We grew up fishing with Red Wiggler worms. It wasn’t until recently that we learned of their value in composting as well. This is also when we learned of the term “vermiculture” which is the production of worms for composting and other uses.
At Greenway Farms we developed the idea of raising worms commercially to use their waste, or castings, as a fertilizer for our commercial size garden. Worm castings and the processed liquid version, worm tea, make the best natural fertilizer known to man. Countless studies have shown the terrific value of using worms not only as natural composters to build premium garden soil, but their waste as a natural fertilizer.

For us it’s a win-win situation because some of our livestock and garden waste is used in the production of worms. In return, the castings and tea are used to enhance our crops which are then sold and also fed to the livestock. Our worm production is a key component of our sustainability as a natural family run farm.
While our worms help sustain the farm they also love to go fishing. Red Wigglers, as they are known throughout much of the south, have baited many a hook and provided many a fish for fish fries. They are hardy, hard workers, and apparently taste pretty good to most species of fish. We sell our versatile worms in bulk form to satisfy the needs of gardeners, fishermen, and pet stores who use them as bird feed. Check out our store for prices and packaging. All of our worms are guaranteed to arrive alive at your door.
