Thank you for reviewing our Shipping Information page!  We have our products broken into two categories: Worm Orders and Other Products; shipping information for both is contained below with any special notes located on the individual product page within the Shop Tab


Our worms are hand-harvested and separated from the bedding prior to being weighed and packaged in a breathable shipping bag with enough bedding, consisting of peat moss and coconut coir, to ensure their safe travel during home transfer time.

Shop Pick Up:

All worm orders must be received by Friday Noon in order to be hand-harvested and ready for pick up on the following Monday only.

Due to the nature of worm harvesting, and for the safety and health of the live animal, we only harvest once a week.

We are located at  24411 E Joseph Ave, Otis Orchards WA. Please see the map on the Contact Us page for location and shop hours.

Worm Shipment:

All worm orders must be received by Friday Noon in order to be shipped the following Monday (or Tuesday if Monday is a holiday) via USPS Priority Mail within the continental United States (typically 3 days or less delivery time). We only ship on Mondays or Tuesdays to ensure that the worms do not sit in the postal system over the weekend.

They are clearly marked "live worms / perishable'.

Receipt of Worm Shipment:

You will receive a tracking number when your worms are shipped so you can prepare for their arrival.

Please make arrangements to either be home to receive your worms, available to pick up your worms at the post office or to have them held at the post office.

It is very important not to leave your worms exposed to direct sunlight or extreme temperatures for even short periods of time.
