UPDATE: We've had our red wigglers now for about a year in one of our raised bed gardens and they're still thriving. The soil in that bed is ready to be moved to other beds for vegetable growing. It is so rich and light and in 500% better than what we started with. The worms aren't exactly talking to us, but they sure seem like our choice of organic matter we discard into their home.

My wife and I USED to be very organic... we ground our own flour and made our own whole grain bread. We made yogurt, sourdough culture, dried our own fruit, used honey in excessive quantities. But as we grew older, we got less and less organic and more convenience-oriented. We're not eating white bread and cheetos, but we haven't ground flour in a few years. This past summer, we wanted to grow some vegetables in our raised vegetable beds on our back property. The soil was pretty compacted - lots of clay here in northern California... so we looked into composting.

We ran across the Live Earthworms at Amazon and thought - why not? Let's try this. We ordered a bunch of Red Wrigglers from these folks and got them in a few short days. They were mailed in newspaper and, while I didn't count them, they all looked none-the-worse from their trip across the country from Pennsylvania. We followed the package instructions and put them in our raised beds and now - many months later - they're doing great. We feed them about every week with cutup vegetable trimmings, coffee grounds, eggshells, some wet newspaper and these guys are living large. But even better is what they're doing to our raised beds.... the soil they've lived in is soft, loamy, nicely textured, and looks and feels about ten times better than before these guys called it home.

I was not sure ordering worms for the first time, I was not sure quite what to expect being that I live in an area that 2"deep is solid cap rock. We created raised beds for vegetables, bringing in 12 inches of dirt. They arrived in a timely manner, 4 days. Large bag for price, even with the filler more worms than I could count. Upon opening the bag all worms were still moist and moving around, after I placed them in the dirt, immediately they all began to disappear. Directions included were followed besides worms being divided into 4 raised vegetable garden beds instead of keeping in one large colony. Overall great service and worms seem to be acting like worms. I included some photos to give a better visual of what to expect being that there is a limited amount of information on this product. My photos represent a 1.lb bag.

Judging from some of the negative reviews on these worms I think there are a lot of people that don't understand Amazon is not shipping these worms from their multiple warehouses, these are being shipped directly from Uncle Jim in Spring Grove, PA, which is south-central Pennsylvania. Since I live within 100 miles of Spring Grove I am comfortable ordering these, mine were shipped on Monday as promised and I received them the very next day. The heavy bag was full of wiggly, healthy, and happy worms.

If you want to receive worms alive:
* Don't order them in the middle of summer. Really. Even if they have a short journey there are too many things that can go wrong. Instead check findworms.com to see if there might be a worm farm within driving distance.
* Order from a company fairly local no matter what time of the year it is. If you are on the west coast then you are taking your chances ordering from a Pennsylvania company even in cooler months. I once had a Priority Mail package take over a month to go from Maryland to California. Good thing it wasn't worms! Check out vermifactory.com in Oregon, among many, many others, just do a google search. But make sure you are ordering from a worm farm and not just a company that is having worms drop shipped from across the country! If you can't find a local worm farm try PlanetNatural, they cost more but ship two-day FedEx.
* If you order from Uncle Jim give your mail person a heads up. Tell them you are expecting a Priority Mail delivery of live worms (the box is clearly marked as Perishable) and ask that they deliver them to your door. Then tape a note in your mailbox to remind your carrier. If you can't be home have them delivered at your work or at a neighbor's. It doesn't take long for live worms to die in a hot mailbox.

I purchased the worms a few months ago. They arrived alive and are still going strong. Also, they have produced alot of new little babies! Great way to make some great compost for your garden!

I ordered these earthworms a week ago, not knowing what to expect since I had never before ordered live worms, or live anything. Anyhow, the worms arrived at the postoffice this morning and they called me to come pick them up. I already had two composting bins at home prepared with a layer of sod and some ejected vegetable/fruit pulp from my juicer. So after bringing home the package of earthworms, I gingerly opened it. They were packed with great care. I split the contents into each of the compost bins. There were a lot of healthy looking red worms. They slid into the sod right away. I hope to have some good, healthy, nutritious and rich compost in a few weeks in which to grow my wheatgrass!

The worms looked very healthy and were very well packed in a bag along with soil. The bag was then placed in a box surrounded with shredded paper. The earthworms were of all different sizes.

This is an excellent outfit to purchase the earthworms from. Its definitely worth the cost. It took a week to receive the worms after placing the order.
