The redworms, also called Eisenia fetida or red wigglers, we ship to you
are grown at our farm here in Richland Center, Wisconsin. We are not a
fulfillment center or an order-taker for other farms.
When we receive your order, we pull a solid mass of worms from our worm beds,
then separate the worms from the bedding in order to weigh them. We then add
dry bedding during hot and cold months to ensure live delivery.
Water will need to be added to the worms once you receive them.
They may seem deyhydrated but they will rebound nicely with water.
See Worm Care Instructions for more information.
Redworm orders shipped to midwest states (IA, IL, IN, OH, MO, WI, MI, MN, ND,
SD) are shipped Wednesdays via Spee-Dee Delivery. Orders shipped to other
states are shipped Tuesday and Saturday via U.S. Priority mail.
If you would like other shipping methods or arrangements please call us at
608-647-2008 or email us.
Consuming food waste is not the end of the benefits red worms provide. Worm
waste (or worm castings) generated from consuming food waste provides an excellent
soil enhancement for indoor and outdoor gardeners, landscapers, and farmers.
Using worm castings is a safe, chemical free, odorless way to add nutrients to
soil and has been shown to stimulate plant production of hormones that resist
pests and disease.
Worm castings are also used to easily create a liquid fertilizer often
referred to as casting tea.
For the small or indoor gardener we can ship five or ten pound packages. We can
ship much larger quanities, too. If you would like larger quantities, please
contact us via telephone or e-mail.
