Consulting, Community, and Resources for Insect Farmers
In response to the critical need for sustainable proteins to feed a growing global population, we provide the tools, resources, and teamwork you need to join one of the fastest growing emerging markets in the world: farming edible insects.
From demystifying farming to testing innovative technologies and techniques to ensuring your goods get to a hungry market, our mission is to put our experience to work to help you grow.
We believe that edible insect farming will be revolutionary in many parts of the world to solve major problems related to food security, sustainable building materials, and even electronics manufacturing.
But none of that matters if you can’t build a sustainable farm, find buyers, and scale up to meet demand. And no matter how stoked you are about the industry, none of that comes easily.
Big Cricket Solutions can help. We offer expertise in cricket farming, architecture, distribution and supply chain management for farmers at every level, and our subscription model provides value for every budget.
Get Started With Fewer Mistakes
No matter what your farming background is, you’re going to make mistakes when you start building your insect farm. Maybe you bought a kit or maybe you found DIY instructions online. You’re going to have questions, you’re going to run into problems that don’t have easy solutions, and you’ll be tempted to pursue expensive solutions that may not be the best in the long run.
We’re here to stop you before you go down that road and steer you toward proven solutions and strategies that won’t waste your time.
Scaling up introduces new challenges: from time management to staffing issues to financing to negotiation with suppliers and buyers. We help you increase profitability and decrease your operating costs through knowledge sharing, innovation, and collaborative learning. We can help you identify solutions to problems you don’t even know you have. No matter how complex your situation, we can help.
You can grow bugs nearly anywhere, but not in the same way. There are no one-size-fits-all solutions.
We utilize common-sense approaches to insect farming. We look for local solutions to local problems. We advocate for farmers and community developers to think about bugs as one of many options. Growing insects is not always the right answer, and when we don’t believe it’s a good choice for you, your climate, your city, or your goals, we’ll tell you.
