Santuk Silk Farm



Santuk Silk Farm

Posted By : admin/ 112 0

Just outside the village of Kakaoh, and opposite the start of the road that leads to Phnom Santuk, is the Santuk Silk Farm run by ex-Vietnam War veteran Bud Gibbons, and his wife. Visitors can view the various life stages of the silkworm – from egg to caterpillar to cocoon. Cocoons provide the base for the thread, which is then spun and woven into attractive kramas (scarves) by 15 local girls housed in a cooperative on-site. The kramas can be bought from a shop on the farm. Several mulberry trees dot the farm, the leaves of which are fed to the silkworms. Lunch can be provided, but the organizers need to be informed in advance.
