Nature-Based Waste Solution
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.
1/3 of the global food supply is wasted every year.
According to Project Drawdown, diverting organics from landfills is the #1 most actionable item to address climate change.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Nothing is more powerful than an idea whose time has come.
Insects unleash the power of truly circular systems, with regenerative economic and environmental benefits.
