MidAmerica Compost Co 100% Organic Worm Castings.

ABOUT OUR WORM CASTINGS AND HOW WE PRODUCE THE BEST ORGANIC FERTILIZER IN THE MIDWEST. 

MidAmerica Compost Co.'s Worms Produce the Best Organic Fertilizer. I started out over 2 years ago trying to produce the best Worm Castings in the world for my own garden and plants. Mainly for my Mexican Lime Tree and Meyers Lemon Tree. Since we are located in the MidWest, growing citrus is challenging. I started off with a couple of 18 Gallon Rubbermaid Bins like these. This proved problematic largely because of weight and moisture control. Albeit you can produce Worm Castings this way, it's just not very efficient and hard on your back. After a couple sales, I graduated to the Worm Factory 360. The Worm Factory 360 worked okay for a little while. Some of the issue I was having were moisture control, airflow, and the overall size of the bin. I needed something larger. After a lot of research I happened onto the WigWam Worm bin. 

Our Red Wigglers are raised with a balanced diet of carbon and nitrogen to provide the richest vermicompost/Worm Castings. We work with local coffee shops, neighbors with organic household waste, and local organic farmers throughout St. Louis to obtain “selected” feedstock for our worms. We are selective in our choice of feedstock so that we can produce the most nutrient rich and pH balanced worm castings for the market. Then, once we have collected our feedstock we determine how much is ready for the worms and what needs additional time to decompose. After the feedstock has been properly decomposed we finish the process with the worms. We use this three step process in production of our Worm Castings.

FEEDSTOCK

Our feedstock starts by obtaining biodegradable matter that will provide optimum worm habitat and yield great plant growing results. In selecting our feedstock we maintain the balance of carbons and nitrogen’s in order to provide the very best worm castings on the market. In addition, we use organic matter that will decompose readily and quickly so that the worms will be able to digest the food more quickly. Our local coffee shops provide us with coffee grounds and the husk from the bean. Our local organic farmers provide use with damaged produced and expired produce which is also used as worm food. We also have an unlimited supply of horse manure that is used in our recipe for the worms. This is how we select the feedstock that is given to our worms. This directly affects the quality of the worm castings. Our worms are fed a consistent diet, on a schedule, and our world class Worm Castings are harvested on a schedule. You will not find a better fertilizer for your plants, gardens, or cannabis than worm castings produced by MidAmerica Compost Co.

DECOMPOSING ORGANIC MATTER

The decomposition of organic matter can be done solely by the worms. Because of demand for our castings, we use a system with “vessel” composters to assist the worms by making our feedstock more digestible. This also increases the amount of beneficial microbial life and fungi.  We use vessel composters to gain control over production, provide working storage for organic matter not yet ready for worm food, and enhance and retain as much nutrient value as possible in our worm castings. Our vessel composter is on a 14 day cycle and allows us to provide new feedstock for the worms over the next two week period. Once the vessel composter is finished, the feedstock goes to the worms, and the vessel composter is reloaded and back on another 14 day cycle. Our current capacity for the vessel composter is 24 cubic feet or 20 bushels of feedstock. This is about the same as six 30-gallon trash bags of feedstock that goes to our worms in their bins.

Hello Josh:

I have very much enjoyed your YouTube videos. Of particular interest was the video reviewing the Worm Wigwam. In that video you stated you would be making a second video concerning bin management and feed stock. I am very interested in see that video. Do you have any idea when you will produce this video.

I have composted for 30 years and own a Worm Wigwam. Of all my vermicomposting endeavors, the Worm Wigwam has been the most challenging. I keep the WW in a garage and have a difficult time keeping the bin sufficiently cool in the summertime. I live in Louisville Kentucky where the summers are similar to those in St. Louis. Any suggestions. Thank you for your help.

Hopefully I will have some new material up this fall/winter. I think I have spoken with you but if not, Feel free to give me a call with any questions on the WigWam 678-316-7554

Thanks for your video. I have a home operation, feeding the worms partially finished compost out of my CompoTumbler plus food scraps. I am disappointed in the amount of vermicompost I get. The worms seem happy and reproductive. Temperatures not great, but ok. Have you found any problems with the mechanical aspects of the Worm Wigwam that may be keeping the solids from flowing through from top to bottom as they should? thanks for your time

Joshua Vinson

Actually I have. The WigWam is a little more labor intensive than one might believe based on some of the ads. Often times you can develop “bridging” above the grate (the bottom of the composter). This will limit the amount falling down at harvest time. To correct this (if this is whats happening in your bin) you have to either lie down and reach in there to free up the bridge OR use a tool to reach in there. Moisture, bedding type, and harvest schedule all play a small part in this too but sometimes the bridging is inevitable. I hope this helps!
