We have discontinued production for the time being.
You can DIY a kit easily by following the documentation available on the open source project wiki:
The OBF Mealworm Farm Kit, v1.0 Beta
The complete kit includes:
With these components, some inexpensive wheat bran and a small starter batch of worms from a local supplier (ask us if you need help finding one), you'll have everything you need to grow your own edible mealworms for fun and profit!
The Beta release kits are all hand-made by our team in California from the latest Open Bug Farm designs. As an early adopter, you'll have a big impact on how it evolves.
The kit can produce 18,000 half-size mealworms for less than $10 of feed. The same could sell for $70 in a pet store.
Why not sell to local pet stores and make money from your farm?
