Why Eat Insects


Rocky Mountain Micro Ranch knows that edible insects are a sustainable food source, high protein, and most importantly


Here are a few more reasons why bugs are the future of food:


Eating bugs is a smart & healthy choice

compared to traditional protein sources. Various types of insects provide additional amounts of dietary needs. In some comparisons these amounts excel those found in traditional food sources. Crickets and other insects are a healthy, more sustainable alternative. 


70% of arable land goes to meat production

either directly for pasture land or for growing feed for livestock. Insect farming on average requires much less land due to many innovations, including vertical farming techniques. 



Insects can be raised in almost any climate or environment,

and they require less land, water, feed, and energy then more traditional protein sources. 


So Who's Eating Bugs anyway?
