Why BSFL.png
Insects are a keystone species to soil biodiversity.

Insects leverage millions of years of microbiological evolution to process organic material into healthy protein and fat, add microbial life to agricultural soils, eliminate food waste, decrease agricultural GHG emissions, and decrease reliance on fossil fuel and unsustainable inputs to plant and animal agriculture.

According to Project Drawdown, diverting organics from landfills is the #1 most actionable item to address climate change.

Chapul History

Pat Crowley and 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 applications, has a bigger mission: transform food systems with insect biology.

Chapul Farms' path reflects a concerted effort to weave insects back into the fabric of our agricultural landscape. It began with creating market demand, then the model worked its way back down into the supply chain.
