Worm composting benefits


I’ve run my first worm business for more than 13 years and during that time I came across people from all walks of life who wanted to start worm composting.

Many clients just wanted to use the compost worms as high protein food source for their animals!

We sold worms to...

  • Breeders of birds of pray
  • Fish keepers (Aquarium and Pond fish)
  • Toad and frog owners
  • The owner of an exotic monkey.

One of the possibly biggest worm composting benefits is the fact that it makes a contribution for a better environment.

Many environmental conscious people started their own worm bin to reduce their carbon footprint, reduce the pressure on landfill sites and assist in the fight against global warming.

Unfortunately millions of tons of wet waste are still dumped on landfill sites where they decompose airless and produce methane gas that is contributing to global warming.

Gardeners all over the world use Worm castings produced in their worm bins to grow the most beautiful flowers, healthiest fruit and vegetables and the greenest lawns you can imagine.


We have supplied many senior citizens with small worm farms

who use them to produce nutrient rich plant food to give to their indoor plants and generate a little income on the side!

Many children love worms and are learning as young citizens about the benefits worm farming can bring to themselves and the environment.

The list goes on and on…
