Founder of Youngstown’s Big Cricket Farms, first edible insect farm in U.S., to speak Wednesday

“Insects May Be The Most Sustainable Food Source,” said a headline last year in the Guardian, and on Wednesday, Sept. 10, you can hear from someone who’s making it happen. Kevin Bachhuber, founder of Youngstown, Ohio’s Big Cricket Farms, called America’s first edible insect farm, and an urban farm at that, will speak on “Entomophagy: Research and Career Opportunities in Edible Insects” from 3:30-4:30 p.m. in 121 Fisher Auditorium, 1680 Madison Ave., on the Wooster campus of CFAES’s research arm, OARDC. There’s also a live video link to 244 Kottman Hall, 2021 Coffey Road, on Ohio State’s Columbus campus. The New York Times and others have featured him recently. Details: piermarini.1@osu.edu.
