The Arizona Worm Farm is a sustainable family-owned farm on a mission to turn garbage into food. We don’t use magic wands. We use insects. Our zero-waste model enlists the power of Red Wiggler Worms, Black Soldier Flies, and hot compost piles to turn valley waste into natural gardening products, vegetable starts, and produce.
We’re determined to use this circular process to combat climate change, divert waste from landfills, and use regenerative soil efforts to put carbon back in the ground where it belongs!
Our favorite thing, outside of worms, is educating fellow southwest gardeners. Our team of expert Arizona gardeners and vermicompost gurus will happily answer any questions and further educate curious eco-nerds on waste reduction techniques, carbon capture in soil, and regenerative agriculture.
Please note: Our classes are on hold due to Covid, but we are working on virtual classes. If you need any assistance with worms or your backyard garden, please contact us and let us know how we can help!
We imagined the Arizona Worm Farm in 2014 as a proof of concept for a zero-waste, fully self-sustaining farm for ten families fueled only by sunshine, rainwater, and other people's garbage.
We wanted to prove that we can live in harmony with the earth by creating an environment that provides us with food, shelter, and income while positively impacting our land and environment. In 2017, we launched our concept with one worm breeding trailer.
That investment has grown to include:
