Anyone raise frogs?
I love frog legs! I eat a lot of them, fried, a la Creole, in various sauces, etc... Usually, I go out frog gigging and harvest from the wild. But, I'm taking care of a family member right now and the waters where she lives are very not clean.... golf courses and an old Monsanto super fund site... So, I went to a seafood dealer and bought some, farm raised for $8 a pound! I think I seriously need to get into raising frogs next year! I found an old Mother Earth News article online: https://www.motherearthnews.com/homesteading-and-livestock/frog-farming-zmaz78jazgoe. But, I'd sure appreciate any advice from folks here, who do it. How are your ponds constructed... depth, size, etc. What do you feed them? Has anyone tried black soldier fly larvae feeders? How do you process and market them? etc, etc. Ideally, I'd like to do it in a Permaculture model of aquaculture - growing various plants, critters and such with the frogs.
