In 1953 Richard Fluker founded Fluker's Cricket Farm, Inc. in southern Louisiana to supply crickets to local bait shops for the purpose of fishing. Today, fifty years later, Fluker Farms has expanded to become the leader in live cricket production in the country.
Fluker Farms has been breeding feeder insects for over 50 years, and breeding reptiles for over a decade. They have used their breeding experience to give them the insight to produce quality, cutting-edge products for the beginner and the most advanced reptile enthusiast. In the late 1980's, David Fluker realized a demand, by his customers, to offer additional live insects. The project started modestly in a 500 square foot building.
Fluker’s Farms, Inc. has developed the largest, healthiest and most hardy House Crickets available. They are the leading producer of crickets and have expanded its feeder insects lineup to include mealworms, superworms and a complete line of reptile products.
