Mulberries Organic Silk Farm
The silk farm has 17 hectares of land for the cultivation of mulberry trees. The leaves are used to feed the silkworms, as well as produce tea. Mulberry leaves are scientifically proven to be the best food for silkworms. Villagers are taught how to use natural fertilizers such as compost and how to prune the trees in order to produce bigger and better leaves.
