We run a small vegatable operation. We basically starve for organic matter because we no longer have animals on the farm. Manure used to be free for the taking even from other farms, but now days it is either used on the farm or it cost.
So,,, after playing with a tiny vermicomposting set up I got to wondering if we could put off enough production with worms to be of major use to us on the farm. I saw 40 pound bags of castings of 25.00 the other day and thought wow. Then I saw how much the worms cost!
So do you think this is worth messing with for production purposes?
I was thinking flow through systems but am concerned about overwintering. We would need thousands of pounds a year.
