About

According to the U.N, the population will reach 9.7 billions by 2050 Land is scarce and expanding the area devoted to farming is rarely a viable or sustainable option. Oceans are overfished. Climate change and related water shortages could have profound implications for food production. We need to find new ways of growing food. To meet the food and nutrition challenges of today – there are nearly 1 billion chronically hungry people worldwide – and tomorrow, what we eat and how we produce it needs to be re-evaluated. The solution? Insect Farming! Edible insect farming, like crickets, is a remarkable alternative to conventional livestock farming. It needs just a fraction of the resources traditionally required. Cricket powder is 70% Protein by weigh, twice as much protein compared to beef, pound for pound. Also, it has all essential amino acids, high in calcium, iron, omega 3 and vitamin B12. Capitalism has forced farmers into inhuman & unethical farming methods... Animal cruelty is rampant and problematic. Food quality keeps decreasing over the years. On the contrary, our crickets are living in the utmost natural living conditions. They like warm & humid temperature with lots of space to hide. They are strictly fed high-quality organic food. We recuperate heat from bitcoin mining computers & the electricity come from a renewable source, hydro-power. The insect manure is sold to local farmer as fertilizer. NOTHING goes to waste at out farm.
