Our mealworms, unlike most insect farms, are fed a diverse and varied diet of fresh fruits and vegetables creating a highly nutritious chicken treat for your feather babies. To get our discounted $16 bi-weekly mealworm subscription service, click HERE.
We ship on the second and last Monday of each month. Local pick-ups are in Bucksport, ME and can be arranged on a Monday or Tuesday.
Backorders take 2-3 weeks to fulfill in most cases. When we opened orders in May we sold out in four hours. I suggest you backorder now, or sign up to get notified by entering your email below. Thanks for supporting our little farm on a little mountain in Maine.

Our giant mealworms count 160-170 worms per once at about 1″ long. They are sorted by width in a sifting tray, so some may be a bit longer or shorter than one inch.
When kept in the fridge they stop maturing to the next lifecycle stage between deliveries. Occasionally, one may pupate en route, but not to worry they won’t be turned down by a chicken. If allowed to sit and continue pupation, a Darkling Beetle will emerge, which in turn will lay eggs that hatch into tiny mealworms, thus closing the lifecycle loop.
