We raise crickets at a small scale--for personal use--in our backyard studio. In our backyard farm, we try to simulate conditions experienced by many individuals interested in growing small amounts of crickets for personal use. On average we spend about 5 minutes a day maintaining this farm.
All classes will be held at the Backyard Farm - Eugene, OR. Address will be emailed shortly after we receive your registration. Please check your email SPAM folders if you do not hear from us.

We commercially raise crickets and process them for sale for human consumption in a facility regulated by multiple groups within the Department of Agriculture. At this facility, we house 200 batches (or 1 million crickets) and perform all aspects of cricket farming everyday. The facility is a 2,400 ft2 non-descript warehouse in an industrial section of Eugene, OR. Crickets are reared in just 1/2 (or 1,200 ft2) of the facility.
