Butterfly Farm

 

Butterfly Farm is located in the town of Marinduque. Marinduque Lepidoptera Farm began as a hobby for Dr. Carmelito Pe Sevilla and his nature-loving wife. In 1999, their daughter's research on the butterfly industry inspired them to experiment with host plants in their backyard. This led to the establishment of a butterfly farm that grew into a reliable international supplier as well as a top Marinduque tourist spot.

Recognizing the potential in their town, the couple initiated the Gasan Butterfly Breeders Multi-Purpose Cooperative to help local butterfly breeders overcome challenges. With support from the provincial government, the cooperative now has 70 members and is the top supplier of pupae and live butterflies in Marinduque. The Sevilla family's commitment reflects their dream to professionalize the backyard butterfly industry and contribute to their community's well-being.
