This is the new, large-scale version of the premier
continuous-flow worm bin for use by cafeterias, restaurants,
and other institutions. With approximately 30 square
feet of surface area and insulated walls, it is designed
to handle at least 75 pounds of food and bedding every
day. Completely covered and verminproof. The mechanical
harvesting system makes collecting worm castings very

Earthworm and Castings Farm can help schools, institutions
and commercial businesses develop large-scale vermicomposting
operations using state-of-the-art continuous-flow
- Each module is made from 2-inch tubular steel,
which supports a grate system capable of holding
2 tons of material.
- The grate is constructed of heavy welded wire
- Power requirements: 110-volt single phase with
a GFI circuit.
- The clean out mechanism uses 2 each 110V. Electric
- Worm population: 100lb per 8 ft increment. Startup
should be no less than 50 lb. per 8 ft increment.
- All components are powder coated for a long lasting
- Optional lids and ventilation systems are available.
Benefits and Features:
- Flow through design- Organic waste in on the top
and finished Vermicompost out the bottom provide
- free. 90% of the worm population will be found
in the top 4 inches of the worm bed. Harvesting
begins 6-8 weeks after setup.
- Year around use, 365 days a year.
- Highly aerobic conditions are easily maintained
- No loss of nutrients due to seepage into the ground.
- No need to turn materials
- After initial inoculation no further worm population
will be needed. The population will propagate and
maintain ample populations to process the organic
To determine the correct size of machine an accurate
survey of daily waste to be processed will be required.
- Minimal daily maintenance required (1 hour per
The machine will need to be indoors in a heated environment
for winter use. Minimum temperature should be no less
than 50° F. No direct sun. Optimal temperatures 70-80°
Concrete or asphalt floor is required.
