Chapul Farms is an insect agriculture project development company that designs, builds, and operates commercial scale Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL) facilities.


Our mission is to restore biodiversity to agriculture, soil, and planet earth for a more sustainable, resilient, and secure food system.

If we get agriculture wrong, nothing else will go right.

Current food production is linear, extractive, and unsustainable.

We sacrificed long-term soil health for short-term yield increases.

We sell insect farms as solutions to customers with organics waste streams.

Farms are customized and co-located, depending on the client. Our project development services turn organics waste costs into valuable products with a positive climate impact. 

To scale this solution, Chapul Farms partnered with Nexus PMG.

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.

Insects make products in rapidly growing markets.

Insect farms not only eliminate waste, but also create natural animal feed and bio-fertilizer products. 

 

Aquaculture is the fastest growing food production system. Insects are the most promising fishmeal alternative for their sustainability, positive impact on animal health/welfare, and ability to scale.

Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL) have proven to be remarkably effective at consuming a wide range of organic materials and converting them into their protein- and lipid-rich biomass and soil-healing frass.

Processing organics wastes with BSFL produces 70-90% lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to composting.

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

1/3 of the global food supply is wasted every year.

“I am regularly convinced that adding insects into the broader landscape of agriculture is a profoundly pivotal course of action to ensure long-term food security on planet earth. There is growing support from the scientific community focused on long-term global agriculture that we need to increase: biodiversity, climate resiliency, systems integration, and tighter nutrient/carbon cycles. Insects, and the microbial ecosystems they bring with them, shine in all categories. They are also demonstrating a role in bioremediation of some other massive challenges in our pipeline: water quality/availability, soil health, and carbon sequestration, to name a few.”

 

- Pat Crowley, Founder & CEO of Chapul Farms 

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.

Insects are an impact unicorn.

Insects unleash the power of truly circular systems, with regenerative economic and environmental benefits.
