Our Canadian Nightcrawlers are hand picked at night by pickers wearing head lamps. Most fields are just across the US border in southeast Canada. Pickers crawl through the fields on hands and knees with a coffee can tied around their waists and a miner's lamp on his head An experienced picker might pick as many as 20,000 nightcrawlers a night. He is given specifications on size--they do the best they can at that speed.
The winter and early spring supply must be picked before the ground freezes in winter.
DMF stores millions in walk-in coolers to supply winter and early spring sales.
DMF always ships a plus count. UJ
