What is The Worm Factory® 5-Tray Worm Composter - Terra Cotta and how does it work?
The Worm Factory® is a multi-tray worm composter that helps manage the composting process. Fill each stacking tray with kitchen scraps such as newspaper, junk mail, vegetables, fruits, egg shells, coffee grounds, paper, and cardboard into nutrient-rich compost for your garden. Most "Master Gardeners" consider worm castings to be the very best compost available. Your plants will thrive with this all-natural compost. Sorting out the undigested scraps can be a messy, inconvenient chore with ordinary worm composters.Worms start in the bottom tray and migrate upward as they break down the waste. This allows worms to separate themselves from the finished compost making it easy to add nutrient-rich fertilizer to plants and gardens without sorting worms. Additionally, nutrient-rich moisture is captured in the collection tray and can be drained as liquid fertilizer known as "worm tea".


What are the benefits of using The Worm Factory®?


  • The Worm Factory® is Compact:
With its square design and having the smallest footprint of all the worm composters, The Worm Factory® works great for anyone with space requirements. The Worm Factory® uses a tray stacking system which allows it to hold the largest capacity of compost in the smallest amount of space.

  • The Worm Factory® is Odorless:
The ventilation lid allows proper air flow and the instruction manual helps you manage The Worm Factory® correctly to prevent odor. This means that The Worm Factory® can be used year round and can be housed anywhere including apartments, kitchens, garages, porches, etc.

  • The Worm Factory® is Easy to Manage:
The 16 page instruction manual makes the setup process fast and easy and gives detailed instructions on how manage the bin year round. Each tray holds 12.5 lbs. of compost which makes lifting and arranging trays effortless. The ventilation lid also contains a list of composting tips for quick reference.

  • The Worm Factory® Saves Time:
Let The Worm Factory® do the work for you! Instead of spending time turning piles of compost yourself and removing worms by hand, the multi-tray system separates the worms from the compost so you don't have to. Also, because the worms continually eat through your kitchen scraps and junk mail, nutrient-rich compost is produced at a faster rate than traditional ways of composting. In full operation, the Worm Factory® houses 6,000 worms, consumes 5 to 8 lbs. of food a week, allowing you to harvest a full tray of nutrient rich castings every month.This allows you to bring rich dark compost to your plants and gardens at a faster rate.

    So, I've only had my composter for about a month but I really dig it. I love the worms! They're like my new little pets. I opted for only a half pound of worms--I could probably have added another tray by now if I'd gotten a whole pound. The composter is definitely odor free if you manage it properly. Maybe I would have liked the lid and the longer legs on the 360 better, but the original is suiting me just fine. Can't wait till I can give my garden some worm tea!

    I am keeping the trays inside because of winter setting in. My worms are falling through the holes and drowning in the little bit of water that accumulates. I finally shoved a paper towel under the spout so when when fall through the holes, they won't slide down and drown. I am really disappointed in the product. I wish I hadn't spent the money and saved the little worms lives.

    The picture shows that these bins sit higher than they actually do. If they did sit that high they would be easier to handle to cycle out the trays.
