A good plan with rugged support is the difference between success and failure.
Big Cricket Solutions provides a la carte and package consulting services to bring you from plan to farm to market. Whether just beginning your research, adding new food-grade capacity to your decades-old farm, or building a new industrial facility from scratch, our services are designed to reduce time, costs, and frustrations associated with starting and growing your business.
Our focus is on building a sustainable, robust, diversified insect industry to feed a growing population amidst dramatically changing climates, whether that means one-off consultations to answer a specific question or two or establishing years-long relationships to assist at each stage of scaling a client’s business.
Specific projects have included business planning, small to midscale facility design, viability assessments, and food-grade certification. Consulting projects typically include on-site and remote work.
