is this easy to use

Hi alia: Thank you kindly for your interest. The Tumbleweed Worm Cafe is quite easy to use and very quick to install. Once you have setup your worm farm unit, added in started soil with 1000 Worms ( worm species: composting Worms/ Red Wrigglers/ Night Crawlers) and then start by adding in your organic food waste. There are 3 working trays, as they get filled up with rich compost - empty and feed your garden/plants with rich fertilizer...that easy! Periodically, drain your base tray by opening the tap (included) - this liquid is a rich natural fertilizer for your plants. Please feel free to reach out to us directly @ 1-855-215-6858 or sales@ftrproducts.ca for additional support

Can this be used without worms, like regular compost pile?

I guess it could. But worms really add so much benefit, I can't see why you would leave them out.

Love my worm bin!
The design is well thought out and just right, very stable so kids or pets can't knock over and built very sturdy. My worms are happy and growing good and there is no smell at all. I love that there are separate bins I can add as needed. I'm glad I chose this one over others I was looking at, it's perfect!

The worm cafe is great. Compact construction. Super easy to use. It is very easy to put together. When balanced properly there is no real smell. Just smells like fresh dirt. Doesn't look ugly. Design keeps rodents out. Love that you can easily get the worm wine (water run off) to add to your water when watering plants. You can easily expand your cafe. Love working the composting and raising worms for my chickens or for fishing.

This is a larger home worm farm kit. It has a capability of three working trays and recommends starting with 1000 worms. The construction of the kit is sturdy and could be used indoors or outdoors. It's a great way to recycle all kinds of food scraps and make compost and worm tea for gardens or plants. We have not set this up yet cause it is too hot here right now. With the plastic construction, I am afraid it would be too hot for the worms to survive. Recommend for cooler climate or indoor use. Comes with starter bedding and a drip free tap to drain ihe worm tee. The only assembly needed is to snap on legs and screw on the tap. Comes with detailed instructions to help you get started with your farm. It is very well made out of recycled plastic.

If you want to raise worms this is an easy way to get started. You will need to purchase your worms and worm bed separately but everything else is included. It sets up in minutes and you end up with a four level farm ready to go. The instructions are enough to get you going. The unit can be used for meal worms as well as red wiggler type worms. The end result should be rich moist soil, lots of worms and worm tea which can be drained off through the convenient spout at the bottom.

This is a well made and well thought out system. I have tried to raise earthworms in the past (mainly for fish bait) with limited success at best. So, I decided to up my game with this system and also generate some great fertilizer from the compost as an added bonus. The system is really simple to assemble and comes with a detailed instruction manual. Being a novice to this process, I had some issues understanding exactly how to prepare the various trays for the worms and for the food scraps. Most of my issues revolved around the third (sometimes called the "extra") tray. I watched several on line videos and think I have it figured out. This system does not come with the worms - you will need to order them separately. Fortunately for me, I had already ordered my worms and they came in the same day as the kit. I am impressed with the kit and the way all the components went together and the way the system works. Really looking forward to raising some worms and generating some great fertilizer.

What an upgrade for us. We were using a plastic tote with holes in the lid and in another container so it would be tilted. It was also a pain to take the worm casings out without removing the worms. With this one here the worm casings “flow” to the bottom so I can use the dirt in the garden. Plus I now have the ability to creat worm tea that is supposed to be great fertilizer and organic to boot. Assembly was easy, however they mention to use a worm blanket, I had no idea what a worm blanket was, no mention of it in the manuals that it is something else to order. I had to go on line to figure it out, basically a jute type cover you put on the top of your food scraps to keep it dark and moist. Wish they had included on in the starter kit. The worm bedding that come with it is very rich and has that quality dirt smell to it, no doubt this is top notch stuff for the worms. We got our worms several years ago from the local college that was doing some environmental engineering experiments for free. Also the local 4H group point us to others who had some for free to get you started, ask around I was surprised at how many places have free composting worms, just need to ask. All you need to do is add worms, garbage food scraps, water occasionally for the worm tea. Much better then what I had before!

Excellent product
Arrived quickly and was incredibly easy to set up. I also purchased the blanket, sold separately. My worms just arrived today and have been settled into the farm. Can't wait for them to start processing some kitchen scraps!
