Did you know you can grow your own silk from your own silkworms? Well you can! Add silkworms to your backyard farm as a source of income, a child’s science project, or anything in between. Silkworms eat mulberry leaves, and they do not leave their food source. They can be reared in open boxes with your own homegrown leaves if you have enough mulberry trees.
