Tiny Farms is pioneering the industrialized production of insects for use in food, animal feed and industry. Our team are experts in entomology, automatic data capture technologies and industrial design, advised by a twenty year veteran of commercial cricket rearing. Demand for food-grade insects is doubling annually, with dozens of startups marketing new consumer food products. There is growing interest in insect derivatives, like proteins, lipids and chitin, for use in animal feed and industrial processes. Current farms are inefficient and low volume, so insects remain expensive and difficult to source. Using high resolution data capture and analytics to guide iterative development of an industrial mass rearing system, we`re building a profitable high-efficiency cricket farm in Oakland, California. Our long term vision is to build a pipeline for the assay of insect species’ potential as agricultural products, and the development of systems for their commercial production.
