It is amazing to see, just how many people are so deperate for money, that they scour the internet, looking for someones hick up.
I have more than 15 different "free" websites that I try to keep maintaied, along with raise rabbits, show rabbits.
Raise chickens and sell the eggs
Raise bee's for the education and Honey
Raise min pin, and chiwowa's
Raise African nightcrawlers
Raise European nightcrawlers
Raise Solger fly's
Raise mealworms for fishing and the chickens
I now have taken a part time job to help me pay the tax's on farming for a living.
so, the point to that is, I am over worked and underpaid,
and to have a person try to get free worms because of a glitch is just iritating, most people would just point something so trivial out, and in turn I might even send them some free worms.
This person has now filed a complaint with the BBB......It is people like him that makes people charge so much........
Please-----tell me if you saw an advertized price, a price, that you know was unreal, you would pay it much atention....
Like....8 pounds of European nightcrawlers for 40.00 that was listed on a side menu, on my home page.........after he brought it to my atention and asked, not only for the 8 pounds, but wanted a total of 16 pounds.....Talk about greed......
I could not change the typo, I tried and tried, and dont remember putting it in there. so I just deleated the whole side bar..............
So for those of you that wonder how and why I have a complait listed with the BBB, that is why. and how it came about.........

African Nightcrawlers Eudrilus Eugeniae will start shipping monday,
It has been a very long and cold winter, I and many other have lost lots of worms due to the extreem cold.
It set records at many place's including here. 2 deg. one morning, for metro Atlanta, that is unherd of.
the trucks carring the mail from post to post are not heated, and it turned out to be the weekest link, even with heat packs and insulated box's.
5 good freinds and fellow worm farmers, very large. just threw in the towel, so, this should make for an interesting year, to say the least.
I have had the phone ringing off the hook, and the email is unbearable. worm grower's and supplyers everywhere, are looking for more souce's. people wanting 400 pounds per week, 100 pounds per week and it dosent seem to stop. thats a lot of worms folks..........with that much demand, and so little supply, I had no choice but to raise my price's......I am sorry, but it cost me more to replenish my stock as well.
with the new MMJ market, it has opened people's eyes, to how good worm tea, and casting's realy are.
worms, realy do, eat my garbage, I havent paid for, or needed garbage pick up for over 4 years now. it hit 36.00 per month, that was it......thats about 450.00 per year....instead, I feed my worms my garbage.

I am always tickled by the people that call and ask for the price on a truck load of worm castings. Most of these people are well educated people, great gardeners and just looking to save money.........
Problem is, I then have to spend about an hour or more, explaining why they don't need a pickup truck full. Let me try to explain, please overlook the typo's and spelling as I am not a journalist.
For starters, most "real" worm farms in Ga. may produce a yard or even two per year, of castings. If they claim to have tons and tons of castings(worms crap), red flags and sirens should go off. Didn't they use any on their own yard and garden, why not.
I am not saying they are ling to you, just do the math....if you have 60 beds, with 10,000 worms in each one about 60,000 worms, and you harvest them every 30 days. You will get at most 30 buckets of castings...........that is a pretty good bit, maybe even a 1/3 of a yard, providing you don't use any or sell any then logically in 3 months you would have a yard. But that's only one sale of one yard, once it is gone you wouldn't have any left. There is only about 6 good harvest months out of the year in Ga. because of temp. and weather.
60 beds full of worms is a fair size, lets double it to 120,000 worms and I only know about 6 in Ga. that have that many or more. The math would say you could possibly in a perfect world, under perfect conditions, not selling any worms or castings for 6 months, you might get 4 yards of castings.
Keep in mind, with that many worms, and that much harvesting, feeding and watering, you would have to have at least 2 and likely 4 people or more helping with the up keep.
Don't get me wrong, there are a few worm farms that aculy have a yard or two for sale, but you wont find them on Craig's list for 100 per yard.
So, you are asking, how or what are the doing.......well there are lots of things, basically sifting compost. And or uneaten vermicompost.
I prefer to see the GLOW on a persons face, when they show me pictures of their, huge and bountiful crops.
and another thing.........................................the magic of worm castings.......................is....................
you only need a pound, one pound of castings will make 50 gallons of (fertilizer/tea) And that is alot of tea........................
Fertilizer is the wrong word, when you apply 10-10-10 or other fertilizers, you kill all the live organisms in your garden, raised bed or yard and give them a synthetic vitamin shot, when you eat the fruits or veggies, that is what you are eating, but what is worse.....the soil is dead and lets in all the bad micro organisms, organisms, bugs and other bad things.
When you use worm tea made from worm castings, you are doing just like 03-03-03 and can do it over and over with out burning, organic, so when you eat your bounty that is what it is. and the soil is ALIVE, with millions and millions of micro organisms killing anything bad. That is their food.....that's just the start......next year will be even better, and the next even better and so on. not at all like a fertilizer that you must apply over and over. Yes you can re apply tea over and over, but once your yard and garden comes back to life, it will maintain itself. this is the first year I have had so many tomato s, not one had brown spot, the list is endless.. I have only be totally free of all synthetics for 2 years.
back to the point, you dont need a ton of castings. that is the magic.......and there IS, a difference in castings, type, age, worms used, feed used for the worms and more......

This Friday December 21, 2012
Herron Farms of Dawsonville, will not be having an "End of the World Sale".
I am sure something is in the works, as the Myans were not dumb people, and have provided us with many importaint peice's of information. I personally believe the end of time may be close, mostly from my understanding of the book of Revelations and what we are doing to ourselves, with the Drugs and the hatred to one another. But what is Close? One Day, or many Years? Know one knows this.

I can ship just about anything, except rabbits. The only way that I have found is very expensive and prohibitive, as in avg. 500-1500 and to me, that just makes no sense. The postal service will not ship rabbits.
I have had people drive from all over, tx. mi. fl.nc.sc.tn.al. and all over Ga. Makes me feel bad.
Now about these rabbits, they are not "registered rabbits" they are pure blood rabbits, and I have "pedigree's" for them. They come from a line of Grand champs and Registered rabbits.
The trail to get a rabbit is a fairly long one. take a look at the ARBA page. they have to be shown and win several "legs" to even be considered. Then you take the rabbits to a judge of your choice and pay a small fee for them to examine the rabbit. and then the tat. the right ear.
Then, you typically "breed" that rabbit, and sell the off spring, but never the Registered rabbit, that is your money maker. Once the rabbit has a registration number tattoo'ed in his right ear, any one can look up the numbers, and see the info. on that rabbit.
By being a member of ARBA, I am able to buy stamps and pedigree books, I am also able to fill out the pedigree's under penalty for lie's. But the pedigree is no more than a "linage" of that animal, It is up to you to turn the rabbit into a Grand champ.
Hope that helped some.
