Composting with the Worm Factory™
uses worms to do the work of breaking down
waste and is more
efficient and easier
to manage than
a traditional backyard
compost pile. Worm
compost has been proven to have ten
times the nutrients of traditional backyard compost. In addition, its compact design makes it perfect
for use in any household.
Worm composting makes it easy to recycle kitchen scraps, paper waste and cardboard into nutrient- rich fertilizer for your plants, creating a more sustainable lifestyle. The worms work 24/7 to efficiently produce highly beneficial, rich compost packed with microbes and water soluble plant nutrients.
The Worm Factory is simple to set up and operate. Managing your Worm Factory takes less than 15 minutes a week. Simply add a handful of worms and your organic waste such as kitchen scraps and shredded paper to the bottom tray of the Worm Factory. The worms will start processing the food. Once the bottom tray is filled add another tray. The worms migrate upward to the newest food source leaving the bottom tray full of nutrient-rich compost. You can do this year-round inside or outside, and harvest compost up to once a month!
Your first tray will take about three months to become fully composted by the worms. After the first tray is composted the other trays can take as little as a month depending on the waste added. Once you harvest your finished compost from the bottom tray, you will have an empty tray to stack on top again.
The nutrient-rich finished compost can be used in your garden, raised beds, container gardens, or on houseplants. Even if you’re not a gardener, the Worm Factory helps you reduce your impact and provides an alternative to throwing your waste into the landfill.

This product is a wonderful addition to anyone practicing organic gardening. The worm castings are easy to harvest and are a priceless addition to flower pots.

Absolutely no smell or mess. I have mine in the kitchen! It's great to have the worms at work all winter in NE New York, and not have to schlep the compost to the pile, awaiting the spring thaw. I love this product!

I have had the product working for a couple of months now and love it. Based on design, ease of use and appearance, I have recommended this product to several fellow gardeners. I have always thought I did a good job recycling and composting, but this has raised that to a new level and I now use items such as newspaper and paper towels for my worms that would either been recycled or thrown in the trash. Coming up with food "recipes" is quite fun.
