High-tech cricket farm of the future

A recent UN report suggests that we need to eat more bugs. They’re better for the environment, and if you can get past the idea of eating them, are actually very nutritious. A new start up based in Silicon Valley, called Tiny Farms, is combining technology with cricket farming, trying to bring them into the mainstream. Tiny Farms is using large data sets to crunch the numbers and find out the best ways to breed, feed, and rear the small insects. Tiny Farms is still in their initial growth phases, but looking at cricket farming as a science—live they do livestock—is the best way to maximize efficiency and get crickets on a plate at a restaurant near you.
