Integrate the animals to use as high quality feed for each other, make your own organic soil amendments, and have interesting backyard pets. This is an introductory class to learn an overview with the areas’ experts on these subjects and how they can be integrated together.
Why Use Texas Worm Ranch Castings?
Our goal is to ensure that our castings are the premium standard for the industry, in
both nutrient value and soil biology. Texas Worm Ranch commits to quality.
- Unlike other casting producers, our worms are never fed peat moss
(an unsustainable and antimicrobial food source) or just one food source of any kind.
- We custom feed a diverse mix of natural vegetative waste to produce a premium
standard of abundant biomass of beneficial soil organisms and nutrients.
- Our posted castings’ results are tested by a SoilFoodWeb- and
Dr. Elaine Ingram-approved laboratory for diversity and mass of soil biology
and nutrient cycling potential.
- We use our castings in our own organic yard and tree treatments and vegetable
production. We require the highest quality for our purposes, and pass that quality
on for our customers’ success.
- Our castings are harvested weekly and kept moist and alive to ensure you get the
highest quality and mass of biological life when applied to your property.
TWR castings have been tested by one of the leading labs in the country
