Little Ponderosa Worm Ranch

I've got worms!

My name is Jesse, and I started raising red wigglers 5 years ago as a hobby to support my fishing addiction. Being an avid angler with a boat on Lake Wylie, SC, I got tired of paying retail prices for redworms. I'm a panfishing addict, and a school of white perch, or a bunch of bedding bream, can make bait at retail prices seem like it does not make any financial sense. So I ordered my first batch of red wigglers, and started raising them in plastic totes. I made several mistakes along the way, but have figured out how to effectively breed large quantities of redworms cheaply. I no longer go broke buying bait, and I can teach you how to do this as well. 

I'm happy to be North Carolina's choice for quality composting and bait worms. I look forward to hearing from you! As you see in the picture, I raise my redworms in raised beds outside. I've had great success with this system. The worms can even survive the cold blue ridge mountain winter, if given the right mix of compost and feed.
