It is rare that I post a podcast but this is such a great look at a powerful practice. There are so many benefits for the homesteader and gardener when it comes to farming worms. You will find that having access to these wigglers has a number of benefits. This podcast touches on all the aspects of worm farming. It even talks about feeding them to your chickens.
One of the most important parts of worm farming is to get those great worm castings that are like garden steroids. They are gold for your soil. Of course, you have to have a method to separate out the castings from the rest of your worms and their living environment. This podcast covers a method on that as well. Are you farming worms?

Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
