Ever heard of an Insect Farm? Neither have we, but now we are convinced that insect farming holds the secret to a more sustainable future. During this 75 minute trip, you'll be hosted by Kai Ning, the 25-year-old co-founder of Insectta, Singapore's first-ever insect farm. More on InsecttaAt Insectta, Kai Ning dreams of a world where black soldier flies will solve our food waste problems. The greedy larvae of these flies that she raises gobble up food waste, and in return, poop out organic fertiliser of the highest quality. Larvae also becomes quality feed for livestock. One insect, multiple uses, and zero wastage!'Insects are so useful in so many ways and we hope what we do here can dismantle years of stigma surrounding insects for a better future,' said Kai Ning.We usually prefer to respect insects from a distance, but we love having a place to encourage us to get up close, and see all the good these little critters bring. This activity is great for kids of all ages!Meeting DetailsThe educational tour is held at Insectta, 60 Jalan Penjara, and is suitable for learners of all ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult. In the event of rain, the tour will continue as planned as the premises are sheltered.Please DO NOT spray insect repellent before or during the visit.Important NotePlease note this activity requires a minimum of 8 people to go ahead.

Our guide Kai made it a really good experience, she managed the challenge of teaching adults and young children in one group with ease! Such an interesting experience and learning more about the future of farming. And Cosmo was also a highlight! 😂

Hi..just want to enquire if it is possible to do field trip for ages 5_6 years old (K1) in this insect farm? There will be around 20 kids in one class and most probably 3-4 adults. Not really sure if it is possible as I have read that maximum 10 pax only for each session. Thanks you and looking forward for your response.
Hi Donna, Yes, the capacity of the farm is for 10 people. For group of 20 people, we would recommend to split the group into 2 sessions You can contact us for more details at chat@seeksophie.com :)
Hi there! Are there any tours available for the insect farm on Sunday or Monday?
This trip only occurs on Saturdays.
