Finding the Answers through Partnerships, Research, Training and Innovation…
Converting Caravan into Insect Business
Our latest project- Converting a 20 foot Caravan into a commercial insect breeding business. We have bench marked setup costs, running expenses, income and energy. We are in the process of developing a very detailed webinar and book series to help people set up commercial insect farms.
Developing a Flat Pack Cricket Breeding Container
We are bench marking our new cricket breeding method which will revolutionize cricket breeding for hobbyist and medium size commercial cricket breeding. A very high productive system which requires very little maintenance. Our aim is to find a investor and flat pack this method so that every pet hobbyist, zoo, wildlife carer, commercial insect farmer or families in developing countries can produce crickets easily and efficiently.
Sustainable Stock Feed
Working with Inland Australian Farmers to Breed Sustainable aquatic and terrestrial plant Feeds to help feed Cattle and support farmers in drought. We will also use these methods to provide a sustainable food source for insect breeders to help reduce the reliance on wheat and fishmeal pellet products. Hot
Breeding Insects for Organic Chicken (Vietnam)
Working with Vietnamese family to breed Insects to feed a large Chicken farm which will utilize waste rice product and convert it into high value animal feed for chickens. This will provide food and income to a large family.
Mealworms Feed for Aquaculture
Working with Drought Stricken Farms in Australia to breed Mealworms to create a new industry to feed Aquaculture fish farms.
Edible Insects Production
Working with an American Business to develop a large scale cricket farm to be bred as edible insects for humans.
Insects as Fish Food in Aquaponics (Australia)
We are using our crickets and mealworms to feed Silver perch fish in Aquaponic Systems. We are doing this to our own aquaponic systems and in partnership with a Aquaponic business.
We have a number of other projects we are undertaking ourselves or with other partners:
- Investigating sustainable solar and battery solutions to insect farming.
- Helping people making income using insect farms.
- Helping people reduce food expenses by breeding insects to barter for people who have chickens or fish (eggs, and fish exchange for insects).
- Helping wildlife carer groups to be self sufficient in breeding their own insects…reducing expenses and allowing them to care for more wildlife.
- Many others!!
Whats your project!! Passionate Partners Wanted.
If you have a passion about the huge potential of insects and sustainability then we want you on board. There is something awesome about working with like minded people with a passion for making the world a better place. We aim to create a better economy, a better community and a better environment.

14 Years of Sweat and Tears…Or Access the Best Information Instantly?
Not many people realize it initially, but breeding insects is a “school of hard knocks” industry. Those who do well, learn from their mistakes quickly and learn from others who have spent years trialing different things. We have made many mistakes over the years and toiled using high maintenance techniques. Then we learnt how to do it much quicker and with less effort. After 14 years you learn a few shortcuts and learn how to:
- Build the right containers that are durable and have the right balance between ventilation, removing toxic gas in summer, heat retention and preventing pest entry.
- Build durable, stable and reliable food and water dispensers that are automated to minimize maintenance and reduce cannibalism
- Manage vinegar flies and other pests which nearly destroyed our business
- Sort, pack and distribute to customers.
- Create consistency through standardizing of feeding, maintenance and management.
- Be efficient with your time and how to reduce or eliminate costs (e.g. solar heating, reduced maintenance, efficient design).
