to adopt a chicken. It's no joke, you can really adopt one or more of the chickens that live in chicken town at our Gilbert ranch!
Here is how it works. You purchase the adoption plan from the CSA store, this pays for 90 days of adoption. During the 90 days you will receive a six pack of fresh eggs per week. Need more eggs per week? You can adopt more than one bird. When your 90 days is coming close to an end, we will drop you an email reminding you to renew your adoption plan. If you decide not to renew, we will find your bird(s) a new adopter. We are doing our best to keep it simple and easy.
Sometime next week we should have our updated adoption process online. It will allow you to pick which chicken you want to adopt from our line-up of birds. You can even name your chicken! If you have already adopted a chicken, you can email us which chicken you want to adopt, once the gallery is up and we will reserve it for you.
It's as simple as that. If you have more questions, send us an email or call 480-632-0272
