Have you ever thought of worm farming, or even knew there was such a thing?! I heard of this several years ago, and like all ‘good homeschool moms’, I bought a book about it. ) We live on a lake and know dozens of serious gardeners so I thought this would be a perfect home business for at least one of my kids, only problem was I could not get anyone to get excited about it!!?! I still think it is a great idea!
This is a great thing if you have boys. There are different types of worms to farm and different methods. If you live near fishing areas night crawlers are what you need. You can sell them to local stores/gas stations or even put a sign out in your yard.
You can also farm worms that will create GREAT compost. You can market this compost which is called castings. Or you can sell the worms themselves to local gardeners. Here are just a few You Tube videos, there are dozens of others. Gather your kids around and watch!
