Live worms guaranteed

We send our worms with priority shipping! We want our worms to arrive happy and healthy to their new home. If for any reason they do not, contact us within two days of arrival and we will send a replacement.

How do we ship our worms?

We ship with piority mail! Because our worms are a priority! We nestle them into a breathable canvas bag and poke holes in the box so your worms get plenty of air. Once shipped, they should arrive within 2 business days. If you order over the weekend, we will ship them out at the start of the week. We will notify you if we need to delay shipping them out due to weather conditions.

  • Top Feeders (Epigeic)

    The reason these worms are great for composting is that they love to hang out in the top area of the soil and eat a large quantity of organic matter. They're part of nature's clean up crew, and good news for us, they also love to clean-up our food scraps!

  • They make Compost! Specifically Vermicompost (which is better! way better!)

    The real reason they're called compost worms is that they make vermicompost. Except--all worms make compost? Yes, but these worms make compost faster. They love to eat and they love to eat what we've got on offer. The reason the "red worm" is so popular for composting is that it is fantastic at breaking down our food scraps and turning them into compost. Want to see the finished product?

10/10 Good worms

Just started my composting journey, and I was super excited to know that there was a local place by me. I chose to do deliver since my schedule was crazy, and the little guys came so well packaged even though it was about a 30 minute drive for them haha. They took a few days to get settled, but they have been working their butts off! Really great, all looked really nice. I will def be buying more whenever I upgrade their enclosure!

Took awhile to get them but they were alive and healthy. I’ve gotten worms from other providers that were not as energetic as these upon arrival.
