There are worm castings, and then, there are Buckaroo Organic Worm Castings. These premium, artisan worm castings offer an excellent all-in-one soil amendment, which is OIM listed for organic gardening, and safe around children and pets. Since the beginning of time, earthworms have converted organic matter into humus-rich soil with plant nutrients and revitalized soil biology. Worm castings are the “original” fertilizer, and they remain the purest and best quality plant foods today, adding beneficial microorganisms, nutrients and organic matter to the soil. Buckaroo worm castings are carefully hand-crafted using a one-year process. We feed our worms a special balanced diet. Our primary feedstock is organic compost and humus instead of grains or other non-beneficial feed stocks. We hand-weed our worm beds rather than use heavy machinery which may contaminate our products and we regularly apply a proprietary blend of beneficial amendments to the worm beds. The result is a superior product that is readily available to plants, and helps worn-out and depleted soils come alive in an all-natural, sustainably safe way.
