Farm 432: Insect Breeding by Katharina Unger

By 2050 meat production will have to increase by 50%. Considering that we already use one third of croplands for the production of animal feed, we will have to look for alternative food sources and alternative ways of growing it.

Farm 432 enables people to turn against the dysfunctional system of current meat production by growing their own protein source at home. After 432 hours, 1 gram of black soldier fly eggs turn into 2.4 kilogram of larvae protein, larvae that self-harvest and fall clean and ready to eat into a harvest bucket. This scenario creates not only a more sustainable future of food production, but suggests new lifestyles and food cultures.

Black soldier fly adults don’t eat, the larvae can be fed on bio waste, therefore the production almost costs no water or CO2. Black soldier fly larvae are one of the most efficient protein converters in insects, containing up to 42% of protein, a lot of calcium and amino acids.

  1. Erm, I’m just going to stick with staying vegan. I get all my protein from plant and fungi. No animals hated and no insects harmed either.
    Also, veganism will always win at any resource battle since eating plants skips the “middle man”.
    Even an insect will have to consume more protein in the form of plants than it produces itself.
