Marc Sanchez aka
The Cricket Man​
Cricket Micro Farming Expert

Marc has been farming crickets in Oregon since 2006. He was one of the very first people permitted by the USDA to farm gryllodes sigillatus here in the United States following the great cricket virus of '09.

He has designed and helped design some of the most innovative cricket farming equipment in the world. He teaches budding cricket farmers how to grow crickets via online instruction, his instructional course "The Cricket Man's Guide to Micro Farming Crickets" is the first of its kind anywhere in the world.

He is currently writing a cricket farming curriculum for 4H groups all over the country. He regularly teaches people how to farm crickets one on one right over the Internet using his guide as curriculum.

Marc is currently designing and testing cricket micro farming equipment at his own farm: Pacific Coast Cricket Farm & Research Lab. And working on more books and videos that will help people learn how to micro farm crickets.

Regularly in contact with world class entomologists and people in the cricket farming and entomophagic community all over the globe, he has  been studying these industries for over 10 years, and has logged over 20,000 hours of actual cricket farming time.

Marc got his nickname because his farm provided feeder crickets to local pet shops for years, and whenever he would call up one of the stores to check on their cricket supply, they would always say "It's the Cricket Man!" 

Marc knows many of the closely guarded secrets, tips, and tricks of the trade that commercial cricket farmers have used for decades.

Whether you need to regularly harvest 100 crickets or 100,000, Marc can teach you everything you need to know in order to become a successful cricket farmer.

He also hosts the weekly podcast: "Eat Bugs, Farm Bugs"-Adventures in the Ento World with The Cricket Man. You should check it out.
