Jiminy’s Takes You on a Tour of a Cricket Farm

Check out Cesar Millan's excellent training book below.

We get a lot of questions about where our crickets come from, how they are raised, when they are harvested, etc. In this short video we’ll answer these questions and you’ll get to take a quick look inside a cricket farm!

This is one of the most humane and sustainable protein sources available. We say it’s humane because of the way that the insects are raised, the amount of their natural life lived and the way they’re harvested.

Crickets are naturally a swarming species, and like being in a dark, warm place. They’re raised in cricket condos (inside barns) which allow the crickets to live in a way as close as possible to how they would live in the natural world. They are free to hop from feed station to feed station, and can burrow deep into the condos if they choose.

Harvesting time comes near the end of their natural life cycle. This comes after they have mated and laid their eggs. At the end, temperature is lowered and they go into a hibernation-like state before they’re harvested.
