Korean Farmers Get Respect
Now it looks like the Koreans are adding worms to their list of official livestock, which makes it possible for worm farmers to get insurance or file for assistance in the case of disaster. (the kinds of disasters listed in the JoongAng Daily article? A flock of early birds, what else?)
Hmmm, according to a representative of a Korean earthworm farmers' association, a worm farm on 3/4 of an acre generates around $50,000 in worm sales each year. Nice work if you can get it.
