Coral farming

In the rolling 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. You can learn more about Borst’s business at and you can learn about the activities of local salt water aquarium keepers and the Spokane Coeur d’Alene Reef Society at on the web.
