This is, hands down, the most commonly asked question we get. So common in fact, we often already know you're going to ask it even before you do. Like right now for instance.
We get our crickets from cricket farms. Cool, what's a cricket farm? A cricket farm is is an indoor facility where crickets are raised from egghood to adulthood specifically for human consumption.
Where are these cricket farms you speak of?
There are cricket farms all over the place. East, west, up, down. Two of the largest and most well-known farms in North America are Aspire (in Texas) and Entomo (in Canada.) However these are just the big ones, there are smaller farms all over the world and more are popping up every year.
We get our crickets from a farm in Thailand and you can find out why here.
Why not just catch them in the wild?
You mean like this? Looks challenging.
Also, by FDA law, we're actually not allowed to sell wild-caught insects. If we served you crickets caught in the wild we would have no idea what they were eating, what they were getting into, and how they spent their Saturday nights. Raising them on a farm allows us to feed them the best possible diet, assure you of their cleanliness, and most importantly...no one has time to go running around a field catching thousands of crickets.
