Vermiculture or Vermicomposting as it is also known uses nature's own compost makers, worms to generate compost. The Worm Factory® automatically separated food scraps from the finished compost. You simply fill the bottom tray with red wiggler worms, bedding and food scraps. As the worms finish digesting, they will migrate upward into the tray above, leaving rich castings behind. Moisture is also gathered in the collection tray and can be easily drained for use as a nutrient rich liquid fertilizer. It couldn't be easier or cleaner. Additional Options (sold separately)

Worm composting is an incredibly efficient way to convert kitchen scraps into nutrient-rich compost for your garden. Most 'Master Gardeners' consider worm castings to be the very best compost available. Your plants will thrive with this all-natural compost. Sorting out the undigested scraps can be a messy, inconvenient chore with ordinary worm composters.
One of the best features of The Worm Factory is the complete 16 page, illustrated instruction manual.
Whether you are an expert or a beginner, the manual will assure you a successful outcome of recycling your kitchen waist and create the most nutrient rich soil for your house plants, containers and garden.
Better than the competition!
The Cascade Worm Factory® beats the competition at every step: It has a longer warranty, better instructions, better airflow and a smaller footprint compared to its competitors and imitators. It simply can't be beat. The Worm Factory® has a unique design which makes us much different from other upward migrating worm composters and here is why: The Smallest Footprint:
The Worm Factory® has the smallest footprint. It takes up 20% less floor space than larger units but there is no restriction on how many trays you can stack. The Worm Factory® is capable of holding the largest capacity in the smallest area. Expandable and Manageable:
The Worm Factory is expandable allowing for multiple trays to be stack on top of each other. As the compost shrinks, the trays shrink along with it allowing effortless, upward migration for the worms. The Worm Factory is also more manageable than other composters. Compared to the Can-o-worms trays that hold about 22.5lbs of compost, The Worm Factory’s trays hold about 12.5lb of compost which make them easy to lift and restack for people young and old. Ventilation Lid with Tips:
Some composters come with tight fitting lids. As compost processes, both gas and heat are given off which must be ventilated. If poorly ventilated, gas and heat build up and water is formed. With increased moisture in the bedding, the amount of oxygen is depleted. This fosters a chain reaction of anaerobic bacteria which creates more gas, giving off an obnoxious smell of rotten eggs.
To operate an odorless worm composter at its maximum efficiency, the bedding and food must have a controlled amount of moisture and the maximum amount of air. This combination fosters aerobic bacteria, the essential, most basic, single element which worms consume.
With The Worm Factory’s® unrestricting lid, the loose fit provides maximum ventilation for air flow to get the good bacteria for your worms and to prevent that rotten egg smell. There are also composting tips printed on the lid for a quick reference.
