We sell our worms with the goal of them surviving and either adding to, or establishing, a worm bin of your own. Unlike others who simply count / weigh worms to be sold by the pound or thousand, we sell ours in 'clumps' which contain not only a healthy worm red wiggler population, but also food and their eggs. Why do we do it this way?

We do it this way because it works. Prior to opening a retail store, we cultivated and have sold worms for years on Kijiji and through an older webstore so we know what works. And what doesn't. And what doesn't work for the inexperienced worm farmer is to spend over a hundred dollars on a large population of worms, without knowing if their environment is going to support them. Too often customers who had purchased worms elsewhere found that within a week or two, half of their investment has died off. People under-estimate how much red wiggler worms actually need to eat to maintain a population. Otherwise, they die off and limit their own population relative to available food. 

It is far more economical (and safer to ensure the worms survival) for people to order a starter clump of worms. The worms will reproduce very, very quickly given the proper conditions. You can never have too much shredded cardboard or egg cartons, and those grass clippings in the summer are just perfect. So quite simply, we sell them in this manner to ensure you don't overspend and to ensure the highest chances of survival.

They are packaged in a Ziploc twist-top container and shipped in a Canada Post Express post bag with 2-3 day delivery; this shipping option isn't cheap, but is the best bet to ensure they arrive alive anywhere within Canada. Occasionally we will use UPS next-day delivery.

Worm orders received during the week are shipped out the following Monday.

The temperature of the worms and contents

Granted it was winter but the hand warmers ....did not work for the time the red wigglers were in the package....Everything was cold (NOT COOL but cold).They were barely wiggling but I put them in a place that was gently warm.... 18 degrees and the next day gave them treats .... which disappeared within 5 days!!! They are active now!!

Fast shipping!

The red worms starter with 3 day ship is fast and worms get here fresh and lively ! Highly recommend

Just what I needed

Not only did my package arrive in a few days, full of healthy worms and cocoons, the shopkeeper also made helpful suggestions such as using coco coir instead of soil to make harvesting the castings for my spring garden easier. Highly recommend.
