Kyle & Jen here, this is the original post from the founder of Midwest Worms. Lonnie has passed away and as a tribute to him and his passion for worm composting and for Midwest Worms we have decided to leave this first original post of his up. He wrote this post back in the Spring of 2014.
This is our first “official” blog post. Lola and I (you can learn more about us on the “About Us” page) are very excited to be launching our new worm farming business here in Eldridge MO, and look forward to connecting with many other passionate worm composters, gardeners, fishing fanatics in the months and years ahead!
Please don’t mind the “wet paint” as you look around the website. Our good friend is helping us get it up and running, and it is definitely a work-in-progress (but we are very grateful for the help). We hope to be writing a lot more about the worm farm, gardening – and a variety of other topics – do stay tuned!
...regular soil worms are NOT well suited for worm composting, and cannot be raised very easily in captivity?
Similarly, composting worms should NOT be released in your garden or on your lawn! Any supplier that tells you otherwise is simply trying to separate you from your hard-earned money.
If you want to learn more about how you CAN using composting worms in the garden - or about anything else relating to worm composting, please drop us a line anytime!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi, Kyle and Jen here. We have started up a small worm farming business, and we're really excited to start helping others get into raising worms (for fishing, worm composting, or even for profit). Thanks for stopping by!
