CONGRATULATIONS TO YELM EARTHWORM & CASTINGS FARM FOR WINNING GOVERNOR’S AWARD

Yelm Earthworm, located on Lawrence Lake Road, uses red wiggler worms to decompose manure.

‘Franklin Roosevelt said ‘when the soil dies, the nation dies,'” Moyagh said. “It’s time for people to wake up and start stepping forward.’

One product that the farm sells is a smaller home casting kit, in which homeowners can put their food scraps in and purchase red wigglers to break them down.

Currently, the farm sells their products to approximately 60 stores in Washington state, and starting in 2008 will be exporting out of Washington,” quoting the Nisqually Valley News.


YELM EARTHWORM & CASTINGS FARM

Hours of Operation:
Monday Friday 9am to 5pm
Saturday – 10am to 5pm

We are located, south of Yelm, WA, at 14741 Lawrence Lake Rd. SE.

From Yelm, follow Bald Hills Rd. toward Lawrence Lake.

You’ll come to a “Y” at about 5 miles. Bald Hills Rd. curves sharply left; you want to go straight to the stop sign (about 40 yards further). Turn right onto Lawrence Lake Rd. We are around the first curve, on the right. Look for the signs and the beautiful garden areas and the large white buildings.

BE SURE TO TELL KELAN & HUNT YOU READ ABOUT THEIR GOVERNOR’S AWARD ON THE YELM COMMUNITY BLOG!
