Welcome to Scott’s Pride Farm. I’m Scott – a part-time farmer and full-time middle school science teacher. I take a lot of pride in what I grow – primarily blackberries and figs.

Scott’s Pride Farm is located in beautiful Sunol, CA. The farm is right next door to the Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park.

I love growing in the soil, but I also grow using Aquaponics in my on-farm nursery and at home. Aquaponics is a method of combining aquaculture and hydroponics, making use of fish waste products as plant food. You can find a lot about aquaponic water testing on this blog.

In August of 2014, I presented at the AquaponicsFest in Longmont, Colorado. My presentation, “Water Testing: Beyond the API master kit” is made available online, in an expanded and enhanced format.  Aquaponic Water Testing is here.

  1. Hi Scott,
    I am a hydroponics consultant in the Midwest. I am also a former grower and researcher. I currently work for a wholesale company in St. Louis.
    I think your site looks great. I have been building contacts in the hydroponic/aquaponic community. I wanted to reach out to you in the hopes that we can share information and help each other out.
    I am also very interested in community gardens and growing and urban agriculture.

    Thank you
