What You Need To Know

You strive to have a farm with distinction, and to enhance production. You struggle to reduce input feed costs, and reduce energy costs.

Entomo Farms, creators of Geoentomophagy , has a practical, easy solution to help you achieve your goals, simply by infusing cricket powder (cricket flour) and mealworm powder (mealworm flour), in part or in whole, into livestock and pet food.

The nutrient value of cricket powder (cricket flour) and mealworm powder (flour) is parallel to that of other food sources. However, the most powerful difference is that it comes at a fraction of the cost to your production and to our planet, as it serves to reduce the ecological footprint that is associated with beef and chicken protein production.

Entomo Farms is currently working with National and International partners, such as leading Canadian universities in this field, and Canadian food chain suppliers and farmers, to advance this cutting-edge bio-technology, bringing Geoentomophagy into the mainstream and understanding and pioneering import/export laws and requirements as they relate to insect protein-infused livestock feed.

Currently, excellent empirical peer-reviewed research through generous grants is being conducted globally. These investments being made by governments and entrepreneurs underscore the incredible opportunity that is Entomophagy – for us, our pets and our food sources.

We Have So Much To Offer

Pet Food


The newest trend in the pet food industry, raw food diets, has taxed the protein production capacity of the planet. Pet owners are now feeding their cats and dogs top quality beef or chicken that previously made its way to grocery store shelves. Switching the protein in pet food to insect protein will have astronomical benefits for the globe.

Entomo Farms envisions a whole new eco-pet food market, with a focus on Geoentomophagy that will maximize nutrition for pets while reducing the ecological footprint through pet food that consists of insect protein. Entomo Farms offers both certified organic and standard production protein for use as an ingredient in pet food. From cats to dogs, hamsters to goldfish, we have a solution for you.

If you sell or manufacture pet food, and are looking to reduce your costs, while producing high quality, high protein pet food, all while being environmentally and energy aware, then be sure contact us.

Fish Farming


Fish are insectivores by nature .

Entomo Farms, along with respected Canadian universities and leading industry partners, has conducted some incredible research, and the results remain consistent across the board.

Studies show that when fish are allowed to consume insects, they thrive in a multitude of ways:

  • Increased feeding response, which will lead to better production
  • Reduced mortality rate
  • Reduced disease
  • Increased rate of growth
  • Better color and texture in the meat

The studies prove that incorporating insects into commercially produced feeds will benefit the fish and all who eat them.

Chicken Farming


Chicken, like fish, are natural insect eaters. Entomo Farms conducted an informal study. Live mealworms were fed to baby chicks that were only a day old. They took to them like they had eaten them every day for years. Remember, these chickens had not seen a live worm before, nor had any chickens before them going back many generations. As the mealworms were dropped on the ground, the baby chicks rushed to them, devoured them, and looked for more.

Although this was just an informal study, Entomo Farms was inspired to create an entirely new opportunity for livestock feed.

All over the world, research is being conducted, confirming the opportunity for insect-based feeds. To date, the research is showing that chickens not only grow very well on insect-based proteins, they thrive in a multitude of ways:

  • Reduced disease
  • Reduced mortality in young chickens
  • Increased meat to carcass ratio
  • Improved flavor of the meats
