Vermicompost (also called worm compost, vermicast, worm castings, worm humus or worm manure) is the end product of the breakdown of organic matter by certain species of earthworm. Vermicompost is literally THE BEST nutrient-rich organic fertilizer and soil conditioner.

"I have been using the wigwam for about 3 months. It sure is a lot better than using barrels or wooden boxes.
Separating the castings from the worms or worms from the castings was always a real problem and a hassle.
With the wigwam I just turn the crank and let the castings fall through. There are a few worms that are stubborn
and hate to go to the top but the numbers are very small and mostly baby or juvenile worms. Very slick operation.
Here in northern Nevada the days are hot and nights are cool in the summer. With the wigwam the temperature in the
bed stays at a very even temperature , unlike barrels or boxes. It is getting cold at nights now and the wigwam
is staying at about 75 degrease...
I would like to thank you for your help. If I would have forgot all I knew about raising worms and followed the
instructions to start with I would of had a much more productive worm business from the start.
p.s. the WIGWAM is worth every penny. A very slick worm factory.
