The Cricket Shelter is designed to grow delicious crickets that are both free-range and local—just like we expect for the rest of our food.
Walking up to the Cricket Shelter—a new tent-like structure sitting on a dock at the Brooklyn Navy Yard—it might not immediately be obvious that it’s full of bugs. But inside pods lining the walls, the prototype is raising 22,000 crickets. Why? To eat, of course.
