Barlow Worm composting uses composted cow manure as the base and food source for the Eisenia Fetida earthworm, commonly known as the red wiggler. The manure is hot composted to a temp above 140 degrees F to kill potential pathogens and weed seeds before feeding to our worms. Worm castings provide a rich organic fertilizer full of microbial life. Thousands of beneficial microorganisms that include bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and nematodes live in worm castings. These microorganisms are the building block of healthy soil and vegetation. The worm tea you create is a natural superfood for plants and an excellent lawn fertilizer.

Our Worm Tea Kit, contains 3 quarts of worm castings and two reusable burlap tea bags.
You may use less or more castings to brew different quantities or more potent tea. We recommend two cups of worm castings/ 5 gallon of water.
For use on lawns, we recommend 25 gallons per acre, four times a year.
Each kit contains enough worm castings to make 6 Worm Tea Bags.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Add two cups of worm castings per burlap tea bag. Soak one burlap bag of worm castings in 5 gallons of unchlorinated water for a period of 12-24 hours. Aerate the tea while brewing for best results, but not required. Aeration can be accomplished using an aquarium pump or air compressor. Add one ounce of unsulphered molasses to the brew for best results. Agitate occasionally during the brewing process. Apply as a foliar spray/soil drench within 24 hours of brewing. Dump the used castings out the burlap bag after brewing tea, rinse burlap bag and allow to dry, reuse. Store unused castings away from sun light.
