About Oregon Worm Works
WE'VE ALWAYS LOVED WORMS
Michael Buck grew up in Roseburg, and after some time in the military and college moved back to Douglas County with his Texan wife and their young son. They have lived on their off-the-grid homestead for the last 20 years, learning about permaculture farming, solar power, and ditch-digging, all while raising three kids, a dog, a cat, 30 chickens, and a gazillion worms.
Out of a desire to create a successful small business that would remain in and benefit Douglas County, Michael started Oregon Worm Works in 2013 on a shoestring budget. He has worked tirelessly to engineer the business and build a future for Oregon Worm Works right here in Roseburg.
Our core values include creating the highest quality of product, a commitment to sterling integrity in our customer relationships, creating a positive and empowering workplace, and eventually creating 'green' jobs in Douglas County, with a focus on hiring and mentoring people with special needs or who need a second chance in their lives.
