Farm Shop

We have a shop at our farm in Essex selling all our website range – worms, maggots, bedding material and wormeries for composting, worms and mealworms for bird, chicken, reptile and amphibian feeds, substantial savings are made by collecting any of our products.

Pre-packed baits

A wide range of pre-packed baits from Sensas and Van Den Eynde and other bait manufacturers, these include pellets, groundbaits, ground bait ingredients, flavourings and additives, if you would like to know if we stock your favourites please call us on 01245 381933.


We sell white, red, mixed red/white maggots. On arrival all maggots are thoroughly cleaned, removing old skins and debris, they are put into fresh sawdust and immediately chilled, this process is repeated several times whilst in stock ensuring you receive fresh and clean maggots. We usually have large quantities available, particularly for Carp anglers but it would be wise to call us on 01245 381933 to check first.

Lobworms and Dendrobaena

Worms are available in medium, large, and mixed sizes, in a variety of quantities from a £2 tub to 10kg bulk. Also available are our large “Worm keeper” tubs designed to keep worms fresh and healthy without having to worry about the right container or suitable bedding material.
