Our Mission

Our mission is to affect Tikkun Olam (a Hebrew phrase meaning "repair of the world") and our method is through growing and delivering high-quality, sustainable protein to help feed an ever hungrier world with bases of operation in economically depressed areas where our operations can have the greatest impact by bringing jobs, money, and opportunity to those communities.

About Us

Founded in 2014, Big Cricket Farms is the first urban cricket farm in America devoted exclusively to raising human-grade entomophagical products.

Our crickets are fed high-quality OMRI-certified organic feed.

Why Crickets?

Crickets offer marvelous advantages over traditional protein sources like beef. Crickets need only about two pounds of feed per pound of usable meat; for beef, it takes 25 pounds of feed for the same pound of meat. Likewise, it only takes about a gallon of water to raise one pound of crickets, compared to 2,000 gallons of water for a pound of cow. And crickets produce 100 times fewer greenhouse gasses than cows.

Nutritionally, crickets offer advantages, too: they have half the fat and a third more protein than beef.

Finally, crickets just taste good!
