What is Chapul Farms?

Chapul Farms creates circular systems - we are the project developer that integrates valuable partner waste streams, BSFL engineering experts, infrastructure engineers, and market distribution to scale carbon-reconciling, circular technology.

Put more simply: we introduce insect farms into wasteful production systems to create regenerative, circular economies. We solve waste stream problems and generate valuable products - poultry feed, aquafeed, and frass fertilizer - in the process.

The climate crisis is urgent. We need to regenerate our soil health, improve our biodiversity, actively sequester carbon from the atmosphere, decrease our reliance on antibiotics, improve the nutrition of our feed and food, and move away from our extraction-based, wasteful, and polluting linear production models of today.

Our solution is simple - we are using nature's best bioprocessing technology, the black soldier fly, to introduce circularity into agricultural production. Our "secret sauce" is how we've developed and packaged all the ingredients needed for success: the insect feed and fertilizer markets, optimized farming technology, leading global BSFL experts, microbial feedstock treatments, and a high-impact partner project network to bring our solution to commercial scale.

How is Chapul Farms Different From Chapul?


Chapul made headlines in 2014 when Mark Cuban invested in the first US cricket protein bar on Shark Tank, catalyzing financial, regulatory, and market growth of the broader insect industry. Chapul Farms, an evolution founded in 2018 to focus specifically on black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) applications, has a bigger mission: design and build modular insect farms that showcase the potential of closed-loop, carbon-negative food production.

Chapul Farms sells insect farms as "products." Our customers, often waste stream owners, are prospective insect farm investors. We spent years collaborating to lay the legal, research, regulatory, and market frameworks to catalyze the growth of the insects-for-animal-feed and fertilizer markets and to grow our own distribution sales. Validating revenue streams from insect farms further de-risks farms as investments to our farm customers.

Agricultural-induced climate change is putting human existence at risk. Insect agriculture addresses the foundational challenges of climate change and food production. Scaling our business model, and the net-positive impact, is in direct service to our ultimate customers - future generations.
