Armstrong’s Cricket Farm – Sales are Hopping with Fiber Connectivity


[MUSIC PLAYING] Armstrong’s Cricket
Farm started in 1947. We were the first cricket
farm in the United States. The reason why we raise
crickets is for fish bait. And then we moved to– in the late ’70s, early
’80s started raising them for pet food, exotic pet food,
different reptiles, amphibians. My great-grandfather
was an avid fisherman. There is a species
of cricket that we raise he found to be a better
species of cricket for fishing. And it’s moved
forward from there. Our major customers in the
past have been large retail pet stores. We also sell to the
small retail pet stores and directly to the consumers. More recently, we’ve been
selling frozen crickets to be processed into a
powder for human consumption. Whenever my
great-grandfather started, it was all word of mouth. From there, it’s moved forward. It was telephones in
the ’70s and ’80s. In the ’90s, with the
advent of the internet, it’s just moved forward. The way Fiber has
helped our business is, one, financially, it’s
helped us save money. And the other way is, with other
providers or other platforms that we’ve used, it’s
not as reliable as Fiber. By AT&T coming into
the smaller market, it helps us compete
with the larger markets and helps to level
the playing field. [MUSIC PLAYING]
