Wilderness Boundary Restaurant purchased four composters for our new organic greenhouse. We have only used the composter for a few weeks and thus far we have utilized pounds of what would otherwise be kitchen waste. The "food" is going through and old food processor that we had on hand, this makes the worms work a lot faster. We have fed three times and the food waste has already been turned to great soil. We are still on our first layer but the worms seem very ambitious. Following the instructions was easy but a few conflicting areas such as temperature were noticed. We think the Worm Factory is great and we are now able to utilize what would otherwise be waste. We can't wait to try the worm tea when the worms really start producing our fertilizer and soil. We are impressed and we've just begun. The Worm Factory is an integral part of our organic greenhouse, it is just as important as the vegetables and herbs.

      Comments about The Worm Factory® 5-Tray Recycled Plastic Worm Composter - Green:

      I purchased the smaller version of this 'apartment'several years ago. Buy this one. Those worms are hungry and if you tend to them well they will multiply quickly. The chelate supply in the smaller versions requires constant attention. I had to create a drip catcher that wouldn't get knocked over while the spigot was in the open position. Chipmunks were investigating and disrupted my first catch-all container. I think I needed to hire a doorman for the smaller worm apartment. So buy the big one. I keep mine going all year long. I move it inside our garage in the winter (yes it's heated) and back outside when the weather cooperates.

          The Worm Factory arrived, three days after the worms. Their new home was very easy to put together. I would recommend ordering the worms a few days after the composter is ordered.

            It is everything I had hoped for and more. Once opened and finishing the instructions I was ready to get started. My worms arrived just two days after the Worm Factory and are now resting in the fist tray.

            If there was anyone that wanted to begin a worm farm or create useable compost for their garden this is the only way to go.

                  I did a lot of research before ordering the worm composter and placed the order on a Monday. Had the composter here on Tuesday and the worms on Thursday and have it all set up, which was really simple, and am excited to see the resulting compost/castings. Great customer service, prompt arrival of goods, good value, very pleased so far.

                    Customer Q & A

                    2 Questions About This Product
                    Q: "How many worms do I need to purchase with the cascade compost bin?"
                    A: You should purchase about 1,000 worms to start your composter. After this initial purchase, the worm count will double every three months!
                    Q: "I ordered worms from you and they have arrived before my composter. What should I do with the worms until I get the compost bin?
                    A: The worms can last up to ten days in the packaging they arrived in. (Not the best, but they will last) Give them some water when they arrive.

                    If you're afraid they won't make it, you can make a temporary home for them instead. Put the worms into a plastic container about the size of a shoe box or bucket. Put some shredded black and white newsprint in the bottom that has been moistened (about the amount of a rung out sponge). This will act as food and bedding until your compost bin arrives and they can be placed into their new permanent home.
