Bachhuber Consulting, LLC

Founded in 2014, Big Cricket Farms was the first American insect farm to obtain food-grade certifications from their state Department of Agriculture and the FDA. In late 2015, Big Cricket Farms’ pilot plant in Youngstown, Ohio closed in the face of long-term water quality issues similar to those facing Flint, Michigan. In 2016, Bachhuber Consulting LLC was formed to bring the lessons learned to a new generation of insect farmers, and to create a strong, resilient farm network capable of deftly adapting to the challenges of the 21st century.

Our mission is to lower the barriers to entry for cricket farmers, new and established, from demystifying farming to testing innovative technologies to ensuring your goods get to a hungry market.
