Mealworms are perfectly good protein as is, and probably healthier than hormone and antibiotic laced store bought meat. Just add inexpensive wheat bran which you can get in bulk cheap. Also, good for feeding chickens if you are not ready for entomophagy.
The kit is a complete setup for breeding and rearing a continuous production of up to 1kg of mealworms every 26 days, given optimal conditions. That’s enough for eight 1/4 pound servings every month!
The complete kit includes:
One Mealworm Farm Frame
Two Mealworm Grow Bags
One set of Mealworm Breeding & Nursery Bins
Add the Mealworm Farm Tent for a self-contained environment.
With these components, some inexpensive wheat bran, and a small starter batch of worms from a local mealworm supplier (ask us if you need help finding one), you’ll have everything you need to launch your own mealworm farm for fun and profit!
For more information on what the kit contains and how it works, check out the wiki page.
If you’re not sure where to start, just visit the forum to meet fellow farmers!
And this is just the start! We are releasing this initial version of the kit for immediate sale by popular demand, but there is more coming soon. You can look forward to the web based farm tracking and management tool, and automated climate control options.
