What we offer  Worms  We mainly offer the Dendrobena veneta, a worm that is most commonly used for fishing because of its firm skin and its long lifespan under water. The worms are only sold in large amounts with a minimum of 100 kg. However, we have lots of contacts in The Netherlands and abroad, so when you need smaller amouts, there is a big chance that we can find the best distributor for you. When we make the worms ready for transport, they are fully cleaned and put in fresh peat. In order to safely transport them, they are put in air- permeable bags. These bags go in a crate, which we stack on a pallet. The worms are sold in different size categories, from small up until extra- large.   There is a limited availability of Eisenia fetida, the composting worm. For more information please contact us.

Welcome  Ever since Jan Hofmans started his wormbreeding company back in 1992, he has been building knowledge about breeding the worms. Much of that knowledge came from experimenting and checking how the worms reacted. By doing his own research, he came to the perfect balance on how to breed healthy worms of uniform size. A lot of the work is done by hand. This way we can constantly monitor the health and quality of the worms. Wormbreeder Hofmans is now one of the largest worm farms in the Netherlands, producing over 100.000 kg of worms every year. We breed the Dendrobena veneta, a perfect worm for fishing. There is a wide distribution for our worms, we export them to i.a. England, Finland, Poland and America. The worms are bred at our farm in Ottersum. The picture above shows our buildings and greenhouses. The buildings have a total of 5000 m². In the video you get a tour around our company and it will give you an impression of how we work.
Compost  The compost that comes from our worms, also known as “Black Gold”, is rich in the nutrients N,P,K and enhances the soil microbial community. When the worm digests its food, the compost is being encapsulated in a thin layer of slime. This causes the nutrients to gradually seep into the soil. This gives the soil its nutrients over a long time span. We have two different kinds of compost. The fine and rough compost. The compost is only sold in large amounts with a minimum of 25m³.
