Feed The Way Nature Intended
Insects and Plants

Chickens don’t forage for fish and fillers, so why put it in their feed?

At Grubbly Farms, we full-heartedly believe that nature knows best. So we’re saying no to fish and soy-based feeds, and YES to the natural diet chickens love! Insects and plants.

The Healthiest Blend

Grubbly Layer Feed is the world’s first naturally balanced feed with insect protein as the No. 1 ingredient, the way nature intended. With a healthy mix of USA-grown grubs, plant-based proteins, essential amino-acids, vitamins and minerals, your feathered family will stay strong, healthy and happy.

Ingredients with Integrity

From grubs and grains to pumpkin and flax seeds, your feathered family is getting wholesome foods, and essential vitamins and minerals to keep them happily nourished. And what we leave out is as important as what we put in. No fish. No Soy. No fillers. No additives. No byproducts. No compromises.

Sustainably Sourced

Most layer feeds contain fishmeal imported from countries where food safety and oversight problems are not up to American standards. Our black soldier fly grubs are a healthy, FDA-approved feed ingredient, safely and sustainably grown in the USA to naturally nourish the ones you love.

I don’t see the grubs, where are they?

Grubbly Layer Feed
Gives Love to the Planet

It’s easy to look around the world and think, where is the love? Our landfills are overflowing with food waste, our oceans are being overfished at an alarming rate, and our population is rapidly rising causing a desperate need for an alternative protein.

✓ In the USA alone, over 52 millions tons of food is wasted every year before ever reaching the end consumer.
✓ Nearly 10% of the ocean’s catch is ground up into fishmeal to feed our pets and livestock, causing devastating effects further up the food chain.
✓ Forage fish are vital to healthy oceans, yet they’re churned into fishmeal as a key source of protein in chicken feed, which is mass-produced and labeled as “natural”. Yikes.

1 Bag = 70 lbs of Food Waste Recycled + 20 lbs of Fish Protected


At Grubbly Farms, it’s our mission to nourish our pets with black soldier fly grubs, while nurturing our planet. Grubbly Layer Feed is first layer feed in the world to nourish chickens the way nature intended using nutrient-rich, environmentally-friendly black soldier fly grubs as the No. 1 ingredient.

Not only are black soldier fly grubs packed with protein eliminating the need for fishmeal in feeds, they’re also sustainably-grown in the USA consuming mountains of food waste that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
