CRICKET FARMING

In this harsh, semi-arid area, where people depend entirely on what they grow for their food, and where the seasonal rains often fail, food shortages and hunger are ever-present. 
In conjunction with Jomo Kenyatta University we have just started a large-scale cricket farming project to produce a constant, reliable cost effective source of food.
We have built a custom designed cricket farming unit at St Peter’s (The Pavilion?!).

Why Crickets

-   easy and cost effective to farm

-   simple process to mill and produce as food

-   high in protein content, enriching a diet that is largely carbohydrate 

-   not season-dependent

-   environmentally friendly

-   taste good (if we can develop the right recipes!)

-   possible business opportunities for women’s micro finance scheme


The project is in the early development stages, and we will learn as we go!
