140L Worm Farm

This is the waste-reducing hero your wheelie bin line-up has been missing all along! These quality, sturdy worm farms are 100% Australian made and are guaranteed to set you up for worm farming success.

This size worm farm can process up to 2kg/4L of organic waste a day, and at full capacity it can house 4kg (16,000) worms. That may sound like a lot of wrigglers, but this size is perfect for couples or families who produce average amounts of organic waste. We want to help you divert a decent dent of your organic waste from landfill (if not completely eliminate), so we’ve designed all our worm farms with effective processing capacities in mind.

The continuous flow design is easy to use and provides a spacious, comfortable environment for your worms. No shuffling of trays, simply fill from the top and empty from the bottom. The easy porthole access makes harvesting cast a breeze and the perforated suspended false floor ensures any excess liquid can drain freely through the worm farm and doesn’t drown your hard-working wormies.

The price of the worm farm includes all appropriate bedding to get you started, comprehensive manuals and ongoing support from our customer care team. Worms can be ordered as an add-on if desired.

The details

Worms

How many worms?

Our recommended starting quantity is 1kg (4,000) worms. At full capacity the worm farm can house up to 4kg (16,000) worms. We find this starting point works well as it gives you time to learn the ropes of worm farming and allows the worms to breed up in their new environment while giving them a bit of extra space while they settle in.

Worms will reproduce and self-regulate numbers to suit the size of their environment. Given the right conditions numbers should double once every 3 months*. Therefore, if you start with our recommended quantity of worms you should reach full processing capacity of the worm farm within around 6 months.

*Note: Worm reproduction rates can vary; these estimates are based on optimum conditions being met in the worm farm.
