About Dirt Maker
We got into the worm business with 5 pounds of worms in the spring of 1998. The worm population exploded, and within a couple years, we had 2000 sq ft of worm beds in an 8000 sq ft barn.
I originally gave the worm farm my wife's name, calling it Elaine’s North Cascade Worm Farm. I later changed the name to Acme Worm Farm because living in Acme WA reminded me of the fantastic roadrunner cartoons in which all the weapons and explosives were branded “Acme.” We started the website acmewormfarm.com in 2001.
We stopped growing worms in 2003 when we moved back to Nevada, but continued to sell worms that our friends grew. Then we sold the website and going concerns to our very good Tucson worm farming friends, Tom and Dorothy in 2004.
We put dirtmaker.com on the internet in 2009, and our first customer bought two DM14 worm bins in September of that year.
