Another use for food scraps - The BioPod

We learned of the BioPold last fall while at a sustainable energy fair. We generally like to research products in advance, deliberate and then purchase. However, seeing this, we saw great potential and bought one that day.

The BioPod is a breeding ground for black soldier fly. You can read more about the BioPod and BSF, but I am pleased to see how our chickens go crazy for the “BioGrubs”. The BioPod manual notes: “These beneficial larvae have a myriad of uses, and contain approx. 42% protein and 34% lipids (fat), with an impressive amino acid and mineral profile.” Not too shabby.

Here are our chickens getting their BioGrub supplements.

And here is a demo of the BioPod from the fair last fall.
