At Full Circle Compost, our earthworms and microorganisms are our LIVESTOCK!
Full Circle Compost is proud to be a full service worm farm where we raise, employ, and sell COMPOSTING WORMS.
The species we culture, Eisenia Foetida, is one of the most popular species of redworm because they process large amounts of organic matter, reproduce very quickly, and tolerate a wide range of temperatures, acidity, and moisture conditions. These redworms live and work on the surface, surviving only in shallow layers of extremely rich organic matter. This is precisely why you will find these worms in their natural habitat of manure, compost piles, and decaying leaves.
Many gardeners enjoy adding earthworms directly to their garden soil and this practice is certainly beneficial. However, the soil-dwelling earthworkers are more suitable for this practice. Redworms will typically perish in your garden unless you specifically create a shallow habitat of rich organic matter for them to proliferate in. Although redworms may not do well in your garden soil, they will perform heroically in confinement worm bins, such as the CAN-O-WORMS, turning your food scraps into rich, fertile VERMICOMPOST.
At Full Circle Compost, we sell our worms in an active environment of VERMICOMPOST. This includes worm castings (worm manure), organic material, bedding in various stages of decomposition, living redworms, redworm eggs, and cocoons. For this reason, when a pound of redworms is purchased, the customer will actually receive 2-3 pounds of bulk material, depending on the density of redworms in that particular batch. Selling our worms this way keeps the worms in their natural, moist habitat with plenty of available food, creating a less stressful experience for both the worms and the customer. We estimate that each actual pound of worms contains between 2000-3000 worms, from eggs to full-grown breeders.
