With the recent introduction of our Bug Barn, Attwell Farm Park has expanded its offerings, providing visitors with an extraordinary opportunity to immerse themselves in the captivating world of invertebrates. Within the Bug Barn, our visitors can now encounter a diverse collection of over 40 exotic and domestic invertebrate species, making it one of the largest and most impressive displays of its kind in Central England.

At Attwell Farm Park, we recognize the importance of educating our visitors about the invaluable role insects play on our farm and in the broader ecosystem. Through our Bug Barn exhibits, we have designed engaging educational experiences that focus on various aspects, including insect conservation, habitats, and the fascinating life within the Rainforest. These experiences are thoughtfully crafted to align with school’s curriculum, enabling teachers to incorporate our interactive exhibits seamlessly into their lesson plans. By emphasizing the connection between our exhibits and the curriculum, we aim to enhance students' understanding of scientific concepts and foster a sense of appreciation for the natural world.

In addition to providing educational experiences, we are actively involved in conservation efforts for invertebrate species that have been identified as critically endangered on the IUCN Red List. Through our five breeding initiatives, we contribute to the preservation of these fragile species, ensuring their survival for future generations. This commitment to conservation not only underscores our dedication to environmental sustainability but also allows us to offer truly immersive hands-on experiences to schools and groups. By providing interactive and educational opportunities for students ranging from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 3, we extend our reach and appeal in the education sector, enabling us to inspire and engage young minds in a meaningful way.

The Bug Barn at Attwell Farm Park represents a unique and exciting addition to our offerings. We invite visitors of all ages to explore the intricacies of the insect world, gain a deeper understanding of their significance, and develop a profound sense of respect for the natural environment. Whether it's observing fascinating behaviours, participating in interactive activities, or discovering the wonders of insect diversity, our Bug Barn promises an unforgettable and enriching experience for all who visit.
