Transforming Food Systems with Insect Biology

We build scalable insect farms to close agricultural production loops and ensure future food security.

Chapul Farms Brings Biology Back to Food Systems

We use black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) microbiology to close agricultural production loops. The insects consume and upcycle nutrients previously destined for landfills, restoring biodiversity to soils and gut microbiomes.

Closing the Loop

Re-integrating insect biology into agricultural systems is key to a food future that is sustainable, resilient, and secure.

 

Insects upcycle would-be-waste into two valuable byproducts: the larvae themselves (premium feed ingredient) and frass (insect manure; a soil-healing alternative to synthetic fertilizers).

Innovation Center

Our home is in McMinnville, Oregon. As our flagship facility, the McMinnville Innovation Center is the epicenter of our efforts to accelerate, optimize, and deliver the full benefits of insect agriculture. 

Here, we evaluate insect biology at benchtop, pilot, demonstration, and commercial scale.
