Future of Agriculture 022: Eating Bugs with Robert Nathan Allen of Little Herds

Little Herds is a non-profit organization that promotes insects as food and feed. In this episode, Robert Nathan Allen (“RNA”) describes why insects should be a larger part of our diet and feed. Also, he describes the business models of some current insect farming operations.  

Even if you’re not going to rush out and buy some cricket protein bars, the case for insects, especially for feed, is compelling. Enjoy this episode with an open mind and let me know what you think about the pros and cons of large scale insect farming.
