Worm farms in South Africa

SA Worm Farms 
Suppliers of worms and worm farms
for South Africa 

Less than 15 years ago it was not easy to get domestic worm farms in South Africa. When we started to produce worm farms in 1998 we where one of the pioneering commercial  worm-composting enterprises in South Africa selling worms and worm farms in Cape Town and South Africa.

To my knowledge apart from us there where only 2 other people actively marketing worms and worm farms in South Africa. One in the Western Cape that worked with imported worm bins and one in KZN who produced their own brand of worm composters.

Since then things have changed dramatically. In 1998 we sourced some locally produced bins and converted them into wormeries.


Worm farms in South Africa

The Tower system was introduced with the Mini Tower worm farm  and the Midi Tower worm farm as the first models to hit the market. The Midi tower a 3 tier worm farm made out of recycled plastic bins, a tap for leachate and worm tea and a lid has been copied and renamed by numerous businesses all over the country and has become probably the most successful locally produced worm farm in South Africa. Go to our products page and have a look at the original and our other products like worms and worm castings.

The Mini Tower worm farm has a volume of 85 liters. It is one of the most popular worm farms in South Africa and is usually perfect for an average 2 person household.
