Obie was the cutest co-founder of Oberland Agriscience (sorry Greg!). Arriving in September 2017, she was one of the first occupants of our Ragged Lake pilot facility.
Obie was a fancy leopard gecko, adopted locally. Featured in many Oberland articles and press, she had the diva attitude to match her brand ambassador status.
When Oberland Agriscience prepared to launch a live feeder brand of black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) in May 2018, it was obvious that the brand should reflect our first customer - hence Obie’s Worms. As we launch additional products, Obie continues to provide her name – most recently to our dried ground product line of Obie’s Boost, Obie’s Nibbles, and Obie’s Crunch.
Obie has since moved on to the habitat in the sky, where she watches over Oberland with a keen eye. Fish, our resident bearded dragon, stepped into Obie's shoes as our taste-tester and symbolic quality assurance.
