J & R Worm Farm
James Henderson sells colored and non-colored worms by mail order that can be used for fishing bait and also sells compost worms and earthworm castings for gardening. His multi-colored worms are all-natural (no chemicals) and guaranteed to be alive upon arrival. Henderson, a longtime EnergyUnited member, started his Lexington-based business after researching on how to improve his garden soil. He discovered that earthworm castings can enrich and re-vitalize soil and began raising European Night Crawlers and Red Wigglers. He sells a cup of colored earthworms for $5 and a cup of non-colored worms for $3.50. He has new colors on the way, and sells worm castings for $3 per pound.
