Welcome to MyNoke!
Our name 'Noke' is the Te Reo Māori word for "earthworm'. We are the largest worm farm operators in the world and the leading suppliers of earthworms and earthworm products in New Zealand.
Organic waste from councils and businesses, diverted from landfill, is fed to our special earthworms to be digested. Waste is reduced by 80% volume, and is transformed into 'vermicast' also known as 'worm poo': the best carbon-rich, biologically active, plant growth-promoting soil conditioner you can imagine.
Vermicast is used around the world in agriculture, horticulture, glasshouses, nurseries, vegetable gardens, and in potting mixes. Valuable both commercially and for home gardens and container planting.
Why We Do What We Do
Why is MyNoke doing this?
We love supporting our community! We are a New Zealand business which is passionate about reducing landfill waste and about improving soil health. We want to spread the word about the value of wormfarm products and how landfill volume can be reduced.
Why MyNoke Vermicast?
MyNoke has been producing premium quality vermicast since 2007.
Our products contain pure, mature earthworm castings only. None of our products include bulking agents such as bark or sawdust. Clever gardeners know that it is best to 'feed the soil, not the plant in order to get the best results. When vermicast is added to soil it benefits plants in so many ways, including:
- Stimulates root growth and activity
- Adds beneficial soil micro-organisms to assist plant take-up of nutrients
- Increases water-holding capacity (improves drought resilience)
- Unlocks nutrients already in soil, without adding unnecessary chemicals
- Improves plant resistance to insect pests
- Suppresses plant diseases
- Encourages pollinators and other beneficial insect populations

'The MyNoke team are great to deal with offering excellent communication. They have resources to assist with the fundraising campaign which worked well and many people were keen to buy their products and support kindergarten at the same time. We feel very thankful that we had this opportunity and next time intend to run our campaign for longer which we believe will result in additional sales.'
Tessa Knight - Parent Committee, Kinloch Kindergarten
