There are things that none of us think about until someone comes along and asks if we can make it. The answer is usually yes because the team here are experienced, resourceful and flexible. So when a local farmer asked if we could make worm trays the answer was yes and then the question was: what’s a worm tray? Well here’s a picture of the first batch.
The trays are filled with compost and kept nice and warm and moist so that the worms go forth and multiply in the ways that worms do. Not much of a future for their offspring of course, but a great idea on the part of our customer: it’s estimated that hundreds of millions of worms are used by anglers in the UK each year – and demand consistently far outstrips supply. Mind you, we’d better watch out that the worms don’t turn!
