Meanwhile, back at the Worm Ranch...

Howdy, Pardner! Did you know that Lorain once had a worm ranch? It was called the Del-Cin Worm Ranch, and it was out on the open prairie of Meister Road!
   I found this ad in the 1959 Lorain Phone Book and was intrigued. Did the company employ worm-boys to wrangle the wiggly critters?
   I especially love the illustration - the worm is grinning away even as he is about to become grub for a chub.
   My research showed that the Del-Cin Worm Ranch must have been in operation for a very short time before becoming worm food itself.
