Welcome to Little Herds!
If you’re curious about “entomophagy,” or edible insects, you’ve come to the right place!
1st time trying edible insects? Start here.
We’re an educational nonprofit teaching the next generation about this resource efficient, nutritious and delicious food through experiential STEAM based programs, family friendly events, public advocacy outreach and partnerships with educators, universities and other organizations.
We recently finished our first BarnRaiser Crowdfunding Campaign on July 15. We were able to pass our initial goal of $8,000 and our stretch goal of $10,000 with the help of our friends and supporters from around the world. Because of the 111 people who backed our campaign we will now be able to share edible insects with teachers and children at 200 schools across the country; empower orphanages in Kinshasa to grow their own food with cricket farming; begin our Industry Reports Project to provide public data to help grow the industry; and of course we’ll still be working on starting out #ATXBSFL Pilot Project to transform Austin food waste destined for the landfill into high-quality poultry feed with BSFL micro-farms.
As a 501(c)3 charitable nonprofit, we’re funded by public contributions from people like you. If you appreciate the work we’re doing to educate the public about insects as a nutritious and resource-efficient food or feed, please consider donating today to keep us going!
