Additional Information

Worm Composter Transforms Vegetable Scraps into Valuable Fertilizer

  • Attractive kit for making your own worm compost
  • Easy; no fuss, no mess
  • Make super-nutritious compost and compost tea
  • Keep food scraps out of the landfill
  • Worms sold separately
Worm Farm Composter

Let worms do the work, transforming your food scraps into nutrient-rich fertilizer. It's a fun project that's good for the earth, too, by keeping food scraps out of the landfill. The stylish shape and choice of colors make the Worm Farm Composter at home in a kitchen, mudroom, hallway or pantry. Once the process gets underway you can add up to a half pound of scraps per day to the worm composter, about the average food waste for a family of four. When setting up your worm composter keep in mind that 68 degrees F. is the ideal temperature.

The Worm Farm Composter comes with two trays. When the bottom one fills up, the worms move up to the top tray. Allow the compost in the bottom tray to mature for about a month while you add your food scraps to the top tray. Empty the finished compost and repeat the process as necessary. Use the spigot on the bottom to dispense nutrient-rich compost tea for use on houseplants and garden plants.

It's ok but not as nice as I was hoping for

By Hareni33

Comments about : Worm Farm Composter:

I received product and it was as expected from the package. Easy to put together. Once I started using it though, I had some issues. I am unable to get worm tea from the bottom container through the drain. My bottom container is full of liquid but will not drain from open drain valve. I have tried clearing it to see if there is something blocking it and there is nothing. Also, mine is fairly messy and I could never keep it inside as they suggest you can. I'm debating if I even want it in my basement. Overall, the concept seems neat but I am a little disappointed with mine.

Good Idea but messy to maintain

By Pumpkin Grower

from Timbuctoo, NJ

Verified Reviewer

Comments about : Worm Farm Composter:

It was easy to set up the worm farm until the worms came, they have been escaping and dying on the floor since we have gotten the farm. Can't seem to get the worms to stay in the farm once you release them. No composting going on and I feel bad, it was a good idea just not great execution.

Worm Composter

By Okra Man

from Mechanicsville Virginia

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Worm Farm Composter:

I have not had this long enough to really evaluate. I like the actual composter. It is very nice looking. I keep it in my enclosed carport. I would rate it higher, but for the fact that the worms seem to be very slow breaking anything down. They are still alive but I can not see them composting a lb of product per week at this point. I am hoping they will multiply and the composting will go faster. Right now it is a kind of trial and error.

Love Vermicomposting, Do NOT Love This Unit!

By Outreach Coordinator

from Pala

Pros

  • cute design

Cons

  • design flaw
  • does not drain well
  • Not enough air flow

Best Uses

  • Composting Fruits & Veggies

Comments about : Worm Farm Composter:

I have been vermicomposting at home, at work, and with local school kids for almost a decade. I typically use the Can-O-Worms unit (which I can highly recommend). I decided to try out this 'Worm Farm Composter' unit for my outreach programs this year, since the design looked so cute. However, after using it for the last 6 months, I would NOT recommend this unit.

The Issues: The mesh liner (separates the worm bins from liquid reservoir at the bottom) disintegrated within a month or two of use & seems to prevent liquid from reaching the reservoir; the bins/lid can have spaces & do not close particularly well (I did not have escapees, but this does lend itself to the problem); the air holes on top are very small & do not seem to be adequate (I also widened them on one unit & didn't really help). The largest problem is that the entire unit does not drain liquid very well....this causes your bedding (I use coconut coir) to become overly saturated & yet almost no liquid (worm tea) makes it's way out of the unit. This really compacts each level & is not a very comfortable environment for the worms. Typically, this is when worms try to escape - when their environment is overly wet, overly dry, wrong foodstock....

I really loved the design of this composter, however, the design flaws are such that I will no longer purchase additional ones (in fact, I am having to re-order some new worm-composters for one of my school & I am going back to the Can-o-Worms unit).

      This is my third worm compositor. Not suitable for indoors gets small flies everywhere. Lid did not fit properly. Is more attractive than the sturdy black one I've had for years but is smaller capacity and not made as well as the one that cost me half of what this does
