Essential Equipment for small scale worm farming

With a little enthusiasm, it is possible to manage a 4000 sq FT (400m²) worm production unit which would be a full time job for 1 person and has a potential turnover of over £3,000 per month, with the following equipment—

  • Manure barrow
  • Large shovel
  • Landscaping rake
  • Manure fork
  • Concrete mixer
  • Mobile picking table
  • Poly bag sealer
