Many times our artisan worm castings get compared to other worm castings based strictly on price. While we understand this easy comparison tool, it really isn’t accurate, or even fair to you the consumer. Our worm castings are unlike anything on the market today.
We believe in the simple motto of less is more. We feed our worms only the finest organic vegetation along with a healthy serving of glacial rock dust to help their digestive process and to provide essential trace minerals in a plant ready form. We then add our custom grain mixture that is also completely organic to ensure our worms get the proper protein and they live like kings and queens. Happy worms make super beneficial worm castings!
We truly take the artisan approach with our worm farm practices. Everything we do is by hand to ensure the highest quality standards in the industry! Because we have such a high physical labor component to our operation we only make a limited amount of worm castings every two weeks and frequently sell out before the next harvest. We encourage everybody to check with us (by email or phone) to make sure we have the available inventory for your needs. It is possible you will be placed on a wait list for larger orders and we encourage you to do so at least a month in advance of your needs.
For those who wish to use our worm castings we highly encourage their use in making microbial rich teas. Because of the amount of life we have present in our worm castings you are able to use half of what you typically would with other brands, if not a third. For a 5 gallon bucket brew of tea we suggest 1-1.5 cups of worm castings per brew but most customers report being able to go even less then that and easily reaching their desired microbial count.
For now we only have a very few stores in Colorado Springs that carry our worm castings, for everybody else we only deal on a direct farm to grower business model. This ensures you get the highest freshest quality product as possible, right from our worm farm to you. We do ship nationwide and while shipping costs are brutal please feel free to email us and we will see what we can do for large orders.
Last week we sent out our monthly newsletter and got a surprise email back from Larry Stebbins over at Pikes Peak Urban Gardens. Earlier this month we took a large donation of worm castings over to PPUG at Harlan Wolfe Ranch and they have been putting it to great use even this late in the growing season! You can see the load of worm castings we left for them in the first picture.
“Hi All, we have been using your worm castings as a light mulch over our newly planted carrots, beets, Swiss chard and spinach. The germination has been fantastic. We will be recommending this practice to our gardeners”. – Larry Stebbins
We cannot thank Larry enough for the kind words and the pictures he passed along for us to see and use.
