Research & farm

Despite our name, we don’t actually ‘farm’ bugs at The Bug Farm!

Outside, the farmland supports the Tyddewi Herd of Welsh Black cattle, arable crops such as wheat and barley and acres of wildlife habitat including wildflower meadows, Rhos pasture, marshy grassland and heath. Our research investigates how we can viably farm these habitats to feed a growing population and look after wildlife at the same time! As part of this, we also research farming edible insects for food and feed and native insects for land management purposes.
