GrubTubs Inc. supports family farms and sustainable cities across Texas. Starting in Austin, we collect spoiled grub from restaurants and use it to help our local farmers transform waste into sustainable animal feed for their animals.

OUR GRUBS WANT YOUR GRUB #TABLETOFARM

GrubTubs collects food from restaurants and repurposes in by growing protein-rich grubs that become animal feed for chickens and pigs. #TableToFarm 

The innovative business model behind GrubTubs earned the top prize from the Austin WeWork Creator Awards in 2018.

Did you know that animal feed is the number one expense in agriculture? Feed costs are even higher than labor for American farmers. And even worse than the economic impact, current animal feed is environmentally unsustainable as it takes up around 70% of the farm acreage in the United States that could be used for other purposes.

American farmers prefer to grow food without chemicals and oil dependencies, but most of them can't completely commit to this practice because they are required to economically compete with global and multinational farming practices. As a result, most family farms have been sold for real estate development or foreclosed on by banks due to unprofitability and insurmountable debt.

What if the solution was just a simple integration between our cities and our farms?
