Our worm farm

     Today I decided to tell you about our worm farm. It is a Worm Factory 360 ( and is an Upwards Migration Composting Worm Bin System. That means that you stack specially made bins on top of each other and the worms migrate up through them. We have two levels on our farm and we will add another when the level gets full. We started out with 1,000 red wigglers and now have at least 10,000 or more. We feed our worms coffee filters, tea bags, potato skins, squash skins, carrot peels, etc. We do NOT feed our worms garlic, onions, high amounts of citrus, or dairy products. Our three girls (look below) have been enjoying the worms too. We sometimes pick out some worms to feed to them. They seem to enjoy that. We can also use the chicken's waste on the worm farm so we have the complete circle of life.

     If you have a worm farm and/or have suggestions please comment below.


  1. We should go fishing in the spring! The worms would come in handy!

  2. Making butter out of separated milk sure beats lemonade out of lemons!

  3. Hey I have worms to. I use the castings in my garden to grow lots of veggies. If y'all ever want to visit my garden ask your dad to bring you down.
