On Vermicomposting Farms

Updated on December 18, 2011

So far, the most successful vermicomposting farmers are those who are well informed on what to do with the whole thing. Vermicompostng farms are not the typical farms that we know: a big land with a spacious area. With worm composting, you can also have it even under your kitchen sink.

If you are into business, you will need a wide area big enough to accommodate the worms.  You might as well need machines in order to produce as much worms as possible.  Now if you are just doing it in a small scale, a used plastic container will be enough.  This will serve as the worm bin.  You just have to add the bedding which is composed of old newspapers and magazines.  These are supposed to be shredded into 1 inch wide so that the composting worms can feed on them easily. 

Once the bin is okay and you’re sure that it’s already moist, you may already place the Red Wiggler worms onside. You can also use other kinds of composting worms but since Red worms are the most effective and most recommended worms, it’s better to use the best breed. If you have all these prepared, you can now have a vermicomposting farm on your own. And to achieve best results, take care of the worms properly. This can be done by ensuring that the temperature is always between 50-85 degrees Fahrenheit, the acidity level is always at 6.0-6.5 pH and the foods given do not have too much oil, acid or chemicals.

Another way to make sure that your vermicomposting farm (either in a large or small scale) realizes its purpose is by taking time to look at their smallest needs.  Though the work will mainly come from the worms, your responsibility on them welfare is very vital.
