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......

I was out in the wildcat creek tract the other day, and came across a dog......Not just any dog, this dog was tied to a log, right at the exact spot my gps had led me, I was on a totally different quest. The dog was left, tied to a huge log, but got loose, there was an empty bag of dog food (new bag) close to her, no water. knowing better, I brought her home with me anyway. Turns out to be one of the best dog's I have ever seen, she seems well trained. Protective but not vicious, house broke, stays right beside me,
likes to chase a toy and brings it back, I have 6 chiwowa's and she dosent get bothered by them. I found her close to the Dawson Forest. She seems like a brindal lab, contact me for more info.

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.
