Raising coral becomes a full time job; the full Spokesman-Review story runs Sunday

There are farmers and there are coral farmers.

In the hills of apple orchards and pumpkin patches of Greenbluff is an oddity, a greenhouse full of tropical ocean creatures destined for aquariums around the nation. Henk Borst, an immigrant from the Netherlands, runs the facility, where he farms and sells corals, anemones and giant clams.

The full rundown on how Borst is turning his local business into a coral powerhouse will appear in a Sunday story in the Business section, written by Becky Kramer.
 
To take a quick pictorial view, this slideshow by SR photographer Jesse Tinsley shows what's involved.
