Just a quick note to let you know I received the African
worms yesterday. They seemed to be in good condition and they look happy in their new home. I am pleased with
the worms and with the great service you provided.
Thank you so much
Today I received the African nightcrawlers and I'm really happy because
I order one pound of worms and I received more the one pound looks like I received pound and a half or more I don't have a
scale but I can tell you there are more than a thousand worms is a good service. people are so friendly and whatever
they promised they do thank you so much I'm going to recommend all my friends and I going to order some more different worms.

I received the order yesterday and just now had
time to write. It is nice to know that there are people in the worm industry that can deliver what they say. The worms arrived
healthy and ready for the bin. The packing was superb and delivery as promised. Thanks you so much for making my day. You
were fast to reply to my emails and very pleasant to deal with. Thanks for the pen. It adds that special touch on a product
that was as advertised.Other vendors
that I have had dealings with were not as honest. One I have emailed twice after their delivered product was unsatisfactory
and I have yet to receive a return email. Fancy websites don’t always deliver what they advertise or what they preach
while knocking the other vendors. Another delivered ½ pound when 1 pound was purchased. And so on and so on. Thanks again for being honest. I will purchase more in the future.

I have to let you guys know that I was astounded at the quality and quantity of
the African night crawlers. I ordered a pound and wasn't expecting a whole lot of worms but the day I got them and opened
the bag I freaked out. This had to been at least 2 or 3 pounds. There were what looked like atleast 800-1000. And they weren't
all babies like you would think. Over half were full grown monsters. The other half were medium sized plus a lot of
babies. I plan to order a lot more in a few weeks. On

Tuesday, June 19, 2012 1:11 AMMike and Dee Blaha: On Fri. the 15th, I
retrieved my box of African nightcrawlers from my mailbox. I had become so engrossed with household chores that I was unable
to watch closely for my mail carrier. It is very likely that they remained in it for approx. 1 to 2 hrs. However,
when I brought them to my patio and slit the securing tape, I saw clear evidence of lively, healthy worms. I am
very pleased with your 6 p's: 1.Your product; 2.Your packaging, including cloth(which allows aeration with no heat
absorption) rather than plastic sacks used by other worm farmers; 3. Your procedures for preparation/maintenance; 4.
Your pen-a free gift; 5. Your personality that accompanies each transaction and finally 6. Your prices which
may be the lowest available. Certainly, I plan to order from you again. Ministerially
yours, O'Neal Ozen

Unfortionatally the worms are very hungry. I am simply amazed, they turned about 5 inches of peet moss into pulp
in a day and a half. I hope the worms like squash i'll have alot of that pretty soon.. LOL Thanks
and very good buisness..
I will be ordering Hybred red worms

I ordered red wigglers from you a year or so ago, and went from one small
bin to 3 moderate sized, and they are doing very well.... plus I have given away a couple pounds and used some for fishing
(I know, how cruel! :-O )
Well, today I just ordered Africans :) and I am ordering from your company
because I had great results from the previous order. The worms had arrived quickly and healthy and I experienced no negative
If you have any advice on care for the Africans I would greatly appreciate
Hi Mike and
My husband loves the worm farm we purchased from you and
checks on the little wigglers all the time. They are doing great! We are highly recommending worm farms to our friends
and family. Now Scott is just sure we need a few rabbits to feed our worms.
Your guide arrived promptly and we can't wait to read and learn from it.We would very much like
to take a tour of your farm.

Dear Mike, I received my order today at 16:00. The worms were alive
and kicking, very good packed. To be honest
with you I was afraid
they would be all dead. You proved me veryyyyy wrong. They are
stored for the night in two
containers with shredded newspaper and
will be split tomorrow in five bins, one pound per bin. If you have
can you send me pictures of your outdoor wooden bins.
As soon as this batch is settled, I will be ordering some more
worms. Thanks for the great service and patience after my panic

Dee, My name is Megan and I spoke to you yesterday (Wed) regarding my problem
with placing an order from another vendor. May I first thank you for calling me back, helping me out, and making me
feel like I was a valued customer BEFORE was had even placed an order. Thanks for answering my crazy questions and being
patient with me. Needless to say, I canceled my order with the previous vendor (I was uncertain based on complaints
I had read about him anyhow.) and placed my order with you. I'm sure you will receive the order and I again thank you
for your help! I look forward to doing continued business with you.
I recently purchased worm castings for
my small vegetable garden in Spring Hill.
You were very polite and professional in helping me with my questions
both the gentleman and the two young girls on Friday.
You may advertise being a small family business but you were
big in helping me.
God bless you.
This is the first time I am using worm casting and will let you know
how I make out.
Pet that shaggy dog for me.
Thank you Mike
The African Nightcrawlers arrived
today. They were in great shape and I was very pleased with the condition and the generous count. They seem quite
content in their new bin. I've seen no indication of any tendency to migrate. I've got them bedded in a mixture
of Black Soldier Fly residue and newsprint. My Eisenia Foetida seem to thrive in it and I'm hoping the Eudrilus eugenia
will too! I keep a blog about raising Black Soldier Flies and will soon be doing an entry about stocking your worms
in my bin. I'll make it a point to mention Best Buy Worms and how happy I was with your product and service when I do!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I really do love
your company. I have been ordering worms for a while now. I searched the net quickly the first time-ordered enough to keep
a fish alive as well as put some in a new garden we had just started. Next order, I had time to search a bit...and found you!
I don't think I will EVER use another company. Your worms are much more vigorous and lively! Your prompt shipping and outstanding
communication/customer service are added bonuses that will definitely keep me from looking any further! Thanks again so much!
Take Care and keep up the AWESOME job!!
I'm happy to have started your day off on a good note! YES, you may absolutely use
my words! Trust me, if I ever stumble across anyone looking for worms, I will send them your way!!!
Hi, just wanted to let you know that I received all the worms in excellent shape! None died and they
seem to be acclimating well in the compost bin. I was worried of having them shipped to Michigan in the winter but they made
it perfectly with excellent packaging.
I had a question though, how do I tell the difference between the red worms vs.
africans? Since they were bed run they all are similar in size and it would be nice to know the difference. Do
you know the approximate ratio of the ones you sent me? Also I split the worms in half, one in each bin. One bin
I had used old potting soil from the summer time, is this ok or do you recommend I replace it with newspaper/peat moss mixture
since it might be more decomposed already?
Feel free to use this in the testimonials and if you want I would be
happy to write a better one :)
What a wonderful way to start my day, thank YOU! May I post your note
on our web site?

Hello. My name is Chris Greer. Today I received
my order of worms (2 lbs. of Eisenias) that I recently ordered from your company. I just want to say that I am extremely impressed
with your company. 2 days ago, I received an e-mail from your company saying that my order had been shipped out, and today
I received my worms. Also, I was also impressed with the quality of worms I received. These worms were a lot bigger that the
ones that I recently ordered from another company. After doing some research about that company, I found out that they do
not come highly recommended with orders, quality of worms, or customer service. That is why I decided to try business with
your company, and boy am I glad I did. Not only did I get bigger worms, and faster delivery, but you also send 2 papers with
advice on how to properly raise and care for worms. I will certainly be doing business with you again, soon. Before I go,
I would like to ask a question. If this worm bin goes well, I would like to start another bin of worms, only this time with
African Nightcrawlers. After some research, I discovered that the African Nightcrawler is supposed to produce as much, if
not more, worm casting. Can you verify if this is correct? Also, if I do decide to start a bin of Africans, can I raise them
the same way as Eisenias, or do they require another method? Any help would be appreciated. Again, thanks for the great service.
I will certainly be doing business with you again, and I will certainly tell all my friends about your company.
(HI Chris, to answer your questions, the African
castings are superior and you can raise them the same way you raise Eisenias.)
You made my day, can I put your wonderful words on our web site!
Feel free to use my e-mail for your
site. I hope I produce worms as good as yours, eventually.

Loved the worms. The garden mix has been great at composting. I had
worm-tastrophy when I followed the composters directions that said
"let the worms acclimate a day before feeding".
The bottom tray fed on
the top tray, the top tray worms went a'lookin for food. Had a few dead ones in the AM.
Your shipment was tooo good for my composter, heh heh. They arrived
healthy and wiggling. I like the vertical composter
for fishing worms,
but I have decided to set up a bedrun of the garden mix as I have a lawn
care product using
worms in mind. So send some more of your wonderful
worms. I put in for another 5lbs.

Hey Dee & Mike,
Have spent the last two days pouring through blogs and worm forums trying to
get an understanding of what the heck was going on with this crazy "lady". On behalf of those of us who have
enjoyed great service from you, I almost feel like I need to apologize for her behavior. I suppose some people just
don't understand the tight profit margins business owners are operating under today. I have had some small success selling
castings over the Internet, but it's not like I could give up my day job at this point. Much as I would like to!
Just wanted to throw my two cents in and let you know that people like her are in the minority. I will continue to be
a customer of yours and will also continue to recommend you when people ask for reliable worm sellers. My worms are still
plugging along and now that warmer weather is here, I hope to see them take off. Hope the rest of your year is less stressful and
that most of the crazy people will find someone else to bother.
Best of luck
for the remaining year.

The worms showed up this evening and were fine. I have them in their new home and they all burrowed
Thanks so much for the email and I will spread the word to my friends. The mail lady just had to know
what I was getting from a Company that had a name Rabbits Etc. and Best buy worms. I told her it was baby bunnies and
her mouth flew wide open. Then I showed her the worms and she wants to get some for her husband to be. So you
never know where and how the word gets around. Thought you might get a kick out of that one.

I purchased from you are starting to eat me out of house and home. I have been raising EFs for the past few years and was
used to their feeding schedules. I think the ANCs are eating twice as much as their EF cousins. Guess I will need to make
more trips to the horse stables across the river in order to keep up with them. Can't complain though. The more they consume
the more castings I end up with.
Thanks a million for the help, Buddy Bourne

We received our worms on Friday 5/16 and they were in good shape. The next morning
we had lost a few, and several were limp and lifeless... but by Sunday, after they had settled in and had a bite to eat, they
were all looking really good.
Thanks for providing good service at a good price!
Sure, you can
share my note on your web site. Good service is getter harder to find these days, it's a real treat to have a friendly,
no hassle transaction.
Just wanted to let you know.. that the worms
arrived in PERFECT condition!!
Well packed and handled with care. They have found their new home with wet shredded
paper the peat they were packaged with and lil compost waste ( just a little ground up egg shell and coffee grounds).... That
had been waiting for them 48 hours prior to their arrival....to be a very happy fit for them.
It's been over 24
hours now in their new home and they are already doing what worms to best!
If I ever need any more.... and I know
others who are thinking of getting worms... I'll send my business your way.
Thank you for a very pleasant transaction,
great communication and instructions.

Thank you so much. The Africans arrived just moments ago...and I must say that I am VERY pleased!
When you guys send out a pound of worms, you send out a full pound! (Or in this case, three pounds). All are healthy and very
active. Having such a broad range in maturity is a very good thing. Younguns to eat lots, larger ones to breed - as I said,
I'm very happy with the shipment. As I add beds and have need of more stock, rest assured that you will be the first
people I contact.
As to a testimonial, you most certainly may use my words. It is
refreshing to be able to give glowing reports about good and helpful people nowadays, and I certainly don't mind doing just
that. With the help of folks like yourself, I really would like to make a small difference and do a bit of good.
I intend to keep my business with folks who have proven themselves, and you certainly have done that.
