Research, Farm & Conservation

We are extremely lucky to own, manage or graze about 85 hectares of land across the St Davids peninsula – an area equivalent to about 200 international football pitches. We manage our land primarily for wildlife conservation. Our farmland is home to our Tyddewi Herd of Welsh Black cattle, arable crops such as wheat and acres of wildlife habitat including wildflower meadows, Rhos pasture, marshy grassland and heath. Our research investigates how we can farm to feed a growing population and look after wildlife at the same time. Despite our name, we don’t actually ‘farm’ bugs at The Bug Farm, but we do have an insect farming display in our Museum.
