Come Learn to Build A Home Worm Farm!

We love to compost! There is something SO satisfying about seeing banana peels, yard leaves, or that broccoli you forgot about in the fridge turn into something that nourishes your garden.

If you have always been intrigued with composting, but have no idea where to start then we have some exciting news for you!

Saturday, April 30th will be will hosting a Composting Class. The class will give you the knowledge of how to compost, plus you will walk away with your own home worm farm that is the perfect size for kitchen scraps.

When: Saturday, April 30th at 9:30 am
Where: Jako Farm
Who: Jako Farm members get first priority to register. Class registration will open to the public on April 7th if there are still slots available.
How much: $75 per family (only 2 adults per family group), the class fee, a home worm farm (with tub, worms, and bedding), and one Fed N Happy Worm Farmer t-shirt

How long: 1.5 hours
Did you know worm castings (worm poop) is loaded with minerals and microbes that not only stimulate plant growth but create higher yields, faster grow rates, healthier root systems and better quality produce? When you put good back into the Earth, the Earth returns the favor.
Our worm farmer friend, Dan, from Fed N Happy in Hutchinson will be teaching the class. His expertise will leave you feeling confident about how to feed your worms and how to use your compost that has been supercharged by the worms.

Whether you’re wanting to perk up that vegetable garden, get better blooms from your landscaping, or simply find a way to compost your veggies scraps instead of sending them to the landfill, this class is for you!

Additional worm bins, starter mixes, and red wiggler worms will be available for purchase.

The class will open to the public April 7th, so sign up early to ensure a seat!

Story From the Farm

Calving came a few days early this year! Uno was our first mama of the year to give birth. Ironically, Uno received her name because she was the first calf to be born in her season. We named her calf, Ceann which means one in Irish. Tulip also gave birth to a heifer calf named Clover.

We walked everyone up to the milking parlor to check the mamas’ milk and everyone is doing great! It will still be a couple of weeks until we have fresh milk in the farm store. We’ll let you know when it’s available!

Here’s to excitement of new birth and learning new things!
