Shipped Order Pricing

IMPORTANT – Very hot and dry weather this summer has made it a lot more difficult to find good concentrations of worms, so turn-around times have slowed down as of late. Please be patient – you may need to wait more than a week for your order to be filled. Please, 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.

If you are outside of driving range from Waterloo/Elmira Ontario (or would simply prefer to have the worms shipped), this is where you will place your order.

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 right away (for fishing etc).

We recommend 2 bags of Easy Worm Mix for a typical home “worm bin” (and 2 bags is our only shipping option at this time).

Easy Worm Mix (SHIPPED)

QUICK SUMMARY – Again, our primary worm product is “Easy Worm Mix” (follow the link to access the guide). This is worm-rich mix that comes with beneficial habitat material that is excellent mix for stocking new systems – we recommend 2 bags for a typical home “worm bin”.

**IMPORTANT – Please Read Carefully Before Ordering**:

1) We MAY ship Easy Worm Mix to parts of Canada not listed below – BUT you must get in touch before placing an order.

2) On a related note, if you live in a remote location within our shipping range it is also very important that you contact us before placing an order (there may be substantially higher shipping charges than have been accounted for with the flat-rates included with the prices below). Failure to do so will likely result in a refunded order.

3) At this time we can only offer shipments of 2 smaller bags (about 3 litres each) per box. You CAN order multiple boxes (simply change the number in the shopping cart on the checkout page), but unfortunately there is no discount.
