We remember very well our beginnings back in 2013 and the lack of information in regards to setting up our snail farm was definitely the biggest obstacle for us to overcome. Since then we spent the last 8 years on research & development and as a result of this, we designed two types of extensive Snail Farming Courses to share our knowledge & experience with anyone who is looking to set up and successfully run their own snail farm.
Our Snail Farming Courses have been designed around all mistakes we had made in the past as for us it is very important for you to learn all the pros & cons when farming snails before you invest your own resources.
During the course, we are going to teach you step by step how to set up your own snail farm without falling into any traps, how to successfully run your farm during each stage of the cycle reducing mortality rate & labour cost and what challenges and obstacles you can expect. We provide two signature courses:
