As an alternative to traditional dog treats made with a base of wheat flour, Entomo Farms makes its soft dog treats with cricket flour.

These all-natural dog chews are made without any livestock meat proteins, yet the treats still have a high protein content that comes from the cricket powder. Insects or not, pets will be overjoyed at flavorful 'Chirpies' varieties like Carrot Pumpkin Pie, Crazy Coconut and Mango Madness.

In addition to satisfying pets, Entomo Farms is also known for nourishing humans with a range of insect-based food products. While much of the world relies on insects as a dietary supplement, this has yet to catch on in mainstream Western culture. However, insect farming may be the future of sustainable food and protein, especially as a replacement—or at least an alternative—to animal products.
