    Comments about Worm Factory®:

    Love it! Actually purchased it because my mother-in-law was always interested in worms. This product works great for her mobility issues and the grand children think it is fun (they don't realize it's educational). Best of all no worms have escaped into my house and so far I haven't managed to kill them all!

      Comments about Worm Factory®:

      I set up the worm factory in late January with all the stuff supplied with and described in the manual and added 1# of red wiggler worms from NYC Compost Project on Feb. 1st. I've been feeding them coffee grounds and cut up tea bags and fruit and veg. scraps and egg shells. I spray the paper cover and bedding as needed to keep it moist. I was concerned that I could see so few worms but today I added more bedding mixed with some food and I fluffed up the rather matted bedding and saw more worms who were not happy to be disturbed. They and their bedding/food are now about 1" from the top of this first bin so I'll leave them alone for awhile and set up the second bin above them sometime next week. They are at 60 degrees F and producing some castings. This is a much more efficient set-up than the large plastic bin from which one must manually separate worms from castings.

        Comments about Worm Factory®:

        I have had the Worm Factory for one month and have had to add the 2nd level. The worms are now moving up and have left beautiful black gold behind. I grow and divide about 30 different daylily varieties for sale and can hardly wait to start the repotting process that will include the castings in the starter daylilies. I imagine that by February I will have the most beautiful daylilies for sale. Buy it! Enjoy it! Love the environment! You'll be surprised at how much you, too, will love the WORM FACTORY 360!

            Comments about Worm Factory®:

            This is my first experience with compost of any kind. I thought it would be fun to use worms to help do the work and to give my 3-year-old grandson a learning opportunity. Plus, maybe my veggies will benefit from the fruits of the worms' labor. My worms were a little late arriving due to cold weather, but since they got here they've been hard at work! I'm about to start my second tray and can't wait to use the compost! So far, I'm keeping the Worm Factory in the house because it's been too hot outside. No odors, no insects, no problems.

              Comments about Worm Factory®:

              We have used a large outdoor composter for more than 10 years with poor results, so we were amazed at how fast these little guys process newspaper and scraps of food. We do not include meat or cooked vegetables out of personal preference, but agree that this system would probably be compatible with urban composters who do.

              I was tired of throwing away veggies at the end of the week, now they are not going to waste. As an added benefit I don't have to pay for compost anymore and I can control the quality.

                Have it in a spare bathroom where it's warm. Works great - no odor. Live in Colorado and have been buying worm castings and rose garden looks great. Looking forward to harvesting my own. Also use the liquid for my lawn in Colorado which is hard to keep green and this works better than any fertilizer I have ever bought.

                    Great product. Easy to setup, simple to use. Described affectionately by my local vermiculture collective as "the Rolls-Royce of worm bins", I can see why after setting it up and getting it going. You can pay less for a different model or make your own, but if your time is as precious as mine it is likely worth it to spend a few more dollars on the front-end to save time and make harvesting easier. USA-made from recycled materials is also a huge bonus.

                          I wanted to comment on the worm factory as I have had 1 for a year now. The first time I tried it, I put in too much food (from a family of 4) for the worms to handle. I had a lot of fruit flies, slime mold, and I killed all the worms. I tried again, ordered 2 lbs. of worms instead of 1 lb., and only gave a little bit of food at a time. In fact, what I found that worked best was to put my food scraps in the regular composter, and then feed partially decomposed food and shredded newspaper to the worms. I probably only filled 1 tray per month. As others have commented, the capacity of the worm factory is not sufficient for 4 people. Also, it is not as easy to get the compost out. Not all of the worms migrate to the top bin. I sill find myself picking out worms in the bottom bins. However, the collection tray does fill up quite quickly and using the liquid on my plants is very easy. This composter is still the best out there and you are able to use the end products easier than a typical barrel composter.
