Composting Worms

IMPORTANT – I am aiming to continue filling orders until sometime in November, weather permitting. But this is an unpredictable time of year, so delays of more than a week before worms get shipped out (or are available for pick-up) are not uncommon. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions and I’ll try to get back to you as soon as I can.

Our primary composting worm product is called “Easy Worm Mix”. This is rich habitat material taken from our worm production beds (containing worms and cocoons), added to a breathable bag, along with an additional 250 hand-counted Red Worms. This product is a great starter culture for any new vermicomposting system since it contains worms at all stages of growth (cocoon through to adult) – so you should expect to see your population grow quite quickly.

The remaining habitat material that comes in each bag will help to inoculate your system(s) with beneficial microbes and other helpful composting organisms, and just generally help to kickstart/accelerate the vermicomposting process. Since it’s material the worms are used to (unlike the usual worm shipping substrate, peat moss) – it should also help them to settle in to their new environment much more quickly as well.

For more information (along with step by step instructions), please refer to the Easy Worm Mix guide before placing your order.

Easy Worm Mix – Summary of Key Benefits

  • Less expensive (than “pounds of worms”).
  • Ships incredibly well (we’ve had boxes in transit for as much as a month and the worms were perfectly fine).
  • Worms settle into new home more easily.
  • Comes with valuable vermicomposting ecosystem.

Potential Limitations

  • MAY require a bit more patience – especially if you are stocking a larger system
  • Not ideal if you need larger worms (for fishing etc).

We recommend 2 bags of Easy Worm Mix for a typical home “worm bin”.
