Recycle and reuse your kitchen or cafeteria waste, garden waste, yard debris, livestock manure, even reduce office waste by composting paper. Flow Through Vermicomposters are designed to process large amounts of food and organic waste. The finished product is a microbial rich, natural fertilizer and soil conditioner that is a readily usable or salable product reducing the need for chemical fertilizer.
Traditional methods of vermicomposting have been based on beds or windrows on the ground containing waste up to 18″ deep, but such methods have numerous drawbacks. They require large areas of land for large-scale production and are relatively labor intensive, even when machinery is used for adding waste to beds. More importantly, such systems process wastes relatively slowly, taking anywhere from 6 to 18 months for processing to be complete. There is good evidence that a large proportion of the essential plant nutrients, that are in a relatively soluble form, are washed out and also a significant proportion can volatilize during this long processing period. Such nutrient losses are undesirable, particularly in relation to ground water pollution, and result in a poor finished product.
With our Flow Through design you will reduce and even eliminate the drawbacks of those processes. With a Vermicomposter you no longer have the need for extremely large areas. Your labor time is greatly reduced, and the work involved is easier. There is no wash out, no ground water contamination, and with a few easy management procedures you will have a high quality, microbial rich Vermicompost ready to use in as little as 3 months

The Worm Wigwam™
is efficient and convenient, requiring no compost turning and no separating of worms and partially decomposed waste from the finished castings. Harvesting is carried out simply by turning an extremely durable, lightweight crank. It is heated and insulated for optimum year-round use. The system features a raised floor design providing maximum aeration for faster worm feeding and shorter composting times. The Worm Wigwam never needs to be emptied or restarted, and uses 100% of the composting area.
The Worm Wigwam is probably the smallest industrial grade flow through vermicomposter available. When working at full capacity, its simple, unique design makes producing up to 75 pounds of finished vermicompost per week a breeze. The worms do all the work! This system was designed to meet the vermicomposting needs of small restaurants, school cafeterias and the like. It is also highly suitable for families and neighbours who wish to combine recycling resources in one very efficient, easy to manage operation.
If you are serious about composting, this is the one for you.
